Australian triple Olympic gold medallist Andrew Hoy is one of the most successful eventers of all time, having competed in a total of seven Olympic Games and aiming for an eighth at Rio in 2016.
Other career highlights include blue riband victories at Burghley in 2004 and Badminton two years later. Yet despite competing at the top level for 37 years and having reached virtually every peak there is to climb, his thirst for competition remains unquenched.
Like other members of Team Fairfax, our association with Andrew Hoy came about after Andrew had used the Fairfax Performance Girth and was aware of the benefits to his horses' way of going and he wanted to explore other ways we could help.
Perhaps the most methodical and meticulous rider we have worked with, we knew we could combine our scientific testing methods with the Andrew’s feedback to ensure that the new Andrew Hoy XC Saddle is as good for the rider as we knew it would be for the horse. As Andrew says: “What it gives me is the harmony with my horses that I'm always looking for.”
