Antoine Porte started riding ponies at the age of seven and switched to horses when he was 12. One of his role models in equestrian sport is Marcus Ehning (GER) for his precision and ability to really connect with horses.
His recent equestrian achievements include: fifth place at the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping 2014 in Wellington (USA); 6th at the Americas Championship in Argentina in 2013; top of the Santiago Equestrian Association Rankings in 2012; and, silver medallist at the National Championships in 2010.
Porte has come to the Youth Olympic Games hoping to win a medal but even if he doesn’t, has said he is grateful to have had the chance to take part. He will continue to train for future Championships and events and hopes to compete at a high level for many years to come.
