Gustavo Mirabal Castro did …
The “dirty” job of building the project and carrying it out despite the challenges.
The life of this Venezuelan rider passes between stables and papers, because he is also a lawyer.
In his agenda is cleaning, ordering and above all think about how things should be. It is a hard task.
It seems easy the task of creating a farm and training horses and riders but it is not.
A crazy south american.
Along this road of construction are many challenges and struggles, plus the persevering reaches.
One of the hardest things that this rider has faced is the fact of succeeding even if others say NO.
“At the beginning they saw us as some crazy South Americans trying to do something impossible in a world as competitive as the horses,”
Gustavo Mirabal Castro.
In an interview given the athlete said that opening G & C Farm, his equestrian farm, is something extraordinary that opened many doors.
As a lawyer and horseman Mirabal Castro gave a great growth. He connected with other athletes. Triumph.

However, neither envy nor criticism or false accusations have stopped this rider. He did the dirty work of making his wishes come true.
“Like everything in life when you achieve success and do things well, comes criticism, envy, etc.”
Once G & C Farm opens its doors in 2009, the new level for Gustavo Mirabal Castro begins.
Many riders will be trained in that space classified as a “Disney World Equestrian”.
That success raises criticism, envy, to what the Creole rider replied:
“When I listened to criticism I always remembered Sancho’s words when he said: dogs bark and Quixote answered: it will be because we move forward”
The trajectory of Gustavo Mirabal Castro has inspired other riders and is a good legacy for their children.
After asking him about what is the most important thing he wants to convey to his offspring he said:
“My main legacy is that nothing comes of luck, that luck comes when you are looking for the doors to open and from so much searching, trying, working and knowing how to be at the right moment are opened”
For this Venezuelan, who started riding at age 9, “luck is having health, your family is healthy, success is perseverance, work, there is no other way”.
Finally, we found that Gustavo Mirabal Castro did the “dirty” job of paving the way for his generation, to continue the legacy of his parents as a lawyer and to spearhead as an athlete.
