In November 2021, the Clube Hípico de Santo Amaro hosted the 16th Brazilian Sport Horse National Festival. During the first week of the event, 1m00 and 1m30 ‘open’ competitions took place with approximately 250 horses and served as a warm-up to the second week of the event.

Young horses (four to eight years old) went through two qualifying competitions for 50 spots in the grand finals called ‘BH of the Future’, in which the pairs returned on equal footing for the jump-off. Four- and five-year-old horses were timed; six-, seven-, and eight-year-olds jumped against the clock.
A total of 26 four-year-olds jumped clear around the course designed by Gabriel Malfatti and went to the tiebreaker. Campbella C Jmen (Carbacan Jmen x Ritual Jmen), ridden by Ricardo Nascimento Saragioto was the winner, just 6/100ths of a second inside the allowed time of 48 seconds, in 47:94. Maurício de Oliveira Franco jumped into second place aboard Corsário das Cataratas (Calisco Jmen x Silverstone) in 47:67. Finishing third was Lycam Cooper (Quantum x Quick Star) with Thiago Rhavy De Sa E Silva, +0.59 outside the time, while Heinz RJ (Kannan x Peritos) and Cicero Faustino Barros also recorded a clear round +0.76 – which was good enough for fourth place.

Both Candy Girl Jmen (Cornet Phaeton Jmen) ridden by Jose Roberto Reynoso Fernandez Filho and Corbela CHJB (Cartel Jb (Ia) x Clinton Jmen) with Luiz Felipe Pimenta Alves jumped clear, but at the expense of +0.80 and +0.87 outside the ideal time.
The five-year-old class included 52 pairs, 25 of whom qualified for the jump-off inside the non-communicated time allowed. The best Brazilian Sport Horse was Cornet Shot Jmen (Cornet Obolensky x Rae Jmen Goldfinger), ridden de Jose Roberto Reynoso F. Filho, with a clear round in 47:87, just 0.13 inside the ideal time. Also very close to the time allowed were Icaro Josilmar (Vigo D Arsouilles x Azteca Vdl) and Gabriel de Queiroz Gouveia, who finished second with a faultless round and 0.22 seconds to spare. Third place was for Quicky Boy Jmen (Quiram Jmen x Canavaro Jmen) with Rodrigo Chaves Nunes, 0.33 inside the time. Luciana Camargo jumped clear with Celestino Jmen (Calisco Jmen x Comme Il Faut) to finish fourth in 47:59 and -0.41. Valoubet Tok (Baloubet du Rouet x Kannan) ridden by Luiz Felipe Pimenta Alves, and Luna Rossa das Videiras (Ircos du Rouet x Cs Campari Junior) with Otaviano Vilaça ranked fifth and sixth with zero faults and -0.46 and -0.66, respectively.
