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.
Giovana was the youngest equestrian in Rio 2016 and also represented Brazil in The World Equestrian Games in Tryon 2018. In 2020 she will graduate from Veterinarian School and will split her time between her new home base in Florida and Europe with her trainer.
Giovana´s trainer and also Sucandi business’s partner is the Spanish Olympic rider Claudio Castilla. He both trains our horses and riders as he sources for horses in Europe for our selection.
Sucandi Cavalos do Brasil can offer the largest selection and the best training available. The only one with double Olympic seal of approval.
