Six times, Eric Lamaze represented his country during World Championships (1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014). During those in 2010, the Canadian came back with a team bronze medal. But it certainly the Olympics in Beijing, in 2008, that will be his greatest memory. Stunning control of his prodigious mount Hickstead, Eric won the individual Olympic title, only two days after winning the team silver medal. World leader in 2011, the Canadian rider abruptly lost his loyal partner Hickstead due to an aortic rupture during a competition in November that same year. Pained, the Canadian thought about retiring from competition until 2014, when he came back to high level by winning the Grand Prix in La Baule with Powerplay and the one in Rome with Zigali, three years after winning them with Hickstead. Since then, Eric has proved again his rider skills and is back in the top 10 thanks his amazing Fine Lady 5, with who he won Bronze Medal in Rio 2016.
