Additional Comments:
Orfeo is a refined, flashy Veiga PSL stud bred by Gaston Santos, Sr., of Rancho La Jarilla in Mexico with several famous stallions in his pedigree, including Nilo, Bailador, Cofre, and Que-Ba. He was an active bullfighter in Mexico until imported in 2005.

Orfeo has what the vet calls perfect leg conformation. He is very refined in build yet very baroque with the classic "Veiga head" and square, powerful build. He has a long neck for his short back, an ideal combination for dressage work. He does not have "staccato" gaits, rather he has great air time and long, uphill gaits. He is extremely free in his body, especially in his shoulders, having a particularly expressive Spanish walk and a heavenly canter. He has a powerful extension and a very natural piaffe, not to mention a huge, expressive passage. He also overtracks easily, quite unusual for his breed and lineage. He has done well in dressage competition, scoring 8s and 8.5s on his lengthenings. We intend to debut him in 2nd level soon. He shows great affinity for haute ecole and long-reining, making a wonderful exhibition horse.

Orfeo has a great work ethic and is extremely trainable, learning new things very quickly with enthusiasm. While he is very playful and has a great sense of humor, he is super gentle and kind and quiet. He is a great trail horse and is good around mares and other horses, even when they invade his space in the arena. He is a perfect lesson horse with his forgiving nature and comfortable gaits.

Orfeo also has the most stamina of any horse I know. He can go for 2-3 hours before panting hard, making him an excellent candidate for producing a more all-around dressage/endurance horse. His strong, clean, healthy joints and sure-footedness are passed on to his offspring, providing an excellent bonus for an all-around prospect. He is also a very handsome and willing jumper with good instincts and awareness of the jump.

Orfeo passes his excellent topline, exceptionally correct legs, and gentle, sweet temperament, not to mention athleticism evident from the first attempts to stand. Even his cross-bred foals are very true to the traditional Lusitano type, even with very modern thoroughbred-type mares. He also has a very strong propensity to produce chestnut-based foals.
