Uruguayan and foreign investments in the equine sector have spurred in recent years, mainly due to the rising interest in breeding and training horses for top level international competitions. One of the areas with more growth prospects is the training and breeding of horses for endurance competitions, a discipline consisting of resistance races running from 60 to 160 kilometers.
It is precisely in this area where the training company, Pio Endurance, obtains the perfect Endurance horse formula from the breeding of Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses with Raid thoroughbred stallions, undisputable winners in Equestrian Raid. Pio Endurance trains both horses and riders for meeting the highest international standards in endurance training to compete in other countries and to represent Uruguay around the world.
Businessman Pío Olascoaga, responsible for Pio Endurance, mentions in this video how thanks to Uruguay XXI’s support they started to export horses to new markets, which they previously could not access. Likewise, the Institute’s promotion of Pio Endurance and its participation in international fairs such as the Dubai International Horse Fair helped the firm to establish connections with important businessmen in the horse world.
