Early Life

Karl Cook was born on December 25, 1990, in California, the United States of America. His father is Scott Cook, a billionaire businessman and co-founder of Intuit, which is a business and financial software company. Furthermore, he is one of the directors of eBay and Procter & Gamble. His mother, Signe Ostby, is a businesswoman who is a co-founder of the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Brand and Product Management. She is the owner of a software start-up and marketing strategy consulting practice. Moreover, she was once employed by multinational corporations like Apple RadioShack. He has one brother, David Bryn Cook, and one sister, Annie Laurie Cook. Annie was once a professional horse rider as well.

His mother used to be a professional equestrian rider and had several horses. Having been raised around the animals, Karl has always harbored a deep enthusiasm for them. At the age of eight, he received his first horse. Soon after, he began training under Graeme and Lu Thomas of Willow Tree Farm, spending the next 12 years of his life with them. In 2008, he started off his career as an amateur rider.

Career

During his early years as an equestrian, Karl Cook did not have much success. In fact, in 2012, after he turned 21, he seriously started considering the option of leaving the sport. He participated in the USEF Olympic Selection Trials and performed below expectations. Karl eventually realized that he needed to start over.

Subsequently, he cut his professional ties with the coaches he had known since he was a child and teamed up with French retired athlete Eric Navet. He then relocated to Normandy, France during the summer of 2012 along with his horses. In the beginning, it was a challenge as he did not know French. He persevered and in the end, found success. In 2014, he registered four Grand Prix wins with horses Jonkheer Z and Basimodo.

Besides these, he won the FEI North American Junior Young Rider Championship in 2007 and 2008. In 2016, he finished first in the SmartPak Grand Prix, UltrOz Jumper, and Card Flex Grand Prix.

Aside from being a competitive rider, Karl has also expressed an interest in equine sports medicine research. The owner of a line of riding attire, he has said that he finds a competition more enjoyable when he wears non-traditional clothing.

Relationship with Kaley Cuoco

Karl Cook is currently married to ‘The Big Bang Theory’ actress Kaley Cuoco. In the past, Cuoco had dated co-star Johnny Galecki for two years.

Cuoco married her first husband, professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting, on December 31, 2013, after being in a relationship with him for six months and being engaged to him for three months.
