Both Vladimir Beletsky’s parents were active riders, with his mother in dressage and his father in showjumping, so it seemed a natural progression for Vladimir to take to horseback riding in early life. Today he boasts an impressive record, with a finish of 5th place at the Masterliga Finale in Frankfurt in 2006, and a win at the Sieger Weltcup in Riga (2011), Warschau and Vilnius (2009). He cites competing at the World Cup in Aachen as one of his most memorable career moments and says his horse Resonance is one of the finest in his career. He describes Global Champions Tour as the “best series in the world.”
