Quabri de L’Isle and Pedro Veniss
A life dedicated to horses
I was born on January 6, 1983 in Sao Paulo (Brazil), into a family of equestrian tradition.
When I was five years old, I started riding under my grandfather’s supervision, and went on to swiftly complete all the junior categories. In the summer of 1996, when I was 14, and thanks to my parents’ neverending support, I went to Europe to see the stables of a good friend who was also a professional horse rider. It was then, seeing the best horse riders competing, that I realized I had found my passion.
This dream finally came true and it has taken me around the world, in the most distinguished competitions. It’s very difficult to choose one single moment out of all my experiences, but if I had to, I would say the acclaimed victory in Geneva’s 2016 Rolex Gran Prix with Quabri de L’Isle, my horse. Neither can I forget the experience of representing Brazil in the Olympics of Rio 2016. Riding in my home town, with the full support of the country, was amazing.
Mine is a life dedicated to horses, filled with a passion that guides me and that I want to express with this website I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Sincerely, Pedro Veniss.

My passion, My friends
Although I’m only showing the horses that are currently competing, there are many other horses that have marked my life.
My other family
You can only be successful if you have the opportunities to ride the best horses and if you have the best professionals by your side.
You reap what you sow
There is not a secret recipe for success beyond hard work. My career started in 2000, but I keep the same eagerness to learn and be better as the first day.
