2008 Olympic gold medallist equestrian Eric Lamaze made his second consecutive appearance at an Olympic Games in 2012 and competed in the jumping event. Lamaze was part of a trio consisting of Jill Henselwood and Ian Millar to finish fifth as a team. Individually, Lamaze placed 29th with his horse Derly Chin de Muze.

It was in his Olympic debut in Beijing where Lamaze won the individual gold riding the great Hickstead and helped Canada capture the team silver. These achievements represent the greatest success of the Canadian equestrian team at the Olympic Games, as of 2012.

Lamaze has represented Canada at five consecutive World Equestrian Games — 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, and 2010 where he earned the individual bronze medal and his mount, Hickstead, was named ‘Best Horse’ after jumping clear rounds with all of his riders in the famous ‘Final Four’.

He has also represented Canada at the past four consecutive Pan American Games including in 1999 where he earned a team bronze and at the 2007 Pan American Games where he won team silver and individual bronze.
