“Success does not come by itself, you have to work hard and not give up …” Gustavo Mirabal Castro
Discipline, perseverance and perseverance are the keys that have made Gustavo Mirabal a man and an integral athlete.
The origin of the Brand
It is a personal and family seal that has left its mark over time.
And is that his father, Gustavo Mirabal Bustillos, is a lover of horses.
As they say, what is inherited is not stolen.
It is precisely the passion for equestrian sports that has made the surname “Mirabal” the brand within this discipline.
Beyond the influence that his father Gustavo Mirabal Bustillos has had on him, Gustavo Mirabal Castro has distinguished himself from many athletes. Most only compete, but few create their own training center like Gustavo Mirabal did.
Such is the case of Mirabal Castro, who since childhood fell in love with equestrian jumping and has borne many fruits.
Inside and outside of Venezuela, his name and surname are known due to his multiple triumphs.
Venezuela in the world
“My dream is that the sport I love so much transcends the borders of Venezuela and that our national flag was recognized in the world equestrian,” said the athlete in an interview.
As a Venezuelan, what contributions do you consider you have made to the country?
“Bringing Venezuelan equestrian sport to world recognition in competitions or as a sponsor supporting my Grand Prix riders is a way to contribute to the country and to enlarge Venezuela.”
For Mirabal, the fact that the Venezuelan tricolor was waving in the most important competitions in the world, through their victories at amateur level or supporting their riders, somehow “always Venezuela said here i am“.
Why is it said that you are one of the most representative people in the equestrian world?
“The truth is that this is an exaggeration, in which case you could say that I am a person known in the world of equestrian jumping. In Venezuela, I can be one of the most representative people in my sport because of the national and international contribution. “
@MirabalCastro as you can find in your Twitter account started competing since age 10.
The walks to the stables he did with his father, at 9, marked what would be their purpose in life.
From that age he began to participate in amateur competitions which gave him the necessary warm-up to become one of the riders with the best record in that category.
To Gustavo Mirabal Castro, knowing the equestrian sports from the place of the rider allowed him to open his way again.
