Emanuel Andrade is one the hottest new talents in the sport of show jumping. Only 17 years of age, the young athlete has already amassed a string of high profile victories stretching from his native Venezuela all the way to North America.

Emanuel first stepped on to the international stage by dominating the high-profile 2012 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. At the end of the 12-week show jumping tournament, Emanuel was selected from thousands of athletes as the Future Champions Leading Junior Jumper Rider. His record was simply indisputable, having won six Championship and 12 Reserve Championship titles.

In 2013, Emanuel didn't simply duplicate his outstanding results, he exceeded them. Returning to Wellington, Emanuel claimed 14 Championship titles and 10 Reserve Championship titles in the Junior Jumper divisions. He also won five $10,000 Low Junior Jumper Classics to easily claim the Low Junior Jumper Circuit Championship Award. In a feat never before accomplished by a teenager, Emanuel was named the Overall Jumper Rider at the 2013 Winter Equestrian Festival while Hollow Creek Farm was crowned Overall Jumper Owner. If that accomplishment was not incredible enough, Emanuel repeated this feat in 2014, making him the back-to-back winner of the Overall Jumper Rider title and Hollow Creek Farm the back-to-back recipient of the Overall Jumper Owner title.

Emanuel has also competed at such major tournaments throughout North America, including such prestigious stops as the Hampton Classic, the Washington International Horse Show, and Canada's famed Spruce Meadows where he added even more championship titles to his ever-growing record. In 2013, Emanuel made his senior team debut riding ZZ Top as a member of Venezuela's Gold Medal team at the Bolivarian Games held in Trujillo, Peru.

A student in his hometown of Caracas, Emanuel divides his time between competing in Venezuela and in the United States. He trains with Angel Karolyi, a member of the Venezuelan gold medal team at the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games at Hollow Creek Farms in Aiken, South Carolina.

Recognizing the importance of giving back, Emanuel is a strong supporter of the Step by Step Foundation, an organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of underprivileged children by creating and supporting health, nutrition, water, education and other programs that substantially impact the human rights and development of children.
