eslie Law is a legend in the eventing world. Riding for Great Britain, he amassed an incredible collection of medals including individual gold and team silver at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, team silver at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, team bronze at the 2002 Jerez World Equestrian Games, and team gold at the European Championships in 2001, 2003, and 2005. Leslie eventually ventured out to conquer new territory, moving his operation to the United States where he continued racking up top national and international placings.

However, Leslie’s legacy extends beyond his own competition results as he has largely influenced the future of eventing as a coach and mentor to the next generation. In 2014, Leslie was named the US Equestrian Eventing Emerging Athlete Coach and has spent the last four years imparting riding knowledge and life skills on the up-and-comers of the sport. His mission is not just to help them be world-class riders, but give them tools to be great horsemen and successful businessmen and women.
