Bernardo Costa Cabral was born in Lisbon Portugal in 1975. At the age of 9 he started to ride, always with ambition to compete on show jumping. He was a medium rider, with some results on youth categories, but still at young age felt a special attraction for course designing, due much to the influence of the great course designer Bob Ellis, when he started to go and design in Portugal. Bernardo was 14.
Nowadays Bernardo builds in countries such as USA, Dubai, Great Britain, Belgium (2016), Poland, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Spain and Portugal. In 2015 he did over 32 shows as Main Course Designer, 21 of which were outside of Portugal.
For 2016 he has many challanges ahead, being main course designer at CSI 5* Thermal, several CSI Wcup, CSIO Lisbon (POR) and many CSI 4* and CSI 3*, as well as the FEI World Children Challenge, that consists on courses produced by Bernardo, being buildt all over the world, by local Federations.
