The Brazilian Sport Horse is a horse bred for the equestrian sports, especially for show jumping, dressage and eventing.

Uses[edit]

Despite the breed's youth, five Brazilian Sport Horses have competed in the Olympic Games: Aspen, Calei Joter, Cassiana Joter and Adelfos at Atlanta (1996) and Aspen, Calei Joter and Marco Metodo at Sydney (2000).

In 2000, Singular Joter II (full brother of Singular Joter, an approved stallion in Germany) took third place at the World Breeding Championships for Young Horses at Lanaken, Belgium, and Bacchus Tok was second place at the American Championship for Young Horses at Monterrey, Mexico.

Around 50 Brazilian Sport horses are exported every year to the Americas and many European countries.
