Davi Carrano

 

Davi Carrano from Brazil met Jochen Schleese at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington KY in 2010, together with Dr. Solange Mikail, DVM. Together they were so completely impressed by what Jochen had to say about saddle fit for horse and rider, that they worked together to get Jochen invited to Sao Paulo a year later to lecture as a guest presenter to the veterinary congress being held there Sept. 2011.

Sao Paulo is a city of approximately 19 million people in its metropolitan area, with 21 veterinary universities in the entire country. (Canada has 5 with a total population of approx. 32 million).

Davi is the head trainer for the Lusitano association at the Manege Santa Adelaide in Cotia – just outside of Sao Paulo – and has been a gracious host for all of Jochen’s visits to Brazil. Davi himself has a degree in Zoology, and was instrumental in the design of our popular “Obrigado” saddle. The name means “thank you” in Portuguese – which is the official language of Brazil and is what Davi said he thought his horses were saying when they were under saddle. Jochen was lucky enough to be able to ride while visiting and get some private lessons from Davi.

Davi together with Dr. Mikail has worked to establish the Saddlefit 4 Life® South American Headquarters in Sao Paulo, where Jochen works with another veterinarian, Dr. Luciana Kratschmer to offer training and certification for aspiring equine ergonomists.

"I attended the Saddlefit 4 Life® Equine Ergonomist Training Course to obtain more information on saddle fitting.  At the time I was having some issues with my horse, who acted uncomfortable under saddle and would occasionally buck at the canter.  The course went above and beyond my expectations of what I would learn in five days.  I was able to go home, evaluate what was causing my horse discomfort, adjust the type of tack I was using, and it fixed his bucking issue on the spot! The class more than paid for itself in that moment and I have Saddlefit 4 Life® to thank for it!"
