Haras Albar

Haras Albar was created when Carlos Paes do Amaral, a distinguished Brazilian businessman, fell in love with the endurance sport through his wife Samantha who lived in Dubai and was friends with some of the most renowned riders, including Ali Khalfan Al Jahouri. In 2012 their dream of creating an endurance center became true and soon they started to compete regularly with best bloodline horses purchased in Brasil, France and Portugal. Haras Albar hosted two competitions in 2013 and an international endurance festival in 2014 with several international riders attending the ride, which placed them among the most important events in Brazil. For this newly established endurance stud and training center, longevity is paramount and they are to aiming to go on for another 40 years. Their values are expertise, harmony, competitiveness and, above all, the love for the horse and sport. Quoting Carlito, the nickname by which Carlos Paes do Amaral is known; “Endurance is the main reason for Haras Albar’ existence and we are keen to support events like IVEC, whose aim is the development of the sport while safeguarding the welfare of the most amazing athletes of the equestrian world, the endurance horses”.

 

Ameira Endurance Stables (co joined partners with Haras Albar)

Ameira Endurance Stables are located next to the beautiful southwest coast beaches of Portugal. Owner, trainer and international rider Pedro Godinho has been the Portuguese National Champion and has been ranked 7th place on the FEI international ranking. Pedro regularly rides in Brazil, Spain and France. His connection with Brazilian endurance teams started with an amicable exchange with Leo Steinbruch, owner of the Haras Endurance. Initially, they competed in each others countries and which progressed the Ameira Endurance Stables to become the headquarters of their endurance training in Europe. Later on he was requested by the owner of Haras Albar, Carlos Paes do Amaral and better known as Carlito,  to train his horses, which he did successfully by classifying one of his horses to represent the Brazilian Team in the World Championships in Tryon. Moreover Pedro Godinho will represent the Portuguese Team by riding one of the french bred Haras Albar horses, currently in training by Jean-Philippe Frances. Quoting Pedro Godinho about the partnership Ameira Endurance Stables-Haras Albar: ” I couldn’t feel more privileged to work at such a high level in endurance with people that fully trust me and with whom I developed an unwavering friendship throughout the years”
