Elvético was born on 11 March 2009. Like almost all of his Alter colleagues, Elvético joined the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art at the age of four. He is the son of the stallion Viheste who would compete in dressage events. His mother is Zarjuela and he has two brothers at the School: Favorito on his father’s side and Hihato on his mother’s. A specialist in the “Pas de Trois and Quatre”, Elvético is always attempting to attract attention, is very curious and needy and gets distracted by anything.
