Armand Leone is the oldest brother on “Team Leone,” made up of fellow international talents Peter and Mark. While Armand still rides and trains at his family’s Ri-Arm Farm in Oakland, NJ, he also unveiled Leone Equestrian Law in 2014. It was a venture founded on expertise, passion, and necessity. An attorney by trade with a long family history in horse sport, Leone realized that he had an opportunity to use his talents in the courtroom and law library alongside his dedication to the advancement of show jumping, in order to help create a stronger industry.
With a show jumping background, Armand was a contender for the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. Selected as an alternate for the show jumping team, he unfortunately did not attend as that was the year the Games were boycotted by the U.S. Professionally, Armand’s office wall represents the creme de la creme of respected American colleges. He is a graduate of the Columbia Business School and the Columbia University School of Law, but he also has his M.D. from New York Medical College and BA from the University of Virginia.
