About Us

Your success is written in the sands...

Unknowingly linked through their mutual love of the Arabian horse, their paths converged while they were paying their dues during their early years in a new land. Eventually, they decided to weave their considerable individual experience, talents, and ambitions together in founding an all-encompassing equine enterprise upon the desert sands of Scottsdale, the epicenter of the American Arabian horse industry. So, in 2010; Sandro Pinha, a native Brazilian; and Gil Valdez, who was born in Mexico, cemented their bond when they christened their joint venture “Arabians International” in Arizona, USA.
