Biography

André Jousseaume participated in five Olympic Games from 1932-56, winning a medal at every participation but his last one. In individual dressage he won silver in 1948 and bronze in 1952. With the team he was a gold medalist in 1932 and 1948, and won a silver in 1936. In London in 1948 he also competed in eventing, but did not finish. Like all his 1932 teammates, he came from the Riding School of Saumur, which he joined in 1924. Later he was stationed at the Artillery School in Fontainebleau as a riding instructor, where he mainly competed in eventing. A professional officer, Jousseaumé fought in World War I at Verdun. In World War II, as a squadron head he was a German prisoner-of-war in 1940, but was unharmed. After his retirement, Colonel Jousseaume became head of the riding club in Chantilly, where he coached many dressage riders, and published a training manual in 1951.
