Athlete Biography

Stuart Tinney made his Olympic debut 16 years ago at the Sydney Games with great success. He will compete at his third Games at Rio 2016 in the Eventing section, the riding veteran will compete on the 17-year-old grey gelding Pluto Mio.

The Queenslander was part of the victorious three-day eventing Team at Sydney 2000 with Andrew Hoy, Phillip Dutton and Matt Ryan. Australia has won this event on four occasions, with the last three victories being at successive Olympic Games – Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000. Tinney, on Jeepster, was the only Australian-based member of the team and was the best ranked of all the riders in the event. If it was run under the new format he would have also won the Individual gold.

Four years later in Athens, Tinney placed 38th for the Individual and sixth overall in the Team section.

The four-time World Equestrian Games athlete placed 11th in the 2014 tournament in Normandy, France.

Tinney married his wife Karen in 1993 and together they run a 30-acre horse training centre one hour from the centre of Sydney with their two daughters, Gemma and Jaymee.
