Candice King began her career on the American Grand Prix Association circuit at the age of 19. A few short years later, King competed in her first of 13 Nations Cup competitions aboard her mount Toronto. Her success has continued for nearly two decades.
King was the top placed US rider in the 2001 FEI Show Jumping World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden and was the first US rider since 1968 to win the 2001 Queen Elizabeth II Cup at the Royal Invitational Horse Show (CSIO-Hickstead) in England.
Some of King’s most notable successes are placing first in the six bar competition at CSIO5* Rotterdam in 2004 and placing second in the CSIO5* at Falsterboro, Sweden, where she also took second place in the Derby over riders such as World Cup Champion Rodrigo Pessoa and Olympic Gold Medalist Ulrich Kirchhoff. King placed first through fourth in the Merrill Lynch Cleveland Grand Prix in 2002, something no other AGA rider has ever done. In 2006 with her mount Tarco, King qualified for the short list at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany.
King continued to have success in 2009 with Toronto finishing in the top five in several Grand Prix classes and competing on the team that placed second in the Samsung Super League session in Rome, Italy.
In 2010 King and her partner, Skara Glen’s Davos, represented the United States in the Meydan FEI Nations Cup events held throughout Europe and as part of an all-female US team which placed first and third at CSIO Rotterdam and CHIO Aachen, respectively. 2011, found King and Toronto on top again at the $30,000 Cleveland Grand Prix in Chagrin Valley, OH.
