Will Faudree grew up in Midland, TX, on a cattle ranch. He started riding as a young child and first became interested in eventing when he was 12. After graduating from high school, he moved to Phillip Dutton’s True Prospect Farm to train there.
In 1999, Will was faced with a significant concussion after a bad fall. After months of intensive physical therapy, he returned to the sport. In 2002, he was named the United States Eventing Association Young Rider of the Year and earned the Lionel Guerrand-Hermes Trophy for exemplifying the U.S. Equestrian Team’s ideals of sportsmanship and horsemanship.
In 2003, after two years with Phillip Dutton, he started his own business in Southern Pines, NC. That year, he represented the U.S. at the Pan American Games in Santo Domingo. He was named as a reserve to the Olympic Team in 2004. Though a lightening strike and fire destroyed a significant amount of his barn and property while he was in Athens that year, he showed his signature resiliency in moving to his neighbor’s farm next door and continuing his training. In 2006, he competed at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen.
Will moved his business to its current home at Gavilan Farm just outside Souther Pines in 2008. He has since been shortlisted for the 2010 World Equestrian Games and 2012 Olympic Games, and he regularly attends training sessions for the U.S. Equestrian Team.
