Joe Fargis Clinic

One of the most well-known American showjumping legends is Joe Fargis.  Joe first represented the U.S. in 1970 in Lucerne, Switzerland on the winning Nations’ Cup team aboard Bonte II.  However, one of his most famous performances was during the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games riding Touch of Class where he became only the second American show jumper to win an Olympic individual Gold Medal.  During the same Olympic Games, he also lead the U.S. team to the Team Showjumping Gold Medal.  During those Games he also set an Olympic record by jumping 90 out of 91 obstacles clear with Touch of Class.  Then, four years later, he added another Olympic medal to his resume when he rode Mill Pearl to help the U.S. win team silver at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea and finished seventh individually.  His impressive career includes riding on more than 30 Nations’ Cup teams and being a part of the winning teams at New York, Aachen, Washington, Calgary, Rome, and Cannes.
In addition to his many notable Grand Prix wins, Joe won the USA-East World Cup League twice and finished fourth in the 1989 World Cup final in Tampa.  He was the Leading International Rider at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden in 1987.  He also was a member of the Gold Medal team at the 1975 Pan American Games in Mexico City and fourth place team at the 1990 World Championships held in Stockholm, Sweden as part of the initial World Equestrian Games.  Joe is a USHJA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, a recipient of the 2012 USEF Jimmy A. Williams Lifetime Achievement Award, and a beloved clinician and instructor.  Silver Creek International is honored to be hosting Joe Fargis as a clinician an we look forward to this exciting opportunity!
