Olivier Robert

Horse fever will triumph!

Native to the Bordeaux region, Olivier began horse riding at around 6 years old. As his parents were not from the equestrian world, he also practised other sports such as football, which he played regularly up to the age of 15, when he had to make a choice between Sunday football matches or riding shows. Horse fever took over him! He then had a decisive meeting with Dominique Bentejac who took him under his wing and trained him. Olivier Robert became his weekend rider and apprentice and would go on to spend two years on the American continent.

On his return to France, not being an instructor at heart, Olivier opened a kitchen store, in Libourne, to live and continue to ride horses as an amateur. A year later, an encounter with the two horses which would take him to the highest level, Gorky du Theillet and Brakar, made him think again about his professional career, and Olivier decided to refocus more intensely on horses. Next, came an encounter with another of the horses in his life, the notorious Inca de l’Oasis, which over six months won the Saint-Lô, Nantes and Lyon Grand Prix competitions in 2005. Olivier Robert then decided to permanently devote himself to this passion and sold his shop.
