At a young age, he started horse-riding at Istanbul Equestrian Club where he got involved in show jumping and was a member of the gold-medal winning Turkish young rider team at the Balkan Championships in 1992. Nursing an ever-increasing love and interest for the art of dressage in the meantime, Dr. Ersoy went on to become the National Dressage Champion in the Senior Riders Category in 1994.

After completing his undergraduate study at Istanbul University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2000, he moved to Munich to start his doctorate in the fall of 2001. There, he started his academic studies as a doctoral student of Prof. Dr. Hartmut Gerhards, head of department at Equine Hospital of Ludwig Maximillian University (LMU) Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and completed his doctorate in 2005.
