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.

He now runs a successful saddle-making business.
