About Tor

Chalermcharn Yotviriyapanit or “Tor”, as called by nickname, is one of the elite dressage riders in Thailand. He started off in Eventing and Show Jumping, but fell in love with Dressage discipline which keeps him for over 20 years in regular training and competition.

 

Tor started riding at the age of 10. At 11 years old, he started training in Australia from Eventing, Jumping to pure Dressage. After Australia, he went on to Switzerland for advanced Dressage training with Swiss rider, Hans Staub, a long-time coach and friend. That intensive training in Switzerland led Tor to make his debut as the Thai National Team for Dressage in 1995 South East Asian Games in Chiang Mai which he won Team Gold for the country. In 1998, Tor left to Denmark to train at BlueHors stable with Danish rider Lars Petersen and once again represented the country and obtained Bronze medal for Team Dressage at 1998 Bangkok Asian Games. Tor went back to train with Hans Staub again in 2001 to prepare for Busan Asain Games 2002 and practiced up to Grand Prix level. In 2007 South East Asian Games, Tor, under Hans Staub's supervision, brought up his new partner to join Thailand National Team and won double Bronze medals in Team and Individual Dressage. 

 

Later in 2014, Tor was in France at Saumur Dressage with Alain Francois, the French Dressage Master. Tor competed at several international events in France and joined Thai National Team for Incheon Asian Games in Korea. From late 2015, Tor moved to new training base near Hamburg, Germany to train with Grand Prix Dressage rider Johanna von Fircks (Former Director of Gestuet Nymphenburg). In 2017, Tor took his new partner Best of Nymphenburg to the first championship together in Kuala Lumpur South East Asian Games 2017, Malaysia where they won Team Silver for Thailand. In August 2018, Tor join the National Team again in the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia with Sea Wachakorn's Jazz Royal 2 and won another Bronze medal in Team Dressage. This is Tor's second Bronze medal in Asian Games after his first Asian Games Bronze in 1998.

 

Back home in Thailand, Tor coaches many young riders to compete in International and local competitions. Tor has obtained various Certificates and graduated the FEI Official Courses in Judging and Coaching. Tor used to work as FEI 2* Dressage Judge and FEI 2* Technical Delegate in Eventing for extensive years. The notable events include working in Eventing competitions i.e. Adelaide CCI 4* in 2010 (TD for 2*), Bromont CCI/CIC 3* in 2012 (Assisted TD), the 2011 South East Asian Games in Indonesia, as well as judging at various National Dressage shows in Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia.

 

After cultivating years of experiences in training and coaching, Tor moved on to run the local club for few years before established his very own riding facility House of Horse Riding Club in the heart of Bangkok in June 2015. The club is specialised in teaching riding fundamental to younger generation and preparing them for the athletic programme. Apart from coaching, Tor owns the social media site for equestrian community called HorseMove Thailand, which is well known among Asia and Southeast Asia region as well as in Europe. The company focuses on the Public Relations services specifically in Equestrian sports, and also provides Videography and Photography Services, Software/Website Solutions & Digital Media for Equestrian-related industry.
