Take Tsuchiya came to England in 1993, to pursue a riding career. He trained for one year at showjumper Malcolm Pyrah’s (Olympic showjumper, King George V cup winner and World cup final winner on several occaisions) yard in Leceistershire before moving to Tiny Clapham’s yard (Tiny was a member of the silver medal winning British Olympic eventing team in Los Angeles), where he stayed until the Atlanta Olympic Games. Here he met Natalie who he later married in 1998.

Take was a member of the Japanese International Eventing team from 1995 competing in many CCIs. These include the Atlanta Olympic Games where the team finished sixth, and Take recorded one of the fastest x country times of the day, the World Equestrian Games in Rome 1998, the European Championships where the team qualified for the Sydney Olympic Games and of course the Sydney Games.
After the retirement of his Olympic horse, Right on Time, Take rode many young and inexperienced horses for clients enjoying many successes at the lower levels and producing horses of his own to intermediate and advanced levels.
Take produced a talented horse called Jackabee.  Bought in 2005 as a recently backed 5 year old Take competed Jackabee up to CCI 3* level and helped the Japanese team qualify as a team for the London Olympics by beating the Australian team in a championship held at the Blenheim CCI.  Unfortunately Jackabee did not get to compete at the London Games due to sustaining a fractured pedal bone whilst displaying high spirits in the field!

Take no longer competes himself, but he is the official senior team coach for the Japanese eventing team and travels to Japan frequently to hold teaching clinics where he teaches clients of all abilities.

Take’s home and yard are near Stamford in Lincolnshire.
