About Oliver Walter

About Oliver

Oliver started riding when he was 13 years old and spent his first few years doing a little bit of everything around the yard. He helped with the CMEC showjumping team by schooling the horses on the flat, and then decided to launch his dressage career in 2009. Oliver bought all his horses as youngsters and trained them to advanced level.

With a team of 5 horses that range from Novice to PSG he has achieved success through his own "blood sweat and tears". Despite having suffered ill health and having to undergo major surgery and ongoing treatment he has not allowed these setbacks to stand in his way. Oliver says 'determination has a lot to do with his success' and he has in his short career been selected for National Training, Young Professionals and has competed in many classes with various combinations at the Regional and Winter Championships.

Oliver has drawn his knowledge and experience from many people that he holds in high regard. He has trained in both the UK and abroad and has had to work to pay for his training. Peiter Verbarkel of www.verbakelhorses.com has been, and still is, a very important mentor for Oliver. He has also supplied all of Oliver's current competition horses.

Oliver moved to France and set up home in July 2013. He has been responsible for sourcing many horses for the Police, as well as working with Essex Police force to provide essential horse training.
