BRIAN MOGGRE

Brian Moggre, a 20-year-old Texan, is considered a rising star in U.S. jumping circles. Moggre started riding at age 2 and never looked back. He shot to the top of the charts in 2019 after winning both the $100,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Ocala CSI3* at Live Oak and the $225,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Lexington CSI4*-W. He had great success with mount MTM Vivre le Reve, a German-bred Westphalian gelding. Last year, he was named the recipient of the prestigious Lionel Guerrand-Hermes Trophy from the United States Equestrian Team, which is presented annually to a junior or young rider on the team who demonstrates the values of sportsmanship and horsemanship. Moggre was part of a team of up-and-coming U.S. athletes who dominated the $150,000 Nations Cup CSIO4* last season at the Winter Equestrian Festival, and he is back in action this season at WEF in Wellington.
