Throughout his long career, John has won at least 14 team medals at Olympic, World or European Championship level, as well as his countless individual victories, including winning the Hickstead Derby 4 times. He has won every competition possible and would have to be recognised as one of the most successful showjumpers of all time.
John is a regular contender in the Longines Global Champions Tour, and a major crowd-attraction whenever he competes on home turf – which isn’t that often.
John also has his own range of equestrian products and clothing, John Whitaker International. John and his brother Michael have also collaborated with Keyflow® to bring you their own range of horse feeds, Whitaker Bros Jump feeds.
