Son of the international rider Philippe Guerdat, who became coach of the Ukrainian, Belgian and then French teams, Steve Guerdat started riding very early, and was quickly taken under the wing of Roger Bourquard. At the age of 14, he joined Beat Mandli's stables and made his first international debut. 

In 2002, he took the big leap and joined Jan Tops' stables in Valkenswaard, winning a bronze medal the following year at the European team championships thanks to Tepic La Silla. 

In 2006, the young man returned to Switzerland but did not take long to rebound thanks to Jalisca Solier and Tresor V. 

In 2012, he won the Olympic title in London with Nino des Buissonnets and in October of the same year rose to first place in the world ranking. 

In 2016, he (finally) won a World Cup final thanks to Corbinian, after finishing second several times. 

In 2018, on Bianca, he was runner-up at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon ahead of his friend Martin Fuchs, son of his coach Thomas Fuchs. 

A true perfectionist and a competitor with real passion for the sport, Steve Guerdat is one of the committed riders who fight to defend the values of the sport off the track, while setting an example on the track.
