Bernardo Cardoso de Resende Alves (born November 20, 1974, Belo Horizonte)[1] is a show jumping rider from Brazil.

Early life

He is the son of João Baptista Ribeiro de Resende Alves and Maria José Cardoso.[1] His interest in the sport of show jumping began at age four on a visit to a farm.[1] He began to learn the sport at this age under the instruction of Joseph Wilson.[1] His first attempts were dramatic as he took many falls, but he was determined and his trainer saw in him a lot of potential.[1] By the age of eight, his determination noticeably paid off, as he won his first title and graduated to the tutelage of Vitor Alves Teixeira.[1] By the age of 16, he was competing in the professional class. In May 2001, he trained for three months at the school of Nelson Pessoa in Belgium.[1] This prepared him for his debut at the CHIO Aachen.[1]
