While searching for your new horse, you are likely to visit a number of stables and travel around Portugal. 

When you organize a horse buying trip with Lusitano World, our team will arrange a well-planned tour, take care of all logistics and travel arrangements, booking hotels and restaurants and defining the best traveling route. One of our advisors will also accompany you during all time.

All expenses of the Lusitano World team member who accompanies you must be covered by you, including: transport, meals and accommodation (in case it is needed). The summary of these costs will be sent to you before your arrival and verified/adjusted in the end of your trip.

We will most certainly pick you up at the airport and will also drop you back at the airport for your flight home. You have 3 airport options - Lisbon; Porto or Faro. We will indicate you the best option according to the travel route that will be defined.

In general it is not necessary to rent a car, as a LW team member will personally escort you to see all the horses in our company car. We will pick you up at the hotel every morning and drive you during the day.

This is a paid service: as we plan the trip route we will provide you an estimate of the number of kilometers we will be driving. Normally this option will cost you less than renting your own car.

Lusitano World works with a large network of breeders, the most reputable riders, small yards and private owners.

Therefore, the horses announced in our website are usually stabled all through Portugal. The detailed location of the horses will be provided to you when we close the short-list of your favorite candidates and finalize our itinerary planning.

Lusitano World strongly advises all horse owners to have a complete vet check before they sell their horses with us.

Generally, the horses we offer for sale have been vetted at some point in their lives. It could be some more recently than others. You can find this information on the online profile of each horse and ask our team for more details for each specific horse. You should always perform your own vet-check when you intend to buy a horse.

The horses announced in Lusitano World can belong to private owners; breeders; investitors or to Lusitano World. 

Lusitano World usually indicates the price range of the horses announced for sale, allowing you to evaluate if a horse of your interest is in your price range. If you want an exact price for a horse please contact us directly.

The price of the horse always include the sales agency commission so that you always know the final price asked for a certain horse. 

Lusitano World makes every effort to set realistic and fair prices - yet the final decision on the price and its negotiation is, in the end, up to the horse owner.

In some cultures it is usual to leave plenty of space for negotiating the final price. With Lusitano World's horse selection you can expect only a moderate level of price negotiation.

In Portugal, all horses owned by a business have VAT added on to the price announced. VAT rate will be 6% for breeding stallions and mares and 23% if a horse for leisure - geldings are normally included in this section.

Lusitano World will always help you to clarify all tax-related issues and guide you through the buying process with the support of our legal department.

All horse purchases done with Lusitano World include a purchase contract prepared by our legal department. 

Payment for the horse can be made directly to the owner of the horse via international bank transfer, or directly to Lusitano World who can mediate the business payment if you feel this is safer or a more comfortable option.
