  • Chris Burton is a top level Event Rider. Currently based in the UK, Chris hails from a grain farm in Queensland and has ridden all of his life. Having competed at two Olympic Games for Australia, he was recently a member of the bronze medal winning team at the Rio Olympics. Chris has had many successes at the top level, including winning Adelaide 4* in 2013 and Burghley 4* in 2016 and recently the 3* Nations Cup. Chris grew up on a grain farm near Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia It was here he begun his riding career on a naughty pony called Clancy he got for his 3rd birthday. When he was 6 Chris was given a pony called Spice who was to really kick-start his eventing career. While his older brother, Karl, now a professional campdrafting and cutting rider, was out helping muster cattle, Chris was busy building jumps using bricks and broomsticks for Spice to jump. In 1994 Chris did his first EFA event on Just Joshin. Shortly after Chris started riding his first real super star, Deo Juvante . ‘Deo’ and Chris rose through to 4**** and from here Chris has not looked back.
