Wellington, FL (April 22, 2015) – Interagro Lusitanos’ Vade-Mecum was featured in a recent music video with international musician and classically trained violinist DSharp. The 13-year-old Grand Prix gelding from the Xique-Xique and Yacht lines (Noblissimo Interagro–Pecunia Interagro, Yacht) was ever the professional, acting cool and calm in the midst of lights, cameras, and live music.
The music video was taped at Grand Prix dressage rider Caroline Roffman’s beautiful Lionshare Dressage in Wellington, Florida. As expected, Vade-Mecum acted like a true star and was unfazed with a film crew from Afflux Studios, the lights and cameras, and a cadre of equipment. Interagro Lusitanos are known for their willing, calm disposition, making Vade-Mecum a natural for the part in DSharp and Caroline Roffman’s music video collaboration. Interagro horses have been featured in TV commercials, books, and more than 21 covers of international magazines, but this was the first music video featuring an Interagro horse.
Vade-Mecum Interagro was one of three Lusitanos to come to the U.S. this year from the Interagro Lusitanos. Grand Prix dressage rider Pia Aragão brought two other Interagro Lusitanos to South Florida from Brazil to give them experience in the international arena at the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival. She enjoyed a successful season in Wellington, Florida.
Aragão and Baldor Interagro, a 9-year-old Lusitano stallion, excelled in competition during the show series in Wellington, Florida, and held up the now 2-year tradition of having an Interagro Lusitano competing in the Nation’s Cup competition held at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. With Zepelim Interagro, Aragão claimed multiple Grand Prix wins during the season, including winning the Grand Prix Freestyle at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby National competition. After leaving Florida, Aragão and her mounts returned to Brazil to compete and train in preparation for the selection trials for the 2015 Pan American Games.
Meanwhile, Vade-Mecum Interagro stayed in the U.S. after completing his video debut and enjoying his time as a celebrity. He is now being offered for sale. Vade-Mecum is a star in the show ring as well, with top scores in the Grand Prix. This talented Lusitano will soon be the star in his lucky new owner’s show!
