Larry - West Bloomfield - Michigan - USA
Marge and I want thank you for the most extraordinary experience. We didn't know what to expect when we got off the plane, but you made us feel immediately at ease. Thank you for having us as your guests at your incredible estate. I've never ridden in such a beautiful facility. The horses you selected for me to try were all within the criteria that I described in my emails. Surprisingly, you knew which of the six horses would be my dream horse and you were right! But you didn't expect me to fall in love with two! So now I have one coming to America, and the second staying to train with Mr. Facada.
I cannot thank you enough for prevailing upon Mr. Facada to give me lessons for the week. I know that he doesn't need the money and takes very few students. At 81, the legenday dressage master of Brazil is the very best instructor I've ever had.
Riding under his tutelage was a dream come true. Your family never stopped smiling, caring, and doing for Marge and me. You made us feel that we were friends, not customers from day one. Last but not least, all of the cynics in Michigan who thought I was nuts to travel to Brazil to buy a horse were wrong. The horses you brought to the estate for me to try, were beautiful, sound, safe, trained well beyond my riding abilities and were value priced. I spent more than a year researching Lusitanos, Andalusians, and various warmbloods in north America, South America, and Europe. Thanks to Sucandi, I found not one, but two dream horses to love as my riding partners.
I look forward to seeing you in the fall. Again, Marge and I want to thank you, Mr. Facada, his wife Donarita, and all the extraordinary and talented people you introduced us to while in your care and company.
It was an experience of a life time.
Larry and Marge
