Charlotte Bacon

Charlotte competes and trains from her family yard in Oxfordshire. With a grounding in the hunting fields of the Cotswolds Charlotte knew from an early age that her ambition was to compete internationally in eventing. She gained valuable experience during the 2015 season when she was based with Irish Olympian Aoife Clark and has also spent time in Germany with Dirk Schrade. In 2012 she became the only U16 rider to qualify and compete at National Championship level in all three disciplines and in 2010 became the youngest ever rider to compete at the National Pony Club Championships in all three disciplines.

Stable Star - Last Touch

Known at home as Jack, he’s my stable star because he’s my top horse at 3* level. Jack is not the easiest to ride, particularly on the flat, but he’s awesome cross country. I’ve ridden him for 3 years now and he’s competed at Blenheim, Boekelo and Bramham. We will hopefully be going to Burghley at the end of the year! Photo credit: Charlotte Colley Photography
