One of the youngest riders ever named to an international Team, Mike Huber finished 13th at the 1978 World Championships at only 18 years of age and then went on to ride at the 1980 Olympic Games on one of the youngest horses in the competition, Gold Chip. In 1987, Huber won the individual gold medal at the Pan American Games on Quartermaster, also helping the team secure the gold medal. He also represented the U.S. at the 1990 and 1994 World Equestrian Games.
Not content with just an international riding and coaching career, Huber responded to the call to serve the sport in a governance capacity. In 1989, he was elected to serve on the USEA Board of Governors and became the youngest ever President of the USEA in 1993, a post he held until 1995. Huber continued his dedication to the sport by serving on the USET/USEF Selection Committee twice and chairing the USEF High Performance Committee. He still serves on that committee today and is a long-standing member of the USEF Eventing Technical Committee. Huber is also a man of action, showing his support for the USEA Instructors' Certification Program by becoming one of the first to earn his Level IV certification. He was the coach of the highly successful Area V Junior/Young Rider Team for 18 years and owns and operates Gold Chip Stables in Bartonville, Texas.
