Eric Navet represented France at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics after being partnered with J’t’adore just three months earlier. After that, he and his homebred Quito de Baussy enjoyed several years at the top of the sport. They earned individual and team gold at the 1990 World Equestrian Games, team gold at the 1991 European Championships, team bronze at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and team silver at the 1994 World Equestrian Games. He also earned a team silver medal at the 1998 World Equestrian Games with Atout d’Isigny and team gold and individual silver at the 2002 World Equestrian Games and an appearance at the 2004 Olympics with Dollar du Murier. 

In this episode, Eric shares what it was like growing up as a third-generation horseman on his father’s breeding farm, competing at the 1984 Olympics at age 25, riding legendary horses Gem Twist and Milton at the 1990 World Equestrian Games, moving to California in 2013 to be the personal coach for grand prix rider Karl Cook and more.
