The Portuguese rider already fascinated the audience of “Companions of Light” with impressive dressage performances. Now he is taking part in CAVALLUNA with his own riding team. In addition to beautiful quadrilles with his Friesian horses, he will also be presenting a touching solo act.

 

Learning from the best

The friendly southern European grew up near Lisbon, not far from the riding school owned by Luis Valença – an expert at advanced dressage. At an early age, Filipe discovered his passion for classical riding, and he was able to complete his training with the master himself.

Die majestätischen Friesen gehören unumstritten zu den Publikumslieblingen bei CAVALLUNA. Sie ziehen die Zuschauer binnen Sekunden auf magische Weise in ihren Bann, vor allem wegen ihrer wunderschönen, eleganten Gänge, ihres üppigen Behangs und ihres tiefschwarzen, glänzenden Fells. Neben den „schwarzen Perlen Frieslands“ fasziniert auch der wunderschöne KWPN „Vivaldi“ das Publikum: Mit sportlicher Eleganz begeistert der Wallach große sowie kleine Zuschauer.
