Gemma grew up with horses and has a VERY competitive streak.
Having won the UK under 17 National Dressage title when she was just 8 years old, she has since gone on to represent Team GB in Eventing at Junior, Young Rider and Senior level and has proven herself at each stage.
In 2016, Gemma competed at the Rio Olympics and was part of the Gold medal winning Team at the World Games in Tryon in 2018. She has also represented her country at 2 European Championships in 2015 (Blair) and 2017 (Strzegom).
She has competed numerous times at 5 star level with great success, racking up 8 top 10 placings to date and completing 5 consecutive Badminton’s with Arctic Soul as well as receiving an Armada dish for 5 Badminton completions.
Gemma is also one of only a few to win the ERM Series (2017) and has been U25 National Champion and UK National Champion.
Alongside her great success in Eventing, Gemma is also a keen show jumper and is seen out on the circuit regularly. Recently, she has made the step up to competing at 1.40m level and has competed Internationally with success. Although her true passion still lies with Eventing, her plan is to develop the show jumping and to ultimately be competing at top level in both disciplines.
Gemma is well known and well liked on the circuit and has a rapidly growing following on social media with 53,000 followers on Facebook and 35,000 on Instagram. She uses these platforms to engage with her fans and to support her many sponsors and supporters.
