"It's a beautiful activity where spiritedness and speed of the “thoroughbred” is combined with the skill and daring of the rider , the passion and dedication of the breeders and owners, with the adrenaline of victory or defeat of its exponent , the final onslaught of the horses with the hope and excitement of fans and gamblers."

BETTING FOR DIFFERENCE
Domado is inspired by the sport of horse racing, the world of bets. Domado rescues this concept and transmits it through its products and through it's slogan “Betting for a life” which refers to the option for life, for the life of horses. These products are 100% cruelty-free, meaning no animal suffers in the manufacturing process, because it’s a simple hair cut.
The difference is in making design products without undermining the environment and living beings. Domado is looking to change people's minds and designers minds as well, based on the belief that someone’s trash can be a real treasure for others.
