Living since 10 years in Belgium with his family, British rider Joe Clee has become a regular member of the British showjumping team. He participated in several Nation’s Cup and his performances got him selected for the World Equestrian Games in Normandie with his horse Utamaro d’Ecaussines. In Mechelen, he finished second in the World Cup Grand Prix and was the show’s leading rider. There was a time were Joe Clee was at a low-point, took a break from the sport and considered to stop riding. Ten years on, Clee got his breakthrough – jumped his way into the British team ending up doing the 2014 World Championships on the home-made Utamaro d’Ecaussines. Indeed, Clee’s career has been a bit like playing chutes and ladders; climbing up, sliding down and climbing up again. And yet, he remains one of the best shot when it comes to competiting under the Great-Britain colors as a team. That's why he keeps training young horses and brings them to the top level in perfect conditions, as the prestigious rider he is.
