1–2 Mar 2025 228 days to go! #EquineShow

Lyndsey Hampson

I’m a happy hacking, dressage-loving, pole-popping, fun all-round rider – who may occasionally be persuaded to ‘jump’ a mini cross-pole!

Based in North Wales, I am a qualified accountant by trade, which is quite far removed from my equestrian life but sometimes comes with very comparable challenges!

I started riding at the age of 19 after an amazing experience trekking across the Canadian Rockies on holiday – it definitely give me the bug for riding and I bought my first horse shortly after.

I think owning and riding horses is full of small, proud achievements- my proudest moment was riding at the BD Team Quest regional finals with my now retired horse, Splodge.

My other horse Kay is a coloured cob mare who currently takes me hacking for miles in the beautiful Welsh countryside, as well as attending various clinics/events. Our aspiration as a team is to work through the dressage levels to see how far we can get – whilst having lots of fun along the way!
