SERGIO ALVAREZ MOYA STARTED 2017 IN A VERY A BRILLIANT WAY!
Spanish Olympian Sergio Alvarez Moya climbs the world ranking’s.
Spanish Olympian Sergio Alvarez Moya competed in the FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final with top mount Arrayan obtaining a very good 5° place. Last Saturday March 25 he was the big winner in the $500,000 Rolex Grand Prix CSI 5* riding Charmeur at the 2017 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, Florida. “For me this is one of the best shows in the world”, enthused Moya. In fact, most of the best and most competitive riders in the world are in Welligton every year. Charmeur,10-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, is under the saddle of Moya since he was six years old: “The horse doesn’t have so much experience at this level. He just got better and better here at this show. I think from here on we can go anywhere in the world”, commented Moya.
The consistent results Moya is obtaining in this first part of the season put him into the top 30 in the world ranking’s for the first time since 2015.
Born in 1985, Moya is a pillar of the jumping Spanish team. He started to ride as a child and he lead an excellent junior career culminated with the victory of the European Championship in 2001 riding Flash de la Ramee. In 2003 he moved to Belgium to deepen his tecnique and he stayed for six years before coming back to Spain and settled permanently with his brother in La Coruna.
Pupil of one of the most important trainer, Victor Aguero, Moya has rapidly climbed the jumping ranking, also thanks to his top horse Action Breaker, which won the Grand Prix of Aachen in 2010 and took part in the World Championships in Caen 2014 and in Lexington 2010. In the recent years his name is related to Carlo, the formidable gray, before under the saddle of British champion Nick Skelton, one of the 'myths' of Moya.
With Moya, Carlo took part in the European Championships in Aachen 2015, obtaining an excellent sixth place in the individual, and Herning in 2013. Until today, Moya took part in three World Championships, eight European Championships, four Fei World Cup Finals. He took part in Olympic Games Rio 2016 with Carlo.
