Colin Syquia, Horse Show Rider and Trainer
With his genuine love for horses, competing, and participating in shows and derbies, professional equestrian and horse dealer Colin Syquia has been able to amass triumph after triumph and come out loving what he does all the more. Having received recognition numerous times for his impeccable skills at horsemanship, Mr. Syquia has managed to remain humble and unaffected by all the accolades that have come his way. Although now based in Wellington, Florida, Mr. Syquia spent his growing up years in New York City and begun riding at Claremont Academy. Having experienced outjumping other riders in competitions or derbies, Mr. Syquia still deeply feels a unique thrill at competing. This is why although he has been around horses for a great part of his life, Colin still finds it impossible to literally hang up the saddle.
