  • Description


    My name is Jorge António, I am multiethnic and «warm-blooded» of African and European (🦓) descent. I am Brazilian by ethnicity, Mozambican by naturality, Portuguese by nationality and EU citizen by citizenship. I grew up between Africa and Europe.

    And due to «horsey», I decided to change my career into Biosecurity for horses. In which I was recently, November 12, 2020, certified in Biosecurity for Horses by My Horse University.

    My goal is to popularize animals in general, equines in particular and zebras in special, as pets and advise on biosecurity. I am certain that joining you will add value to your environment.

    My proactive actions in biosecurity will offer your horses protection from biological threats. I am ready for long-term cooperation.

    Yours faithfully,
    Jorge António.

  • What else ...

    I advise, as Equine Biosecurity Specialist, stud and equine farmers the following: To ensure your farms are free from potential biohazards, every stud or equine farm, no matter the size, should implement biosecurity practices in their day-to-day management schemes. Having a proactive healthcare program, keeping your stud or farm clean, and isolating new and sick equines are critical to slowing down the spread of diseases. NB: Biosecurity doesn't stop at your stud or farm, it also includes protecting your equine or equines when traveling to other farms or equine events.
