Biography

In 1973 Turi defected to Britain whilst touring with the Csikós troupe of Hungarian trick riders. After being granted political asylum, Turi took various jobs around horses but it was not until 1975 and a chance meeting with the businessman, Michael Bullman, that his career took off. Turi rode Bullman’s horses, which include his Olympic mount, Vital, for the rest of his life. He became a regular member of the British team in the mid eighties and won gold in the team event at the 1989 European Championship. Turi also won the British Show Jumping Derby in 1990 and appeared in over 30 Nations cup team for his adopted country. After the political changes in Eastern Europe, Turi returned to the nation of his birth in the late nineties and represented Hungary until his death in a motorcycle accident in 2003.
