Carlos Hank Guerreiro is the fourth equestrian obstacle partner of the Richard Mille fake family. He clearly remembered how his love of horse riding began. As a young child, he accompanied his parents to participate in their amateur equestrian competitions in Mexico. Carlos quickly turned from a bystander to a rider, and soon his family pastime became his own hobby.
“When I won my first international competition on the Cannes Global Champions Tour, I realized for the first time that I wanted to give everything I had for the sport. I was only 13 years old at the time, but it made me aware I have the opportunity to do great things in this sport,” recalls Carlos, now 20.
Carlos grew up in Mexico City and moved to California at the age of 10 to continue to improve his skills. In 2016, he won the gold medal at the North American Junior Riders Championship and won the Under-25 Grand Prix in Palm Beach two years later. In 2019, Carlos won the top 10 in both the Brussels Masters 5-star Grand Prix and the Queen Elizabeth II 5-star Grand Prix held in Calgary. Obviously, this young athlete has already done a great job in this sport, as he had expected in Cannes many years ago.
By the age of 18, his age group ranked first in the world, and riders under the age of 25 ranked 13th in the world. Today, Carlos is running between Belgium and Florida, participating in the most prestigious equestrian events on two continents, and winning first place in the five-star Grand Prix is one of Carlos’ unwavering goals.
His life goal-to participate in the Olympics-is also imminent. Although the members of the Mexican team have not yet been confirmed, Carlos dreams of having the opportunity to represent his home country in the Olympics.
“I am very fortunate to be able to represent my country, Mexico, globally, to be a member of the Mexican team and participate in five-star competitions in Europe and the United States. For me, as a part of an individual sport, the biggest feeling is as a team Unite together and represent your country at the highest level,” Carlos said.
His training program usually includes riding six horses a day, 7 days a week, one hour per horse, and regular strength training and mental training are also very important. In all his efforts, he wears his RM 35-01 carbon fiber TPT.
“It has become my lucky charm because it is very light and very suitable for this sport,” the new Richard Mille partner confided.
Just as his parents ignited his passion for equestrian competition, Carlos can thank another family member for inspiring his admiration for Richard Mille watches.
“I got the enthusiasm for them from my grandfather. Not only are these fake watches for sale very beautiful, but the best part is that you can always wear them no matter what sport or activity you are engaged in,” he proved.
