Other information Chester Weber, the United States’ most celebrated combined driver, has earned numerous accolades and prestigious recognition for his accomplishments throughout the world. The Ocala, Florida native was raised on his family’s Live Oak Plantation, and started driving competitively at a young age, with mentoring from Jimmy Fairclough. When he was 18 years old, Chester was the youngest driver to be named to the United States Equestrian Team for the World Pairs Driving Championships in Beesd, the Netherlands. He earned 12 consecutive wins after advancing to the Four-in-Hand division in 1999. Then in 2008, Chester made history by becoming the first American to win an Individual Silver Medal in the Four-in-Hand FEI World Driving Championships. He won England’s Royal Windsor CAI3* two consecutive years, and receiving a personal congratulations from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Chester has three World Equestrian Games silver medals, 13 U.S. Equestrian Federation Four-in-Hand National Champion titles, and the number one slot on the FEI world rankings.

Chester is not only committed to promoting combined driving, but also is an avid supporter of all equestrian sports as he serves on the USET Board of Trustees. Chester also serves on the USEF High Performance Driving Committee, the National Driving Committee, the Safety Committee, the Hearing Committee, the Licensed Officials Committee and the Driving Technical Committee. He is also active in the organization of Live Oak International, which showcases FEI level combined driving and showjumping at his and the Weber family’s 5,000-acre thoroughbred breeding farm Live Oak Plantation. Chester has twice been named as a USEF Equestrian of Honor, but he always shares the limelight with his horses, most famously his horse, Jamaica, who was named the 2008 USEF Horse of the Year and in 2013 was inducted into the EQUUS Foundation Hall of Fame.
