Itapira, Brazil (May 31, 2013) – ‘You only live once,’ or YOLO, defines a decade that doesn’t just dream about doing what they love, they go for it. So if your personal pursuit of paradise includes the exhilarating connection to a noble horse or pair put to a fine carriage then Destination Lusitano is about as close to heaven as a combined driving enthusiast can ask for.

 

Destination Lusitano is hosted by Interagro Lusitanos of Brazil, the world’s largest breeder and exporter of Lusitano horses. Interagro is proud to announce an unprecedented opportunity for guests to hone their driving skills with champion driver and Lusitano horse trainer, Mauricio Delucchi. A longtime friend of Interagro, Delucchi has reestablished himself in Uruguay and is partnering with Interagro to provide an unprecedented opportunity to drivers from many countries and levels of expertise. Delucci also has three stunning Lusitano horses in training in Punta Del Este: Zamorim, Bailos (by Noblissimo), and Desordeiro Interagro, a sales prospect by Perdigueiro.

Interagro Lusitanos is known for their talented driving horses, and has proudly hosted expert driving horsemen since 1988, including Antonio Mariano de Souza, who began driving in 1994 in Portugal with Dr. Luiz Lupi at the Coudelaria de Alter. At Interagro, he tutors coachmen and harnesses teams of four-, six-, eight- and ten-in-hand.

 

Only 90 minutes from Viracopos Airport, where you can hop a flight directly to Uruguay and Delucci’s Punta Del Este driving facility, Interagro is a convenient and idyllic location to explore the ultimate equestrian driving experience. “I have experienced horse vacations and clinics in several European countries, but nothing comes close to my trip to Interagro Farm,” said Katie Hoog, an American equestrienne who recently visited Destination Lusitano.

 

“Everyone can find something they enjoy at our farm,” said Cecilia Gonzaga, managing director of Interagro Lusitanos. Interagro offers villas on the farm where guests may lounge at a private pool and savor the Brazilian sunshine, healthy, exotic cuisine, explore more than 1200 acres of rolling hills and coffee bean fields, or experience the ‘living pedigrees’ of the Interagro Lusitano horses among the generations of sires, dams and offspring among this Brazilian utopia.
