Synopsis

Trailblazers is the story of the first Australians to compete at an international level in FEI equestrian events. The six men selected for the 1956 Olympic Games had just 14 months to learn it all on the English Show circuit. They had never competed in a three day event, didn't understand dressage and had little experience of Olympic-style showjumping. At the Olympics they competed in one of the most difficult crosscountry courses in history and came close to winning bronze. They blazed a trail for the Rome Olympic team and set the course for the future of FEI equestrian events in Australia. Wyatt Thompson is the last surviving member of the first Olympic equestrians.
