Theo was born in the USA, and started riding from a very early age. As a junior rider, Theo won almost every major equitation championship east coast and west. Rosewood Finals, LAHJA Finals, WCE Medal Finals, USEF Regionals Champion, USET Medal Finals, and 6th place in the ASPCA National Medal Finals under Karen Healey's guidance.
One summer during his junior years, he worked for renowned Dutch horseman Reolof Bril in Westendorp, NL. He loved the feeling of the sport in Europe, and made it his goal to bring that experience back to the US.
