Olivia Loiacono, OKL Eventing, Professional Eventer
San Marcos, CA
Olivia Loiacono began riding at a very young age, where her love for eventing became very clear. At 17, she was given the opportunity to train with Hawley Bennett and competed at the CIC* level. Soon after, Olivia began working and riding under Buck Davidson, where she was able to compete through the advanced level and complete several two-star competitions, including an individual 4th place finish at the North American Young Rider Championships in 2007. Olivia also worked for David and Karen O’Connor, where she continued her equestrian education both in competition and in horsemanship. Olivia successfully competed at the advanced level with top finishes at international events including Fair Hill CCI3*, Jersey Fresh CCI3*, and a 15th place finish at Rolex CCI5* in 2011. Olivia then took up a fantastic opportunity to work for Britain’s top rider, William Fox-Pitt for the year of the London Olympics in 2012. In 2013, Olivia founded OKL Eventing, a training facility out of Far View Farms Equestrian Center, located in San Marcos, California. With OKL Eventing, Olivia is able to bring her years of training, riding and competing all over the world to her clients in the Southern California eventing community.
