Portuguese riding, considered Intangible Cultural Heritage thanks to entities such as the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art or the Portuguese Association of Lusitano Horse Breeders, and widely practiced in countries around the world, is characterized by the typical clothing of the rider, the use of Lusitanian horses and some special accessories for riding decorated in the purest Portuguese style.

The typically Portuguese bridle have many different ornaments and other pieces, such as:

-Cortezia buckles and passants: on cheek straps, noseband, throat strap and reins. Within the Portuguese buckles, there are many models (oval, square, campino, plain...)

-Cortezia ornaments: they are placed in all the parts of the bridle. The main ones are the rosettes, the flowers and the abelhinas.

-Portuguese bit: as a complement to the Portuguese bridle, this ornate bit is typical, matching the buckles (gold or nickel-plated), forming the beautiful set that makes up the horse's bridle.
