The young show jumping Swiss prodigy Bryan Balsiger joined the Longines Family in 2020
The rising star of international show jumping Bryan Balsiger has stood out with his talent since the beginning of his career and has established himself as one of the sport’s best riders. Born into a family of riders who runs an equestrian center in Corcelles (Switzerland) where he grew up, Bryan rapidly sees horse riding as an obvious choice in his life , having taken up the reins for the first time when he was just 5 years old. Having discovered a real source of inspiration from his family, Bryan is developing his career alongside his father, who is also his trainer.
Despite his young age, the talented rider already has an impressive track record of victories. After becoming the European Young Riders champion in 2017 in Samorin (Slovakia), he made his debut in the Elite category in 2018 and claimed victory at the Swiss Championship in Humlikon. He then joined the Swiss team the same year and took part in the Final of the Longines Jumping Nations CupTM in Barcelona. In 2019, with the same team, he won one of the qualifying stages of the series in La Baule, France, before achieving a memorable victory on Clouzot de Lassus at the Longines FEI Jumping World CupTM in Oslo. These excellent results also allowed him to enter the Top 100 best riders of the Longines Rankings.
