THE JUDGE

A native of Colombia, Cesar Torrente is an international dressage judge and an FEI level dressage competitor. He is the first judge to be promoted through the new FEI educational system to 4*.  Cesar has had the honor of standing on medal podium to receive the team gold medal two times in the Central American Games.

He also won many gold, bronze and silver medals in Bolivarian and Central American and Caribbean Games. He is a corporate and arbitration lawyer by profession and despite traveling the globe to judge worldwide, he maintains the precarious balance between his career and his passion for horses with apparent ease. He is known in the dressage world as a €œrider ™s judgeâ, because he knows what it is like to be in the judges box, as well as the sandbox we call the dressage ring. Best of all, Cesar exudes warmth and is most often found with a smile on his face.
