Miguel Alves Horses

Miguel Alves Biography

From a young age I started to ride horses. At age 9 I had my first classes of vaulting.

Took classes with good riders, as Nuno Veloso, Miguel F. Leal (Olympic rider), with João Chuva and more recently with Ivan Camargo for 1 and a half year. I worked in partnership with Francisco Moura where we had a student in my school together.

At age 12 I had my first horse, named Jafu of Caseres with whom I started doing Competitions. Participated in various Championships, Youth and Juniors.

At age 18 I started teaching horseback riding. I later evolved to what I really liked: competition.

In my curriculum got with Carlos Afonso Rodrigues, the title of national champion in 2008 with “Champion”. Rodrigo Carnal and “Periquita” a great 6th place in the Grand Prix Childrens Comporta in 2009. And with Tomás Nunes 4th place in the youth championship in 2010 with “Little Rouge” and 3rd place in Junior with “Vin Rouge” in 2011.

Participation in the National Championship Amateur 2018 with my horse Cockpit II.

At this point I have a group of students that give me great joy, both in classes and in competitions.

I do internships in holiday periods and accept foreign students.
