There’s only one Sir Mark Todd! With an incredibly successful eventing career spanning many years, we’d be a little surprised if there’s any equestrian out there that hasn’t heard the name many times before! But did you know… There’s a Mark Todd clothing range and it’s available at Naylors?
Who Is Sir Mark Todd?
Voted Rider of the 20th century by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports!
Name: Sir Mark James Todd
Born: 1 March 1956
Country Represented: New Zealand
Born in Cambridge, New Zealand, Sir Mark Todd has always been passionate about horses! Like many of us, his story started when he joined a local pony club as a young child. Continuing to enjoy competition into his teenage years, he decided he wanted to become a jockey! However, he grew far too tall (6 ft 2 in) to follow his dream! So, he turned to his next love, show jumping.
Fast forward (quite a few years) to 1978, he became part of New Zealand’s first three-day eventing team! Today, Sir Mark Todd has one of the most impressive track records of any athlete, equestrian or otherwise! To name but a few of his achievements he’s got 2 Olympic gold medals, 4 Badminton Horse Trials wins (in 1980, 1994, 1996 and 2011) as well as achieving a record five wins at Burghley Horse Trials (in 1987, 1990, 1991, 1997 and 1999)!
About The Brand
The Mark Todd Collection was founded in the mid-1990’s, in partnership with Bruno Goyens (MD of WEFI) a event rider and business. Back then, WEFI created a range of horse rugs and travel boots, tested by Mark until he was happy they were worthy of his name and reputation! Today, the collection now features a vast range of products for horse and rider but one thing hasn’t changed:
“It’s my name on the products at the end of the day.”
“I use my branded products extensively and WEFI regularly send me samples to use on the yard. I will tell them if there’s something in particular I think we should try.”
