Located in Weatherford, Texas, Fazenda Barrinha is already becoming known as a center of reference for breeding, training, and in show results with top pedigree cutting horses.
The task of selection and preparation depends on the support of competent professionals, like trainer John Mitchell, and is well represented in the show pen by Armando Costa Neto, "Armandinho", that, since his arrival in the USA, has been showing great talent and a constant evolution in the show pen and has accumulated over $1.1 million in NCHA Earnings.
For the second year running, Armandinho has been named the top NON PRO of the last 5 years in the Equistat Inside Track. To crown his historic trajetory, Armandinho is now the first Brazilian to enter into the select group of competitors in the NCHA Hall of Fame. A great achievement, and a reason not just for the "Barrinha family", but for all brazilian cutters, to be proud.
