"Named after 'Lusitania', the Roman name for Portugal, the Lusitano shares many traits with the Andalusians of Spain but has been recognized as a distinct breed since the 1960's. The Lusitano is a modern sport horse originating from a long tradition of noble and renowned riding horses.
Chosen for their athleticism and attentiveness to the rider, the Lusitano was bred to be the ideal riding horse. Be it working with cattle or as covered war horses, Lusitanos are nimble, brave and always willing to do their best.
Today Lusitanos are found in all disciplines, from the highest schools of dressage to endurance to driving and are often found in film productions. These exceptional horses are at their best when challenged both physically and mentally."
The Lusitano can perform a special dressage move called the Piaffe. The animation can be activated by pressing the spacebar, but only when standing still, otherwise the horse will jump instead of Piaffe.
Five hairstyles can be purchased for the Lusitano at the Horse Stylist.
- Button Braids

- Dapple Grey
- The Pearl Gene, also known as "Barlink Factor", is a rare gene found mainly in Iberian horses like Lusitanos and Andalusians, but has had rare occurrences in the American Quarter Horse, American Paint Horse, and the Peruvian Paso.
- Unlike other new Gen 2 and 3 horses, the Lusitano wasn't released with a grazing animation. On May 2, 2018, the animation was released.
- Despite the Cremello coat being advertised as released during the December 19, 2018 update, the iOS version of the app did not update with this change until December 22, 2018.
- In February 2020, the Lusitano's animations were modified because of an internal error in the game's servers, and replaced with the Andalusian's animations. This caused a lot of backlash within the SSO community. With the exception of the slow gallop, the animations were changed back to normal in May/June 2020, a few months after the incident.
- There are a few animation errors with the Lusitano:
- When in an extended canter or full gallop, the mane will glitch into the neck.
- The front hooves will glitch into the ground while rearing.
