Leslie Law, the 2004 Olympic individual three-day eventing gold medalist, will be moving from his home in Great Britain to the United States next month, spending the winter in Florida and then taking up residence somewhere on the East Coast.
Law, 40, became Great Britain\’s first Olympic eventing gold medalist in 32 years, and he plans to continue to ride for the British team.
“I\’m ready for a change. I\’ve been over in the States doing a lot of clinics and teaching recently and really enjoying it,” he told Horse & Hound. “It\’s not a decision I made lightly. I have great owners who are honest and truthful, and I spoke to them and my parents before I made it. They said: \’Only you can make that decision, and you have to decide what\’s best for you.\’ “
He will reportedly be bringing his Olympic partner, Shear L\’Eau, but not Coup De Coeur, on whom he finished third at the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** in April.
