Breeding & pedigree information:
Atlas do Vouga is an athletic stallion with an excellent bloodline. The son of Oceano (MV) with Unicaforma do Top, by Petróleo do Top, Atlas is a light and elegant horse with superb conformation. Atlas has a long neck and is very free through the shoulder. Though Atlas has abundant energy, he has a calm, gentle temperament and is quite sensitive. Graceful and balanced, Atlas performs all of the basic dressage exercises with confidence. His shoulder allows a very free front leg. Atlas delivers three superior gaits, especially the canter which is naturally “uphill.” Atlas do Vouga was taken twice to the International Show in Brazil, known as the biggest Purebred Lusitano show in the world, in 2008 and 2009. He placed second both times with Silver Medal.
