Nilson JumpingNilson brings a wealth of horsemanship and show jumping experience to Sterling Silver Stables. His equestrian career began at age 11, when he started grooming and taking care of over 12 polo ponies a day. By age 14 he had switched to eventing and groomed for the Brazilian National team. After graduating high school, Nilson’s career turned to show jumping. At age 20, he began riding and teaching at a private facility in Atibaia, Brazil. He career has included national show jumping wins as well as work and travel with Alvaro Miranda (Doda) and Athena Onasis—two of the world’s leading show jumping riders.

Nilson’s enthusiasm for the horses is contagious! A trainer at the Sterling Silver Stables since 2011, Nilson is back into eventing, successfully competing at the two-star level with several top placings. At Sterling Silver Stables, Nilson is taking on new students and has started several young horses. His lessons are fun, challenging, and appropriate for all levels.
