Sucandi® - Cavalos do Brasil originated from a little girl's dream. Giovana was only six years old when she watched the Olympics in 2004 and she was amazed and expressed her wish to someday ride at the Olympics as well. Her parents started immediately to research about the art of riding. In their search they discovered this wonderful breed: the Lusitano. The belief in their daughter's dream and in the international market for Lusitanos created Sucandi® - Cavalos do Brasil. Today Sucandi is a reference for selection, training and export of sport Lusitanos.


Even further Sucandi got together with Bonanza: Brazil's number one sales barn of lusitanos. This joint venture brought together the international market experience from Sucandi with the largest selection of lusitanos available in this country along with their excellent riding team.


Sucandi invests heavily in the training of both our riders and horses. Since 2012 Sucandi has Master Paulo Caetano from PCI - International as our main coach. Master Caetano from Portugal comes to Brazil at least 4 times a year to bring our riders and horses to the European standards. Besides we can always rely in the expertise from Brazil’s biggest dressage name Orlando Facada.

Sucandi Cavalos do Brasil can offer the largest selection and the best training available.
