Interagro: With nearly 600 horses, Interagro, Brazil is the largest Lusitano breeding and export center in the world. Cecilia Gonzaga heads the stud- farm initiated on a historic coffee plantation in 1975, by her father, Dr. Paulo Gaviao Gonzaga, the author of three books about the Lusitano hors. The Lusitanians selected a noble, easy to ride horse, famous for its intelligence and willingness to work. These qualities allied to the modern development of the equestrian sports and the exceptional performance of the Lusitanos in all disciplines, from jumping to dressage and driving created an ever growing demand for the Lusitano and its possession became a symbol of status.



Horses & Humans Research Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, exists to facilitate universal understanding and appreciation of the significant influence of horses on humans. The primary goal is to support, promote and fund scientific research that explores the claimed, yet unsubstantiated benefits of equine assisted activities, leading to the discovery of the most effective methods and techniques for conducting thousands of existing and future programs. The secondary goal is to educate the public (including parents, donors, insurance companies and physicians) on research findings so that equine assisted activities programs become more accessible to those in need. Applications are now being accepted for the May 15, 2008 grant proposal deadline.
