Endurance World...

In brief: Pablo Llompart

In this edition of our ‘In brief’ feature, we meet another talented Chilean rider: Pablo Llompart from Santiago.

Pablo LlompartWho are you, what’s your age and where are you from?

I’m Pablo Llompart, 20 years of age from Chile. I was born in Santiago but raised outside the city, in the mountains.

When did you start riding?

I started riding when I was two years old together with my dad, but by the next year I was riding by myself.

Does riding run in the family?

My grandpa used to love animals, especially horses. Later my father took up this family tradition and that’s how I started my relationship with horses.

Why horses, and why endurance?

Horses, because since I was born they were in front of me. Every day when I went out on my horse there were more horses, everything was horses around me. At the beginning it was ‘only’ a horse ride with friends and family, but when I found more connection with these animals I started with endurance, a sport that was founded in Chile by my father.

On the other hand, the relationship between horse and rider in this sport is one of the strongest in the equestrian world.

Pablo LlompartWhat achievements and highlights stand out for you?

After some years I started growing as an athlete; I qualified to join the Chilean endurance team, and for this I’m really proud of myself and my father. My first international event was in 2011 in Chile, the Panamerican, where I got the seventh individual place and first as team. The same year I participated in the World Endurance Championship for young riders in Abu Dhabi. We weren’t so lucky there and we couldn’t finish the race – I say “we” because endurance is both horse and rider. Anyway, an unforgettable experience.

After two years, I was representing Chile again in another Panamerican, this time in Uruguay. After a hard effort I qualified to represent Chile in the World Endurance Championship YR at Santo Domingo, Chile, in 2015, where I got the seventh place. That was the best result ever for a Chilean rider and a Chilean horse.

Do you own horses, or do you ride horses belonging to someone else?

Ever since I can remember, I heard my father talking about high endurance performance bloodlines. He was always trying to get the best results and that was the reason why he started breeding his own horses. However, I’ve had the chance to ride horses belonging to other people, among others, Ciro Magnum, the one that gave me the seventh place in Chile WEC 2015.

Do you train the horses?

As I got better results I started training my own horses. My own rules.
