Born in Venezuela, Pablo Barrios grew up taking riding lessons at a local country club, but gave horses up to pursue a career in architecture. Ten years later, in 1994, an offer to train professionally lured Pablo back to riding, and he’s never regretted that decision. Pablo represented Venezuela in the Beijing Olympics in 2008; the 1998, 2006, 2010 and 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games; the 2011 FEI World Cup Final and the 1983, 2007, 2011 and 2015 Pan-American Games.
Pablo is a three-time winner of the Leading Rider Bonus for the Hagyard Challenge Series, a summer-long series of show-jumping grands prix held at the Kentucky Horse Park.
