How long have you been involved in the equestrian industry & how did you start out?


I bought my first horse at the age of 13 from an ad on the corner of a San Paulo street for $100. At 18 years old I moved to Belgium, working grooming jobs until I landed an opportunity at Ludo Philippaert’s stables. I started as a groom and then I became a rider. I did a lot of flat work, and my horses progressed well. Ludo then gave me the opportunity to do some competitions. I was entrusted with some international level horses and my career really started from there.
