Biography

Tad Coffin was the first American to win the individual Olympic Three Day Event title. On his Olympic horse, [Bally-Cor], he had previously won the individual competition at the 1975 Pan American Games and led the U.S. to victory in the team event (with Bruce Davidson and the non-Olympian Beth Perkins).

A descendant of the founder of the W. & J. Sloane furniture store, he is a nephew of the peace activist William Sloane Coffin and a distant cousin to the former United States Secretary of State, Cyrus Vance. His daughter, Corinna, became one of the world's top Spartan Obstacle Course Racers in the early 2010s, placing second at the 2014 World Championships. Coffin now runs a successful saddle-making business.
