Cassio Rivetti, back competing for Brazil.

After seven years representing the Ukranian flag, Cassio Rivetti has decided to take his Brazilian passport back.

He wrote on his website:

Dear friends and supporters,

"I’m pleased to inform you that I took the decision to represent Brazil again. I’m really happy and excited with this new chapter in my life as a showjumper.

I would like to thank Mr. Onyshchenko and my former teammates for the 8 years that I had the opportunity to represent and accomplish a lot with the Ukrainian team. It was definitively a great experience!

Looking ahead, the Brazilian federation – CBH – invited me to be part of a new project for future competitions. I feel it’s the right moment to return representing my home country. On top, I want to develop some promising young horses and continue collaborating with new owners that are already on my side.

Proud to be back!"
