The Garrano horse


My challenge, my adventure, my courage to run against tenderness!
Times have changed and modernity has been an asset to this delightful animal, which now moves freely like poetry in motion, becoming the ex-libris of the Peneda Gerês National Park. Here you can easily see some groups of garrons in the wild, especially in the Planalto de Castro Laboreiro
It is a millennial presence in Northwest Iberia; he developed close ties with the people in times of peace and in times of war. His memory merges with the history of Portugal, both in arduous battles, and pulling the plow, mounted or trailer on small and large journeys.
Classified as a protected species, contemplating Garrano in its natural habitat awakens sensations and feelings capable of strengthening you to take back, as if by magic, the reins of your life.
José Carlos Ary dos Santos already said, “My challenge, my adventure, my courage to run against tenderness”.
