The 2 years old Lusitano foal LUX DR, was The 2017 male champion of the XXIX International Lusitano Festival that took place June 2017 at Cascais. LUX DR is a son of ESCORIAL (by SPARTACUS) and ZOBERANA (by SOBERANO). Gold medal and best lusitano male at the Festival, competing directly in really strong lusitano male classes. A horse that belongs to our Stud and to Lusitanos Monte da Tramagueira he was breed by Duarte Rico Stud, Since the begining we saw the excelent qualities of LUX and we think that he has potencial to be an improver to the Lusitano breed . Lux will be now tested, and if his funcionality is a reality he will be for sure a Top Stalion and an upgrade of the Lusitano race. We believe that horses like LUX are, for sure, the future of the Lusitano breed.

ACM STUD 22 Years
Precisely 22 years ago arrived at Monforte da Beira our first 3 mares (PEUGA, TOPEIRA and SARAGOÇA). Those mares became the basis of the actual ACM Stud.
Many have been the difficulties, many have been the disappointments, but many have been the joys that brought us to the present day.
- Thank you to all the professionals (Vets., riders, ferries,) that helped us, most of them since the begining
- Thank you to all our friends for their unconditional support
- Thank you for all the criticism, they made us stronger.
- Thank you to all riders/clients that believed in our horses and took them around the world, (it is so gratefull to see a smile on their faces).
In this new turn of page new projects and new challenges approched, but now we have the help of the new generation.
THANK YOU ALL !!!!!!!!!!!
