Marialva DC will always produce black based foals, no reds.
May 10, 2019 we were so lucky to have Diane Williams visit the ranch and spend some time photographing Marialva DC and truly getting a feel for his spirit.
We are beyond amazed at the paintings of Marialva DC!

We reside and ranch in Gods Country in southeastern Alberta.
We raise black angus cattle and do the majority of our work horseback.
For me the Fascination and respect for the Lusitano started brewing years ago. The bullfighting horse, the original cow horse....I mean what is not to love. We truly believe the Lusitano is different from most other horses. These horses are bondable, sensitive, as as trainable as it gets. Lets face it, their smooth way of moving gets more and more appealing the more miles you ride.
In 2017 we purchased our first Azteca mare Catalina and that following year purchased her full sister Kali.
In December 2018 we flew down to renowned breeders Haras Dos Cavaleiros in Magnolia, TX. The quality of horses and the love for the Lusitano was evident. After looking at several prospects we undoubtably settled on 2 yr old stallion Marialva DC.
In September of 2019 we yet again made the journey back to Haras Dos Cavaleiros, this time to look at purebred Lusitano fillies.
We do not just view our horses as a hobby. Of course they are the most enjoyable part of our ranch and our company but without them we could not get the work done. Long and short of it is we need horses and riding a horse that is a pleasure sure changes things. I do not think one will know the value of a Lusitano till they get to ride one, and chances are they won't have that opportunity. The breed is nothing short of incredible and our passion to promote the breed is only just starting.
