Nilson Moreira da Silva has had an incredibly busy summer, flying over to England with the Phoenix Syndicate’s Muggle to train with the Brazilian squad on the advice of team trainer Mark Todd, then flying to Rio as traveling reserve for the Olympic Games, and now he finds himself competing at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials before he returns to his home base in the States next week.

Nilson kindly stopped to chat after his dressage test about his preparation and training with Mark Todd and his thoughts on being at such a prestigious event.

Many thanks to Nilson and wishing him and Muggle the very best of luck for the remainder of the weekend.
