My Story

My grandfather came from Portugal to Brazil in the second class of a ship when he was just 16 years old. He started the saga of a family of entrepreneurs.

My mother, a dressage rider, appears in Brazilian editions of the Guinness Book of World Records. She won the bronze medal at the Pan-American Games in Caracas.
She was and always will be my greatest teacher.
My father was a polo player for a long time.
He is my greatest enthusiast.
My brothers André and Fábio also represented Brazil in the sports, becoming the two best polo players in the country.

One day, I decided to take the same trip as my grandfather, but this time it was the other around. I left Brazil at the age of 18 and came to Europe to trace my own path.
Over the course of my career, I devised a method that seeks to balance eight aspects to achieve optimal performance in both personal, professional and sports life. This method helped me become the four-time Olympic showjumper I am today.
I have become a successful, four-time Olympic showjumping rider who has competed for Brazil in Athens, and for Portugal in London and Rio, where I finished in ninth place.
I have ranked fourth in the Top 10 world ranking and won many five-star Grand Prix over the last 25 years, competing at top level and winning the Longines Global Champions Tour in 2015 and the Rider of the Year in 2012.
