IDCTA Presents: A Live Stream with Jim Wofford

On Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Central time, join Eric Dierks for a live stream interview with Jim Wofford.

Wofford has had a successful riding career, joining the U.S. Eventing Team in 1965 and remaining a member until 1985. During this time, he trained under Bert de Nemethy and Jack LeGoff.

Wofford competed in the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games on his famous horse Kilkenny, winning team silver both times, and was also named to the 1980 Olympic Games but did not compete due to the Olympic Committee’s boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. He was one of 461 athletes to receive a Congressional Gold Medal many years after. He also competed on the U.S. Eventing Team at the 1970 World Championships at Punchestown, Ireland, winning an individual bronze with Kilkenny, and at the 1978 World Championships with Carawich, winning a team bronze.

Wofford’s records also include five wins—each on a different horse—at five U.S. National Championships, a team gold medal at the
1967 Pan American Games, and two wins at the Kentucky Three-Day Event (1981 with Carawich and 1986 with The Optimist — coming out
of retirement to ride the horse for student and fellow Olympian, Karen O’Connor). He also competed very successfully abroad from 1959 –1986. In all, Wofford competed at the Advanced level over 20 years. During this time, he also raced as a steeplechase jockey and fox hunted for over 20 years.

Wofford retired as a competitor in 1986. He continues to ride, along with his wife, two daughters, and three grandsons.
