Casa Real Perpetual Trophy

Donated by Luiz C. Menezes in the memory of his Andalusian stallion Casa Real.

It was whilst living and working with his mentor coach in Portugal that Luiz was introduced to the Andalusian and Lusitano Breeds. He was the owner of the first Andalusian stallion in Tasmania which he trained for competition work and his own leisure pleasure. The stallion was Casa Real. 

Luiz worked in France as a coach, having completed his United Kingdom coaching credentials: B.H.S.A.I. and B.H.S.I. He then immigrated to Australia early in 1970 and gained his Australian coaching credentials, N.C.A.S., E.F.A. II, Pony Club Coach and Coach Educator.

Luiz established Cheval Equitation in the late 70's. He also worked for adult education for over 20 years introducing leisure pleasure riding to residents of Kingborough and surrounding areas.

Sadly, Luiz passed away aged 65 on 22nd of July 2015.
