A native of Medfield, Massachusetts who started in the pony ranks, Peter Wylde worked his way up as a junior rider to win the New England Horseman’s Council’s equitation final in 1981, and earn the United States' highest junior honor when he won the Rolex- Maclay National Equitation Championship at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden in 1982.
After completing his undergraduate degree at Tufts University, Wylde started training and competing as a professional in 1988. Wylde went on to win the President's Cup at the Washington International Horse Show in October 1996. He was chosen to represent the United States at the 1997 and 1999 World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden. In 1997, he won a Grand Prix during the Winter Equestrian Festival, and again in 1998 when he won the $50,000 FedEx Gold Coast World Cup Grand Prix on Macanudo Very Well St. George. In all, Wylde had three Grand Prix wins in 1998 and he placed second in the Cosequin I Love New York Grand Prix at Lake Placid, a USET World Equestrian Games Selection Trial.
In 1999, Wylde was Co-Champion of the $100,000 Rolex/USET Show Jumping Championship at the Bayer/USET Festival of Champions just before earning team and individual Silver medals at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada with Macanudo DeNiro. That year he was named the United States Olympic Committee's Male Equestrian of the Year.
After relocating to Europe full time, he went on to win the World Cup Grand Prix in Mechelen, Belgium in 2000, the 2001 World Cup Grand Prix in Dortmund, Germany and in 2001, tied for sixth place in the World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In 2002, Wylde and Fein Cera earned a place on the United States Equestrian Team for the Show Jumping World Championships at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain, where he and Fein Cera won the individual bronze medal, and Fein Cera earned the coveted "Best Horse" honor. The pair was again chosen to represent the United States at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, where they helped the U.S. to win the team Gold along with teammates McLain Ward, Chris Kappler and Beezie Madden.
Wylde's riding style has earned leading rider titles from some of the world's finest horse shows, including the Washington International Horse Show, the CSI-W Geneva in 2003, and the CSN Manheim in 2008. He has won the Style of Riding Award at the CHIO Aachen, Germany, the CSI Vienna, Austria; the American Gold Cup in Cleveland, Ohio; and three times at the Hampton Classic in Bridgehampton, New York.
He is passionate about teaching and has enjoyed the success of many students including Sheila Burke who won the 2004 CSIO Grand Prix of Dublin and 5 time Olympian Taizo Sugitani who placed 10th at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky and represented Japan at the 2012 London Olympics.
Wylde is equally enthusiastic about his involvement in the USHJA's Emerging Athletes Program (EAP). For more than five years he has served the program in various roles including clinician, course designer and finals judge for the burgeoning program, which seeks to identify and cultivate equestrian talent and reward horsemanship skills to aspiring young professionals. He is now the Head Clinician and Vice President of the program and is looking forward to its continued success.
Together with his partner Eduard Mullenders, Wylde runs Mullenders and Wylde Horses LLC, a Millbrook, NY-based training operation for top level horses and riders with a concentration on providing the highest level of care and training for the horse.
