Count Clarence von Rosen
1867 - 1955
Hovstallmästare from 1916.
Father of Modern Olympic Equestrian Competition
While equestrian events might never have returned to the modern Olympics without the diligent efforts of many prominent groups and individuals,
perhaps the one person most responsible was Sweden’s Count Clarence von Rosen. Von Rosen was one of the most prominent sportsmen in
Sweden prior to the 1912 games in Stockholm. He had long been associated with horses, having served in the Swedish Cavalry where he was
selected for special training at the famed Spanish Riding School in Vienna. From 1889 through 1907 he was considered the most popular jockey in
the country, winning 44 races in 132 starts.
Not only was Count von Rosen instrumental in re-establishing equestrian events in the Olympics, he was also a participant in the 1912 games,
and served as a member of the international jury for equestrian competition in the 1924, 1932, and 1936. He also served as a member of the
International Olympic Committee, and as honorary chairman of Federation Equestrian International, the world governing body for equestrian
competitions, from 1935 until his death in 1955.
