Born in São Paulo, Brazil, and raised in the south of Brazil, Lucho Guimarães has been involved with Arabian horses since 1996. This passion for the Arabian horse has led him to travel the world and work with many of the top trainers and breeders, always questing for more knowledge.
In 2009 Lucho opened his first training facility in Brazil, this also presented the opportunity to show and win at the largest shows, not just in Brazil, but, in the rest of the south american countries such as Ecuador and Chile.
In 2013 Lucho moved to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where he lived and worked as trainer/handler for over a year traveling to shows within the country and also to Qatar, Sharja, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
These multiple international experiences and the lifelong connections that have formed from them enable Lucho to be in a premier position to select and market Arabian horses worldwide.
Lucho’s wife, Ashley Guimarães, is a passionate skilled “horsewoman” herself, and manages the business and marketing for Lucho Guimarães Arabians. Her dedication is second to none and she is the backbone of our program.
We strive not only for successful results in the ring, but also to provide the highest level of care and proper training to each and every horse in our barn daily. Each animal is worked with and observed daily to ensure their optimal health, conditioning and mental soundness.
Lucho Guimarães has sought growth and knowledge his whole life, traveling the world in a quest that has led him from one opportunity to the next. All paths have led to the same thing: the Arabian horse. Since it has been in business, Lucho Guimarães Arabians has experienced the profound success that only happens when one is following the journey that has been meant all along.
