Who is Gustavo Mirabal, the international Venezuelan?

One of Gustavo Mirabal’s dreams has been, from a very small, the name of Venezuela in the world. His father smiled to see such great dreams in such a boy. Today, Gustavo Mirabal Bustillos also smiles, but of pride for his son’s achievements.

To achieve the dream of dropping out the name of Venezuela, Gustavo Mirabal was clear that he should stand out in everything he did. This versatile gentleman from a young age was an excellent student and even better athlete. And the love for horses was very small as we discussed a little earlier in this article.

However, being an equestrian-jumping professional riderst was not the first idea that crossed his mind when he dreamed of being international. The world of the equestrian leap is a world dominated by Europeans. However, his love of horses and his father’s experience made him foresee that he would stand out in a related realm.

That’s how the dream of G&C Farm came to mind and an opportunity to become an international Venezuelan. But in parallel, his outstanding performance as legal and financial advisor in Venezuela opened doors elsewhere. First it was in the United States where the Latin American migrant population is quite broad. There between finance and G&C Farm’s unprecedented success began to open doors in other latitudes. It was when Spain opened the doors of Europe and the rest of the world.

As a result, he consolidated his image as a successful man. But I knew that success in sustaining it must be kept in constant motion. That’s how he discovered the United Arab Emirates, and the rest is history.

Maria Carolina Chapellin’s contribution to her dreams.

Without a doubt, Gustavo Mirabal’s life would not be the same without his beloved Maria Carolina Chapellín de Mirabal. A beautiful, off-road woman who not only brought beauty but prodigious intelligence. And behind every decision gustavo Mirabal is also the advice of his wonderful wife. Gustavo Mirabal is a modern man and as such makes the decisions in conjunction with his wife. Gone are those days when the patriarch of the family made the decisions on his own.

No doubt Gustavo Mirabal Castro is a feminist man, in a good way. Gustavo Mirabal respects his wife and all the women in the world. He believes that they are the source of all life and the sensitivity of humanity. But beyond the abstract concepts we may have in her head, Maria Carolilna Mirabal has supported Gustavo in every decision she has made.

This support is not left in mere intentions, but has supported him in the operation of his family office and also at G&C Farm thanks to his knowledge of Business Administration, a career from which he graduated from university.

In addition, one of the great supports is and has been the decision to accompany you wherever you decide to undertake. It’s not easy for a woman to leave her friends, family and home to start from scratch in another country. But Maria Carolina is an adventurous woman like her husband. Every new place is a new adventure.

In addition, they both share a secret passion… The equestrian showjumping.

Undoubtedly one of the things that has most projected them as successful Venezuelans has been G&C Farm. The “Disney equestrian” that was then taken to Spain is certainly a project that requires great passion. But what not everyone knows is that Gustavo and Maria Carolina share their passion for horses. Both have spent much of their time practicing equestrian showjumping in amateur competitions. Thanks to their performance they have been able to show the world the potential of G&C Farm horses.

Simply put, the couple has become the showcase for the world of what G&C Farm can achieve in horse training. And they certainly have done very well. Currently there are a lot of people who have asked him to return G&C Farm but Gustavo and Carolina are in the process of adapting and tuning the operation of their family office in Dubai.

We’ll probably see them return to the jump tracks in a couple of years. In the meantime we will settle for the beautiful memories that left us, in particular his horse G&C Arrayan with Sergio Alvares Moya. A spectacle we should all appreciate.

For each area there are specific rules, regulations and laws that address each of these areas. For this we mention various types of rights:

  • Objective law. It is the linked of norms that form the law.
  • Subjective law. He is the man against the norm.
  • Natural law. It derives from the nature of man.
  • Current Law. It is the one that currently governs and this is positive because it is part of the history of law.
  • Positive Law.

  • It is normative, that is, it takes into account a compendium of valid norms, rules and lines within a categorical society and cultural framework. In this sense, it covers compulsory guidelines for behavior.
  • They are sustained in bilaterality, therefore merits the interaction of two or more people. Since the laws work in a heteronomous way: society assigns the norms to the individuals with whom we must govern. It should be noted that although our points of view differ from these laws, we must comply with them.
  • Also, the Law aspires to comply with the rules or “laws”, because in the event of the opposite being punished with sanctions for those who break the rules.
  • The law operates as a system of rules, which are established in an orderly, merged way, avoiding injustices.

As we can observe compliance with laws, regulations and standards are vital regardless of where we are. Therefore we must be careful with our actions to avoid being penalized for not complying with them.

It is ideal for the professional to take into account their code of ethics and all the laws related to the performance of their duties. This applies to all existing professions. It should be noted that some require more care and commitment than others.

“Set of legal rules and principles that discipline the Public Treasury”


On the other hand, Sáinz de Bujanda defines it as follows:

“Discipline whose purpose is the systematic study of the rules that regulate economic resources, which the State and other public entities can use to fulfill their purposes”


This branch of law is of great importance. It is responsible for addressing macro economies, that is, those that move a country.

Another definition of financial law is as follows:

“… is the set of legal norms that regulate the financial activity of the State and of the other public, territorial and institutional entities, that is, it orders the obtaining of income and the expenses that such subjects allocate to the fulfillment of their purposes”


Financial law covers the processes of regulation of the financial activity of the State.

The activities that financial law is responsible for are: the collection, management and distribution of the financial means necessary for the life of public entities.

A branch of financial law is also called Public Finance Law. This addresses the perception, management and expenditure of the pecuniary resources available to the state. It’s about all of the financial resources for the realization of its purposes.

Without a doubt, we can see the importance of law in economic matters. Well, special laws, regulations, norms, among others, are derived from the law.

The scope of law can be applied to almost any area and finance is one of these.

Gustavo Mirabal, as a lawyer, undoubtedly knows in depth the subject of finance. This  gives him an advantage over other advisers in finance.


Financial Law as a branch of Public Law

There are two types of rules of law mentioned below

  • Rules of Private Law: they regulate the relationships between individuals, whether natural persons or legal entities.
  • Public Law Norms: regulate relationships in which one of the parties is a public entity. The Administration does not usually act as an individual but rather has privileges or prerogatives.

Financial Law is an area of Public Law that organizes the economic resources of the State Treasury.

It also assumes control of the other administrative entities and regulates the procedures for obtaining and receiving income and organizing the expenses. It’s about Public Administrations  incomes and expenses dedicate to their purposes.

Financial Law has great relevance in the economy of a country that is why those who exercise it have great responsibility.

Two important aspects of Financial Law

There are two fundamental elements that are expenses and income. They must be handled with great caution. In addition, its management must be one hundred percent transparent.


Financial Law regulates the different income that accrues and is destined to the coffers of public entities.

  • Tax revenues: Known as taxes, they are the most significant both qualitatively and quantitatively. Today this branch of law is called Financial and Tax Law.
  • Credit income: Are those obtained by a public entity through credit
  • Patrimonial income: The State, due to its condition of property owner, obtains income through its transfer to third parties. All for the satisfaction of the needs of society.


It deals with public expenditures in which it affects the formal procedures. They regulate the allocation, disbursement and control of the use of public resources.

To do this, it takes the following process that covers three moments.

  • The allocation: the authorities program public spending. This forecast is established in a document: the budget, which specifies how much we are going to spend and what we are going to spend it on.
  • Disbursement: It is the spending stage.
  • Control: In this cycle, the control of public funds is executed. That is, the execution of expenditure is inspected. For this reason, the records of the slightest expenses must remain since it can be subjected to an audit.

Who is Gustavo Mirabal as a financial advisor?

Gustavo Mirabal, thanks to his career as an athlete, has focused his efforts on advising this sector. As we have seen in other articles, finance for athletes is a specific branch of finance. That’s because high-performance athletes have high incomes, but an especially short professional life. This may lead them to believe that they can lead a life with a rate of expenditure that cannot be sustained over time, without adequate financial measures.

Gustavo Mirabal Castro, seeing the economic vulnerability of the athletes, decided to help them. He has focused especially on athletes of Latin American origin. But perhaps we should ask ourselves, What are the reasons for the economic vulnerability of high-performance athletes? Let’s go over a little the reasons for this situation, among which are the short professional lives of athletes and an unconventional lifestyle.

Financial plan for a professional athlete

The short professional life of athletes

It is well known that professional athletes have their best time from 20 to 30 years old. In some cases, it can go up to age 35 or 40. However, few sports professionals follow well beyond that age at full capacity. Due to this situation, athletes have a professional life of about 30 years at most.

This implies that the professional athlete reached the age of 40 has two options: look for a normal job or live from what he generated during his professional life. In some prominent cases, professional athletes become coaches or technical directors of the teams. But this is only a small percentage.

We have also seen many athletes end up ruined thanks to their short professional lives. But to understand this situation it is not enough to appeal to his short professional life. Some sports professionals in 2 years earn what a human being earns in a lifetime.

An example of this is Mike Tyson who went on to win over $20 million per fight. That means Mike Tyson won in a fight 10 times more than a person would earn in his entire life earning $2000 a month for 80 years. And yet Mike Tyson was ruined.

So how do you explain that athletes end up ruined?

Example of Athletes Age Distribution in 2013
Example of # Athletes vs Age Distribution in the NFL in 2013

Other keys to the ruin of athletes

We also find that the excessive expenses of athletes and the lack of maturity due to their age are factors that precipitate the ruin of athletes.

Without a doubt, an athlete requires advice in order to secure his future. Gustavo Mirabal knows the keys to provide a quiet future for athletes and focuses on giving them their best.

Thanks to this strategy many of its clients have avoided an embarrassing bankruptcy. But the first step is to understand what are the obstacles that are presented to the athlete and how to overcome them. In that Gustavo Mirabal has become an expert.

Maturity and extravagant or excessive expenses

Athletes reach their professional best when they have not yet reached their psychological maturity. This is because at the age of twenty many young people still do not have great responsibilities. Also, making so much money the feeling is that it’s impossible for it to ever end. This leads to extravagant and excessive expenditure.

Following the example of Mike Tyson, the American boxer bought in 2003 a white gold chain with diamonds for 173mil dollars. This gives an idea of the distortion that can be in the mind of a person with such a huge income.

Some athletes are pressured by the environment to lend money to friends, family and opportunists. Other athletes aware of these seek financial advice from friends or inexperienced people which ends up being a mistake. In some cases they can even get them into legal trouble as happened to Ronaldinho.

Gustavo Mirabal believes that good financial advice can provide quality of life to athletes without sacrificing fun. How does Gustavo Mirabal think it can be possible to secure the future in the present? We’ll find out next.

The keys to the advice to the athletes of Gustavo Mirabal

The first phase for Gustavo Mirabal is to show them that no matter how much money is earned, the money can also be exhausted. Thanks to this, athletes discover within themselves a call to prudence. Already within this state of mind, Gustavo Mirabal invites athletes to choose the lifestyle they would like to lead when they retire from their sporting facet.

With this and your client’s income in mind he prepares a short- and medium-term retirement plan. Gustavo Mirabal considers in his plans that athletes are injured, and this is something that any athlete should put in his financial plan. Then with that in mind you choose a percentage of your income that goes to an investment fund and trusts. This fund is the athlete’s savings and a generator of additional income.

As we all know, over time money loses value. It is necessary that, although substantial savings are made for retirement, that money must also be invested. With this investment the athlete avoids the loss of the value of his money and can also multiply it. It will depend on the expectations where the amount of the investment and the type of investment will be set.

It is certainly a teamwork with the athlete, but the fruits of which are quickly visible. Thanks to this Gustavo Mirabal Castro has guaranteed a quiet retirement to great athletes. A great feat.

Various destinations in the life of Gustavo Mirabal Castro: A citizen of the world

Gustavo Mirabal Castro, a visionary man

Direct contact with the horses caused Gustavo Mirabal to develop great sensitivity and love towards these animals.

In part this influenced so that in his adult stage he was inclined to undertake in the equestrian world.

In this way when I was a little boy, with only 9 years old, I already frequented the racetracks. The activity was done in the company of his father Gustavo Mirabal Bustillos.

It should be noted that the father of this visionary and successful man today was president of the National Racecourse Institute.

Mirabal Bustillos as the owner of the eighties champion horse, Tropigold, exercised great control over his son in the equestrian world.

This somehow forged that desire in Gustavo Mirabal to become a great rider.

In addition, this influenced the venture that later crystallized in distant lands, thus achieving a prestigious farm.

This prominent Venezuelan for being a great visionary today is a great lawyer who is succeeding in other countries. On the other hand, he stands out as an entrepreneur and rider in the discipline of horse riding, jumping obstacles.

Without a doubt he has managed to leave the flag of Venezuela very high. In this sense, he has shone in the equestrian world as well as in entrepreneurship and the exercise of his profession as a lawyer.

On the other hand, his dream of creating the G&C Farm training center in 2009 crystallized.

This equestrian space is a paradise located in the United States. For this reason G&C Farm reached benchmark levels of hipism in the world.

It should be noted that this site is currently inactive.
