Wellington’s own, Marco Bernal, will compete in the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. Born in Barranquilla, Colombia, Marco moved to Wellington 17 years ago to establish Marco Bernal International Dressage. To this observer, Marco met his goal of great success in earning an honorable name in the world of dressage, being a respected and much-loved member of his community in Wellington, and he is a very devoted husband and father. He has a achieved a balance in life that is quite difficult.

There are simply too many wins to mention from his competition the USDF and FEI rated events held in the Wellington area.

Always present to support Marco, is his lovely wife Charlotte and children, Juanita, Manuela, and Marco Jr., known to family and friends as Junior. Having been at shows since 2008, I have had ample occasion to watch the children grow to adulthood. What wonderful children! The Bernal “children” (now young adults) have always been genuinely polite, always seeking to be helpful, and Junior was a volunteer doing whatever needed to be done at all shows. Often, I asked the children about what they were doing. The answers varied with what was most important activity at the time and riding was not of great importance, except that Junior really enjoyed polo.
I was often struck by the fact that the Bernal children were encouraged to develop their own interests, their own strengths. But it was with great pleasure that I saw the pure joy in Junior’s expression after he rode in his first rated competition.

Junior has been riding dressage for 5 years now and as can been seen is a stunning figure:
