Robert Whitaker


Based in Yorkshire, Robert is the son of three-times Olympic showjumper John Whitaker MBE and with countless family members taking part in the sport, there was never any doubt about what Roberts's career would be.

Following in his father's footsteps, Robert has 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.

He is a top producer of young horses, with a show jumping business in the south of England.
