During the first semester of 2022, some 53 Brazilian Sport Horses validated themselves in FEI competitions out of 600 entered in FEI-level events in all three Olympic disciplines: showjumping, dressage, and eventing.
The International Equestrian Federation’s database includes over 272,000 horses, with 60,000 new animals being registered annually by the various National Federations. Currently 44 showjumping horses, three dressage, and six eventing horses represent the ABBCH (Brazilian Sport Horse Breeders’ Association).

All the other eventing horses range in age between 13 and 17. The 17-year-old mare CDC Super Star (Baloubet du Rouet x Faristan), raised in Haras Cedro da Colina, stands out in her international participations under the saddle of Brazilian rider Andre Parro. The pair has been registered with FEI as one-star level since 2013, but has also performed in at several CCI3*-L, CCI3*-S, and CCI2* competitions.

All three horses were raised by Haras Cachoeira, owned by Anna Maria Capella Mategazza. Don Enrico AMM, the most seasoned among them, has taken part in 27 international CDI competitions at one-, two-, and three-star level, including a special qualifier for the Pan-Am Games in Argentina in 2018...
