Biography

In 1932 Major Hiram Tuttle became the first U.S. rider to win an individual medal in an Olympic dressage event. He also led his team to third place in the team competition but failed to meet with similar success on his second Olympic appearance in 1936. In Berlin he finished 27th out of the 29 competitors in the individual event and the U.S. finished last of the nine entries in the team event. Tuttle, originally a Boston lawyer, was commissioned into the army in 1917 and in 1930 was posted to the Cavalry School at Fort Riley. Tuttle remained there until his retirement in 1944 at which time he held the rank of Colonel. The aptly named Olympic, the horse on which he won his Olympic medal, was bought for the princely sum of $1.
