Olivier Robert is born in France in 1976 and started riding at 6 years old near Bordeaux. As his parents were not from the equestrian world, he also practiced other sport such as football that he played until the age of 15 years old. At this time, he had to choose between both sport as he couldn’t play football matches and ride in competition at the same time, he preferred riding. Olivier competed in many Nations Cup and World Cup legs and competed in his first LGCT show in 2016 in Cannes. In 2018, Olivier won the French Championships in Fontainebleau over 47 other competitors.
