Through his family history, he is deeply connected to horses. For several generations, the family’s breeding “Yeguada Valenzuela” has been a treasure that is passed on from generation to generation.
Leonardo was born with this knowledge, as well as his love for horses. His path as a rider began very early. His training took him to the Real Escuela in Jerez and several well-known names. He built his center de Equirestioco near Lineares. Idyllically located between olive groves and the Castillo de Tobaruela Lineares.
With a lot of professionalism, empathy and a lot of love, Leonardo trains customers’ horses in various disciplines of horsemanship. His fine way of riding, as well as his fascination for equestrian sports, make him an instructor with heart and mind, pure passion for riding in all its facets.
….. so I turned my hobby, horse riding, into a job. It presented me with many challenges. How do I find a trainer and instructor, who can help me to find the right horses in Andalusia, how do I get the horses to customers in the best way?
But worried enough about it. I learned Spanish, packed my bags and flew to Spain to meet these people where I bought a PRE for myself. Direct hit – we traveled from stable to stable, chatting with many riders, breeders and sellers.
That’s how I got to know Leonardo. Fortunately, he was looking for someone who could help him market his courses and horses better, so we got together and tried our luck. We are now a small team.
All initial concerns were soon gone. Our selected horses are all in our possession, are trained, cared for and well looked after by Leo in Lineares. I take care of every single customer personally and Jesus transports our darlings in a small but nice van across Europe to their new home. This is how the Passion-Barock company came into being, which quickly developed into “my passion”.
At the moment I am constantly commuting between Austria and Spain, I am always looking for future companions for our customers, I regularly visit our favorites in Arcos and I am looking forward to many more years
I would like to thank all my customers from the bottom of my heart for the trust they have placed in Passion-Baroque and also in me. Above all, I am pleased that I am constantly being sent feedback with pictures and videos on how the horses are doing in their new home. The personal reunion with my customers later on, where I see the further development of their favorites, gives me a lot of pleasure and is a great honor for me.
Therefore, despite the stressful business life, I would like to personally thank all my customers again for the trust they have placed in me!
We are a small but fine company that sells Andalusian horses with love, professionalism and dedication. All of these horses are owned by us. I always try to put myself in the shoes of the customer during the purchasing process. The health status of our treasures also has top priority, but the feeling towards the horses is also a very important aspect. Even if this is not to everyone’s taste and therefore not all customers are reached, it is very important to me personally to act in this way.
The riding paradise is equipped with 12 very spacious boxes. A large lunging circle, as well as a small and a large rectangle round off the riding pleasure. Idyllically located, so that the horses are not only offered a great atmosphere in the stable, but also the view of the Castillo makes the rider’s heart beat faster. All pitches are equipped with an irrigation system, that’s where our treasures live and work!
