Eventing is in Ginny’s blood. She learnt to ride before she could walk and has been part of a Pony Club family from birth, attending the Heythrop Hunt Pony Club events with her brother and sister. Her competitive career started when she was 10 on her talented but rather tricky pony Rosie. This has made Ginny the rider she is today. As a gifted rider, Ginny has had a number of highlights in her career so far and has been shortlisted for various British teams, all on home produced horses.

Ginny’s step up into 3 and 4* eventing was made with Cavort. He was brought on by Ginny from intermediate to their first 4* at the prestigious Badminton Horse Trials. At the age of 21 she was one of Badminton’s youngest riders to ever compete at this level. They had a fantastic clear round cross-country and finished above many of the top Olympic riders.

In the build up to Badminton, as a combination, Ginny and Covort were on the Young Rider British Team in 2007 and in 2008 selected for the final trial. However, it was felt better to head to Blenheim CCI***.

Eventing is a high risk sport and accidents happen. Sadly in 2009 Ginny lost her top horse Cavort in an accident at Gatcombe. This was the lowest point in her career but it has made her a stronger person, and even more determined to succeed at the top level.

Ginny’s ultimate aim is to be part of the Olympics. She has a number of horses that would be capable of this and they are already showing fantastic promise. Divilabit, age 9 is competing at 3* and advanced level despite being very young.

Still so young, Ginny likes to look at the bigger picture to future Olympics and Europeans where she has huge potential to be very successful.
