Hester is the most successful British dressage rider in history and one of the most revered in the world. A five-time Olympic veteran, he was an integral part of the gold medal-winning British Team that made history at the 2012 London Olympics by clinching the nation's first-ever Olympic medal in dressage. He took to the podium again at the 2016 Rio Olympics, winning a Team silver medal and now has his sights firmly set on the 2020 Games in Tokyo this summer. Last fall he was crowned the British Dressage National Champion for the tenth time.

"The spectators were very welcoming and attentive at my last NEDA Symposium, and it was wonderful to have so many talented horses and riders to work with," said Hester. "I'm really looking forward to returning to New England this year."  more...
