Education and professional experience

Beatriz & Audevard
Currently located in superb facilities in Spain at the “Villa Equus” near Barcelona, Beatriz takes great care to make sure her horses get the very best treatment, whether it is given by herself or specialists. “It’s essential to monitor your horses closely if you want to be successful, particularly at a high level. Audevard products are an invaluable aid when it comes to keeping my horses healthy and making sure they perform well, day to day and during the competition season. We use them a lot and all the vets here recommend them”, explains the champion. Audevard is therefore very proud to have in its team a champion demonstrating such discipline and determination, qualities that are essential to reach the top in Dressage.
