Biography

Raised on the Channel Island of Sark, Carl Hester first competed after taking up a job at the Fortune Centre in Hampshire before he joined Dr Wilfried Bechtolsheimer’s yard as a rider.

Hester now runs his own yard and was named as the BOA Olympic Athlete of the Year for equestrian in 2011 but missed out on Beijing 2008 after injuries to two of his horses.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Hester won gold in Team Dressage with partners Laura Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin.
