West Coast Lusitanos is owned and operated by Jay and Nancy Dibble with assistance from their son Brady.
After spending 45 years of my life working with horses in many aspects of the business from: starting young horses, working cattle, working with breeding programs at Cal Poly SLO and in Central California, riding and showing in western and english pleasure and equitation classes, trail and stock horse classes, hunter and jumper classes, speed events, eventing and dressage, I have come to the conclusion that what is most important, is the relationship you have with the horse.
That is what really matters at the end of the day.
Jay is an agricultural banker and a true herdsman. With his wife, Nancy, he has spent 25 years of his life running cattle. Horses are excellent partners in handling and managing the movement of livestock and the horses enjoy the work as well.
Brady is a student of Classical dressage and works for the family operation in all aspects of the business. He is currently a business major at Cal State University Fresno. Brady became interested in working with horses after he began working with the Lusitano breed.
