David Sterckx

European Grand Prix rider and trainer David Sterckx directs the San Pascual Sterckx Stables show team as well as offering training to clients who prefer not to show. He continues to compete successfully at the Grand Prix level after moving his world class horses to San Pascual Stables. David’s previous experience includes his competitive training under the direction of world renowned Nelson Pessoa, serving as a member of the Junior National Team of Belgium, Belgian National Champion and former record holder in the prestigious Puissance classes, as well as numerous successes in the Grand Prix rings of Europe.

The show team is comprised of riders of all ages competing at different skill levels and areas of interest. The team competes at many “A” and “AA” rated horse shows in California as well as the Pony Finals in Kentucky. The California show circuit is highly competitive and includes prestigious shows such as Los Angeles Equestrian Centers’ Memorial Day Classic, LA International Jumping Festival, LA National and National Preview shows, Horseshows in the Sun (HITS) in Thermal, Blenheim Equisports Horse Shows at Rancho Mission Viejo, Showpark in San Juan Capistrano and Del Mar.  

Because many of these shows offer world class Grand Prix and World Cup qualifying classes, this provides valuable learning opportunities for the team. They are able to compete against very skilled riders, analyze the techniques of world class riders and personalize the experience through the observation of their trainer’s preparation and competition.
