Caroline is an International event rider, representing Team New Zealand. She is based about 4 miles from the Forelock and Load base in Suffolk and we are thrilled to work alongside her. She has been a regular member of Team NZ for the last few years and it is a delight to work with such an experienced rider!
Caroline is best known for partnering her incredible little horse, Lenamore with whom she won Team Bronze at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and won Burghley Horse Trials in 2010, as well as part of Team NZ at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She also won Team Bronze at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. The duo were a familiar sight on the NZ team bringing an amazing amount of trust and flair to the cross country phase at every event. Together they completed 7 Badmintons and 5 Burghley’s.
Now based in Suffolk, her 4* horses Onwards and Upwards, Spice Sensation and Sinatra Frank Baby have seen her competing at the top International events in the UK and Europe this year. With a very consistent 2017 season behind her with a generous taking of wins and top placings there are some serious horses waiting in the wings to move up the levels again. She also has an exciting team of young horses in her yard for the future.
With more than 27 Burghley, Badminton, Pau and Luhmühlen completions under her belt as well as 2 World and Olympic Games Caroline is one of the most experienced and proven female event riders in the sport. She takes huge satisfaction and pride in producing her own young horses up to the top levels, which is why she has produced nearly all of her team horses from the beginning.
2017 has been a great season for Caroline and we are delighted to work with Caroline & her team and support her on her journey.
