Profiles

  • Sergio Alvarez Moya
  • Competing for: Spain
  • From: La Coruña
  • Age: 32

Sergio began horseback riding with his brothers at age seven because his uncle was interested in horses. As a junior he won the European Championships (2001). In 2003, he decided that to further progress in his riding career he needed to move to Belgium. For six years he developed himself as a respected rider before returning to Spain and basing himself with his brother in La Coruña. 

Sergio's heroes are Nick Skelton and John Whitaker, and the most influential person in his career is legendary coach Victor Aguero. One of his most memorable career moments is coming 3rd at the Grand Prix in Aachen in 2010 with Action Breaker, one of the finest horses he has worked with.

The Spanish rider considers GCT to be a ‘fantastic event’. His advice to other riders is to, ‘keep riding and learning as much as you can from everyone. Ride your best, and enjoy yourself’.
