Biography

When Maurice Buret won the gold medal with the French dressage team in 1948, he was already a well-decorated officer, having been made Knight in the Legion of Honour, and having received the Croix de Guerre with a gilt silver star. The French dressage équipe had originally placed second, but moved up when Sweden was disqualified for having fielded an ordinary solider, which was against regulations.
