CELERE (pronounced See-Lair) is the very eye catching Lusitano approved breeding stallion selectively sourced from Portugal in March 2014 as Victoria's Para-Dressage mount for European competition in the lead up to the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.

August 2016 Victoria and her husband made the decision to import CELERE to Australia in 2016 as CELERE had stolen their hearts, both believing there was something very special about CELERE.

CELERE has beautiful presence with power, grace, bone structure and three extraordinary gaits, but what sets CELERE apart from the rest is his outstanding temperament which he is renown for worldwide! FEI officials on many occasions have been left to believe CELERE is a gelding based on his very relaxed demeanor and gentleman like manners and how he admires and takes great care of his owner/rider Victoria is far from amazing.

CELERE has presented himself on the Australian competition scene like a true star, carrying his Para Equestrian rider to winning numerous Champion titles at many prestigious Australian and International dressage events. The biggest highlight to date in their career has been in August 2019 when they were named on the Australian Long List for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics Games; they achieved this by gaining 5 qualification scores over only 2 Australian Team selection qualifier events, 2 scores being over 71% at International competition and taking home Champion Para FEI Grade II at both Sydney & Brisbane CPEDI. To date the successful duo are unbeatable.

CELERE is not just a highly successful FEI Para horse, he has proven himself to be the perfect all-rounder in all disciplines! Victoria and CELERE regularly compete at Official Medium level, winning and placing against competitive classes and competed at the prestigious Willinga Park CDI and NSW State.

CELERE was unbeatable at the 2018 Buckskin Nationals where he won every class he went in, he has also taken Victoria to Supreme Champion rider, winning at Show Hunter classes and has been unbeatable in all 'Led Buckskin Stallion' classes.

CELERE was very successful when based in Europe having won a gold medal of morphology in Portugal as youngster, competed Elementary level in Portugal 2014-2015, campaigned in dressage at Golegã fair 2014, selected to represent Australia at FEI Para Dressage CPEDI 3* in Hartpury England and prior to being exported to Australia was winning at Gold Official Medium in England.


There
are only a small number of Lusitano stallions in Australasia that are 'Approved for breeding' with the APSL Portuguese Lusitano Studbook and CELERE is one of those stallions - a formal accreditation of his quality as a Lusitano stallion and breeding sire

Breeding approval accreditation for stallions is only presented to Purebred Lusitanos that have been presented to a judging panel and passed the vast revision process.

Purebred Lusitano stallions are accessed in morphology where the stallions movement without rider and confirmation is assessed and given specific points for each body structure and rated on a scale from 'satisfactory to very good', this process also involves measurements taken of certain body structures of the stallion making sure they fall within the correct margins expected for the Lusitano breed. Stallions are excepted to be presented under saddle to show their functionality as a riding horse in walk/trot/canter. Semen of the stallion must also be collected and tested for quality prior to the morphology and functionality presentations. There is only a pass or fail.
