Francisco de Paula
Founder and Administrator of the 4 HER BREEDING SOCIETY
"My friends know me as Kiko. I am a 60-year-old Brazilian, born in family of farmers. During all my life, I have been involved with animal and the countryside.
I started Polo training in Rio de Janeiro when I was 28 years old and both of my sons accompanied me. I realised immediately that this sport has a serious toll on horses and decided to have my own horses and stables.
With my sons practicing and getting better and better, I felt the urge to breed animals more resistant and competitive for 21 scores tournaments.
In 2005, I decided to guarantee my horse breeding method, buy building a professional stable in Punta Del Este, in Uruguay. In 2013, I transferred the scripture to Bagé, in Rio Grande do Sul – Brazil.
Time has since passed and my kids forgotten Polo and the enchantment for raising animals. However, my passion did not diminish whatsoever. I still dream and study the diverse amount of horse lineages, experimenting on cross breeding and observing the results.
Worried about my life’s work going unused, I decided to share with all women polo players, all my amazing results and in a new and democratic way. Therefore, I invite every one of you, to participate in all this incredible process of creation: from picking the stallions and the mares, until hand feeding sugar tablets to your trained and unique animal.
From wherever you may be, uniting technology, tradition and caring.
Welcome! My wish is to see my dream continue with you."
