MM Training Course Offered in Brazil

This letter is a formal invitation to participate in an intensive training trip to Centro de treinamento Fernando Melo, located in Pedro Leopoldo, Minas Gerais, Brasil, in November 2023.

This course is a collaboration between ABCCMM and USMMA with the common goal of promoting and educating future trainers, breeders, riders and horse owners.

It has been a long-term goal from both organizations to work together. We believe this is a substantial step from ABCCMM to reach out to us and offer to sponsor the training course in Minas Gerais. We would like to take full advantage of this unique opportunity and try to promote and encourage interested riders/trainers to attend.

The course will consist of one week of intensive training at the Centro de Treinamento (expect to work and ride about 8 hours per day). The next 3 days will be at Morada Nova Inhauma, Minas Gerais learning and observing at this Mangalarga Marchador Ranch. The ranch is owned by Cristiana Gutierres, the ABCCMM Presidente and it is located about 40 miles from the training center.

The trip will end with a trip to the CBM – Copa Brasileira de Marcha em Campos dos Goitacases, Rio de Janeiro.

ABCCMM will sponsor the cost of the course, however participants will be responsible for travel arrangements to Brasil and the cost of lodging and food provided at both locations. ABCCMM will also facilitate a translator for the participants time spent in Brasil.

USMMA will work on helping participants during this process of planing and potential sponsorship.

Spots are limited! Please let us know by responding to this email by August 15th, 2023. 

We will be asking each interested member for more information about their qualifications and availability. We will also provide each person more information and details as they become available to us. It is a fantastic opportunity!
