The Prado family of Cutler Bay, FL, is proud to announce that their daughter, Sophia Prado, has been selected to represent the United States in the World Cup/Mundial 2024 of Paso Fino Horse. This prestigious event, held once every two years, will take place in Puerto Rico this July.

Sophia’s journey in the world of equestrianism began at the age of four, during the pandemic, as a safe outdoor activity. Since then, her passion and dedication have led to remarkable success in competitions, including several first-place awards. Notably, Sophia recently achieved a third-place finish in April, where she competed in the Performance Sub Jr. category (ages 7-12) as the youngest participant.


As Sophia prepares to represent her country, the Prado family is reaching out to the community for support. Financial contributions will assist with Sophia’s training, travel expenses, and competition horse rental. Donations, no matter the size, will play a vital role in Sophia’s journey to the World Cup.


“We are deeply grateful for any support to help make Sophia’s dream a reality,” said Serina and Manuel Prado, Sophia’s parents. “Together, let’s show the world the spirit and determination of the USA.”
