Ian Stark has countless accolades on his resume, and it’s a privilege for riders to tackle his cross country courses and learn from his years of experience. Ian’s list of accomplishments include four Olympic medals, medals from both WEG and the European Eventing Championships and a Badminton title — to just name a few.
He’s a living legend, and at 61 years of age he is still a prominent face in the sport of eventing. This weekend, he made an appearance in the little white box, riding the CIC3* test ride at Richland Park. And what a treat it was to see him in the saddle performing upper level movements as if he’d never stepped away from competing at the top.
Many, many thanks to RNS Video for providing the video of Ian’s test ride. You can get to know Ian a bit more in this article from our friends at Horse & Hound in honor of his birthday earlier this year. Go Ian!
