Although Rozier was on the podium for the 2016 olympics it was not his first, he also competed successfully for the french team at the 1984 Los Angeles and 2000 Sydney Olympics. Philippe was born into a busy horse family but he began riding at age 10 in Bois-le-Roi, France. He was encouraged to try the sport by his father, who was already a successful showjumping competitor.
