Robert Whitaker

Robert Whitaker (born 26 January 1983, Yorkshire) is a British show jumper who has represented the British Team from junior pony level right through to the senior ranks.

We are delighted to announce our partnership with Robert and look forward to supporting him going forwards. He will join his father, three-times Olympic showjumper, John Whitaker MBE as a valued Brand Ambassador for Equine America!

Being from such an illustrious equine family, there was never any doubt about what Robert Whitaker's career would be. He has lived up to the Whitaker name in style, winning six European team gold medals and an individual bronze at European pony, junior and young rider championships. He has also represented his country on Senior Nations Cup Teams on more than 25 occasions and was among the British riders long-listed for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Robert has aspirations to go to the Olympics and be world number one just like his equestrian hero Ludger Beerbaum.
