Lusitano at a Trot, charcoal equine drawing by Carol Engles


16 x 20 charcoal drawing on paper. I tried to capture the power of a Lusitano horse at a trot. The Lusitano is a Spanish breed from Portugal, famous for their courage and athleticism in the bull ring. (Hopefully, we will see the end of bull fighting.) These horses are also excellent sport horses i.e dressage and more.  SOLD along with 3 others to a new home in Washington State!
