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.

Dear Sabine, Jochen, Connie and Terri Anne, First let me say thank you for allowing me to participate in the clinic - I wasn't expecting that, and I certainly wasn't expecting a certificate. But seriously, the course was excellent!!  I learned so much and will highly recommend it to our students.  Even if they have no desire to become a saddle fitter, the knowledge they will gain will be invaluable in the field in assessing horses they work with.  Also participating gave me great insight into how your program works and what is involved - at least in the Equine Ergonomist aspect of things - much more so than just observing would have. Everything about the program was very classy, professional, intense - but also fun. Thank you again, it was a privilege to attend and work with you all.  Claire was also a delight. Keep me posted on your thoughts about the online education, and let us know if there is anything we can do to help with Saddlefit 4 Life® or H.I.P.P.O.H. Big hugs to you all.
