Guido took up the sport seriously at age 12 after riding for fun as a small child. He was raised at his family's stables in Lastrup, Germany, so it was natural for him to begin riding.
His family run 'Guido Klatte Horse Transport'. The business was set up by his father Guido Sr., and is based in Lastrup, Germany.
Klatte Sr. trained his son through the early years of his career, and it was just recently that Klatte Jr. moved two hours away from home to train under show jumping legend Marcus Ehning. Klatte lives at Ehning’s stables, and performs all grooming, feeding and riding tasks himself for the six horses under his care.
