Bruce Goodin

Bruce Goodin

Four-time Olympian Bruce Goodin is one of New Zealand’s most successful sportsmen. His father is the legendary eventing and showjumper David Goodin and the love for horses came early.

Bruce cut his teeth riding in clinics with George Morris when he first started going to New Zealand.  By his own admission, Bruce is a sponge for knowledge and during those formative years of his riding he would watch, watch and watch some more to see how the top pros and trainers were achieving their results.  Bruce made an immediate impact in senior showjumping ranks, winning the Horse of the Year title in 1988 when just 18 years old. 

Eventually Bruce moved to Europe and has enjoyed great success, winning at many prestigious events.  Bruce is now based in Sweden together with his wife Ulrika and daughter Elizabeth. After many years working for great people in different places in Europe they now have their own stable. They are building their business around their passion for the sport.
