Sarah is a grassroots rider with a passion for writing. Having grown up with horses she was a member of the Beaufort Hunt Pony Club riding alongside international event riders and has represented her riding club at the British Riding Club National Championships. She is regularly out competing her own horse Baby Daly and supporting her mum, who still competes her horse Kingsheath Mastermind in her 70s. Away from horses, Sarah is a full time PR and Marketing professional, specialising in the events industry, with a particular focus on social media. As part of the Eventing Worldwide Team, Sarah produces event reports from around the country and gets up close and personal with event riders to bring you the latest news first.
Natalie grew up in Devon and has had horses for as long as she can remember. She has a passion for ex-racehorses and has owned her current ex-pointer Comet for seven years. After leaving university and realising she wasn’t good enough to be a professional event rider Natalie swapped the green fields of Devon for the busy streets of London to work full time in TV publicity. After a week working in the crazy world of showbiz Natalie enjoys nothing more than getting out of the city and reporting for Eventing Worldwide
I’m based in North Wales and have 2 horses, an Intermediate event mare called Fiderpoppy and an ex-eventer whom I compete at dressage up to Advanced Medium level called Zhong Rong Beijing AKA Prince Charles! I have been on the Wales and Borders CCIJ* team and I do a lot with the Welsh BYRDS, having competed at the BYRDS Home Internationals on the team. I have also competed at Badminton at the Mitsubishi Motors Cup Championships. My aim for this year is to make the step up to Intermediate and just have a whole load of fun out at events!
I’ve also worked as a rider alongside Arthur Duffort with Belton Sport Horses over the summers and participate in the GB Student trainings and selections.
Bryony is looking forward to the 2017 eventing season, which will be the first full season she has competed since becoming a mum in 2016. Based in Buckinghamshire, Bryony splits her time between showjumping, eventing, being a mum and training to be an animal physiotherapist. With her showjumping mare ‘Moth’ heading to the Blue Chip Championships at Hartpury in April and her relatively new event horse ‘Darius of Oldfields’ starting his first full season at BE100 level it is looking to be an exciting start to the year. Bryony is looking forward to getting out to competitions and reporting from her local events for Eventing Worldwide.
Laura has ridden all her life and loves following the eventing scene. She’s done lots with the Pony Club and Riding Club in her time, from one day eventing to tetrathlon, but an accident prone ex racehorse (Scarlet) has meant that they have done very little of anything for the last couple of years. Laura is really excited to start reporting on events with Eventing Worldwide this year.
My name is Eryn and I am a junior event rider based in the Scottish Borders. I have evented for six years now, the highlight of course being representing Scotland at the National U18 championships at Frickley Park last year. I receive my greatest enjoyment in eventing by producing my own horses from youngsters and feeling them develop underneath me – something that my parents have always encouraged me to do. I also do my best to combine this with grooming for Emily Galbraith, something I have done since being 13 years old. The Galbraiths have given me invaluable experience and exposed me to the most exciting international stages and classy horses, from which I have gained fruitful insight and education. In the winter I can be found often indulging in a Saturday morning following my local pack of hounds; the Duke of Buccleuch’s Foxhounds.
When out the saddle, I am busy concentrating on my higher exams which I am sitting this May. I look forward immensely to striking the balance of competing my own horses, grooming for Emily, school work and reporting for Eventing Worldwide this season. I feel extremely honoured for this new opportunity and I look forward to furthering my equestrian knowledge through my involvement with the reporting work this season and beyond.
Hi Im Rika and I have just finished my degree in Journalism at the University of Portsmouth and now work full time as an event groom for Kirsty Johnston. I have been an event groom and eventing supporter alongside my three years at uni, and couldn’t think of myself doing anything that didn’t involve eventing in some way, whether it be writing or working with event horses!
