New Goals and Initiatives for ABCCH

São Paulo, Brazil – Under the innovative leadership of their new president, Antonio Fortino, ABCCH (the Brazilian Sport Horse Breeders’ Association) is formulating initiatives that will achieve global recognition and increase the international success they have enjoyed to date.

According to Fortino: “We would like to raise awareness among owners and riders, amateur and professional alike, that we are producing quality sport horses in Brazil from the best European bloodlines. Over the years, our breeders have imported stallions and mares that have provided the strong foundation on which we are now building for the future.”

As part of an on-going globalization process, ABCCH breeders will be represented at Florida’s renowned Winter Equestrian Festival that takes place annually at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington. Fortino said, “We are going to show the international community the results of our breeding through the achievements of our most prominent representatives: For example Olympic and Pan-American Games medalists Cassiana (Luiz Felipe Azevedo), Calei Joter (André Johannpeter), Aspen (Alvaro Miranda Neto), Adelfos (competing for Switzerland with Markus Fuchs) and Singular Joter II.”

Singular Joter II finished third in showjumping’s World Breeding Championship for Young Horses as a five-year-old under the saddle of Germany’s Dirk Ahlmann, seventh at the same event two years later with Brazil’s Bernardo Alves, and went on to score Grand Prix wins at CSI level. His greatest achievement, however, was his phenomenal double-clear-round performance in the Nations’ Cup at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, contributing to the team gold medal with Cesar Almeida. For breeding fans, it is also worth mentioning that he is also a full brother to the world-renowned Holsteiner stallion, Singular Joter.

Fortino continued by saying, “We are also keen to highlight our World Cup successes such as Angelina, Jmen, Aspen and, for 2009, Yuri Itapuã, ridden by Vitor Teixeira, who scored a decisive win in the 2008-2009 South American League.” Fifty-one-year-old Teixeira is one of the doyen’s of Brazilian showjumping, and a triple Olympic Games participant, competing with the national team in Los Angeles 1984, Seoul 1988 and Barcelona 1992.

Throughout Europe, Brazilian-bred sport horses have also been achieving important results: Adelfos, a solid contributor to the Swiss national team for many year, Dover (by Folclorico our of Dallas RS, by Remanso) has carried Luciana Diniz to many top placings at events such as CHIO Aachen, CSI5* Valkenswaard, CSI5* Hamburg, and World Cup classes in Vigo, Bordeaux and ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Diniz also celebrated victory in the CSI5* Monte Carlo with the stallion Nightlover, who has also successfully competed under the saddle of Germany’s Otto Becker.

In concluding, Fortino said, “The foals our breeders consistently produce are no different to those born in Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and we have the advantage of abundant land and an excellent climate for breeding and raising modern sport horses cost effectively. In the light of current economic challenges, it makes good sense for buyers to broaden their horizons and look to Brazil to take advantage of our exceptional quality and prices.”

If you would like to meet with a representative of ABCCH, the association’s secretary general Luiz Rocco will be in Wellington from February 25 to March 3, together with Marcos Ribeiro Jr., who will be available from February 25 to March 15 to meet prospective buyers and discuss the advantages of buying Brazilian-bred sport horses.

Founded in July 1977, ABCCH – Associação Brasileira de Criadores do Cavalo de Hipismo – is a full member of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses, bureaucratically represents the breeders of Brazilian-bred sport horses, and maintains the highest levels of professional integrity with regard to its goals and breeding practices.
