Leslie Law

Leslie Law is the Athen's individual Olympic champion and team silver medalist. In the Athens Three Day Event he performed a personal best in the dressage with a score of 43.2 and following an uncomfortable moment at the water jump went onto complete an almost perfect cross country round with only 1.2 time penalties. In the final phase Leslie and team mate Pippa Funnell rode a clear round each in the team show jumping to secure team silver. Law then went on to jump a second clear round for individual honours; this performance, one of only two double clears elevated Law from fifth place to Olympic Champion. Know for his consistency, Law has a string of successes including a team silver in Sydney 2000, European team gold in 2001 and 2003 and World team bronze in 2002. Shear L’Eau who he rode into gold medal position in Athens is full brother to Shear H20 who was his Olympic mount in Sydney 2000. At last year’s European Championships in Ireland he was given the pathfinder’s role in the team for the first time and responded superbly with a faultless performance across country. His performance set up the British team for a successful defense of the European team title and he clinched the team gold with just one fence down in the final show jumping phase, finishing in fourth place individually. Leslie started riding at the age of 10 to compete with his brother Graham, who is also a successful event rider. He contradicts the popular image that event riders come from wealthy, privileged backgrounds, having grown up in a council house.

Since arriving in the United States in 2006 Leslie has racked up a huge list of accomplishments including: three time American Advanced Champion, Young Event Horse Champion and Reserve Champion, multiple CCI *** and CIC *** wins and top placings, and multiple CCI ** and CIC ** wins and top placings.  He has found horses for and coached some of America's top young riders and has had many adult amateurs in the top placings at the American Eventing Championships.
