To celebrate International Women’s Day, we have compiled a list of inspiring equestrian women; our personal favourites, and some of our followers’ suggestions, in no particular order. Have we missed anyone out? Feel free to let us know.
Equestrian sport is one of the few where women and men compete equally and we therefore have a rich history of women who have achieved so much in our sport. There are many others who have in their own way been inspirational, whether it be riding, officiating, volunteering, grooming, running the administration or just making sure their daughters (and sons) can get out there and ride their horses!
Others who our followers have mentioned as being inspirational include Lucinda Green, Vicki Latta, Ginny Holgate, Judith McEwen, Charlotte Dujardin, Donna Edwards-Smith, Kary Robertson, Sally Clark, Trudy Boyce, Linda Jones, Merrain Hain, Vicky Roycroft… and the list goes on!
