Biography

Jack Le Goff was the son of a cavalry officer and rode horses from his youth. He started out as a steeplechase jockey in his teens, but when his father died when Le Goff was 17, he joined the military, joining the French riding academy, Cadre Noir. As a rider, he was French eventing champion in 1956 and 1964, representing his nation twice at the Olympics, and winning a team bronze in 1960. After Tokyo he was sent by the French Army to fight in Algeria, but on his return, he was asked by the French Equestrian Federation to coach their eventers. He did that through the 1968 Olympics but then moved to the United States where he coached their eventing teams from 1970 through the 1984 Olympics. In eight international championships, his US teams never failed to win a medal, and earned 18 in all. He then did some part-time coaching with the Canadian teams, and worked as an eventing judge for the FEI for a bit, and then retiring to homes in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and his native France.
