As I watch the YouTube video of horse and rider going through their dressage routine, my mind day dreams of a horseback riding vacation in Brazil. I have never ridden a Lusitano horse, but these magnificent animals are certainly pleasing to the eye.
While I haven’t yet met Florian Pass, the owner of Sucandi, an equestrian center in Brazil, I have now added “ride a Lusitano” to my wish list.
I have only met Florian by way of Twitter, a micro blogging platform. I made the mistake of clicking on the Sucandi website and proceeded to waist an entire afternoon looking at pictures of gorgeous Lusitano horses. To make matters worse, I visited their YouTube site and watched these athletes go through seamless dressage routines. True, I didn’t get any writing done, but I did have a nice time going on a horseback riding vacation in Brazil without leaving my home!
If you find yourself in Sao Paulo, Brazil for a horseback riding vacation, Sucandi is located 40 minutes outside of Sao Paulo in Suzano and has a Bed and Breakfast on the equestrian property. Of course, if you are actually considering purchasing a Lusitano from Sucandi while experiencing your horseback riding vacation, they will put you up in their guesthouse inside the farm. Additionally, Florian will arrange for a horseback riding exchange with their exclusive partner equestrian farms.
The Sucandi guesthouse contains five guest suites within the farm with wi-fi Internet access, a swimming pool and additional amenities. Guests can arrange for a private horseback riding lesson with Olympic riders Rogero Clementino or Leandro da Silva. Does life for a horse lover get better than this?
