Similar proud posture, convex shape of the body with compact dimensions, profile moderately rounded, the neck is placed high enough and long graceful neck, mane and tail section extended, have lush woolen cloak. Additionally both types of unusual noble movement in different gaits. Often represented with Andalusian breed of horses called the same title, which unites them – “Iberian horse”. This name comes from the “Iberia”, they, as we know, is a very ancient people who lived in the territories of the Iberian Peninsula. Both horse differences the same historical past and also pets are created under the guidance of a horse-breeding culture. Separation of animals is likely only in the territorial restrictions, rather than in some other internal or external characteristics. Differences represented species as provided for in the different breeding books, but books obi underway since the second half of the 20th century (1967), selection experiments are identical, as well as their direction.

Luzitanian breed representatives have mostly shades of gray wool (70%), and only a minority are early and described the suit.
To distinguish species will also help some of the exterior characteristics, but they are so invisible that distinguish them can only real breeders. Luzitanian horses are placed below the tail, longer rounded profile, the body structure itself is much more massive. It is their external data identified as genuine characteristics of true Iberian pets. These differences were due to the fact that the Portuguese fans horses always faithfully took their traditions. In the first place for them rejoneador, in the process of the animals need everything possible and impossible. For example, the Portuguese bullfighting bulls are not killed, but the main goal is just to show the audience a spectacle, but mostly the skill and ability of the rider.
