He won a Team Silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio where he also was the trainer of the three other team members. Hester won two FEI World Equestrian Games™ Team Silver medals in 2014 and 2010, as well as several European Championship medals including Team Gold and Individual Silver medals in 2011, Team Silver in 2015 and 2009, and Team Bronze in 2013. more...
