Eighteen-year-old Brian Moggre has taken the show-jumping world by storm. In March of 2019, Brian and his Westphalian gelding MTM Vivre Le Reve, or Erkel, picked up their first international win at the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Ocala. Moggre was just 17 at the time. His World Cup qualifier success continued into the next season, where he and Erkel won yet another qualifier—this time in Lexington at the prestigious National Horse Show. One week later, the pair placed third at the Royal Horse Show in Toronto. In late January, he was awarded the 2020 Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy, presented annually to a young rider in one of the Olympic disciplines who demonstrates the team’s values of sportsmanship, horsemanship and shows great potential. Brian’s success continued in February when he delivered a double-clear performance in his senior Nations Cup debut to lead the U.S. team to a decisive victory in the FEI Jumping Nations Cup Wellington CSIO4*. Brian ended up finishing third in the World Cup Eastern Sub-League rankings, which means he would’ve been realizing his dream of competing in the World Cup Final next month, which of course, has now been cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.In this episode, Brian shares how he deals with pressure, what he thinks makes him a strong competitor, his future plans for his riding career and more.This podcast episode is brought to you by Cosequin® See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
