Born in Hampshire, Lucinda Green began riding when she was just four years old but didn’t own her own horse until the age of 15, when she was given Be Fair for her birthday.

Lucinda and Be Fair worked their way up in the eventing world, with him being sent away for training while she was at school. She owned Be Fair for seven years before taking him to the 1973 Olympics and winning Badminton.

This was only the beginning of Lucinda‘s success, as she went on to claim a number of gold and silver medals and two European Championships.

In 1977 Lucinda scored a hat trick, coming first at Badminton, Burghley and the European Championships. She is the only rider to have won Badminton six times, on six different horses: Be Fair (1973), Wideawake (1976), George (1977), Killaire (1979), Regal Realm (1983) and Beagle Bay (1984).

Lucinda has won the Tony Collins Trophy, awarded to the rider with the most British Eventing points in an eventing season, a record seven times and in 2008 won the outstanding contribution to equestrianism award.

While she still competes, Lucinda is now also known as an equestrian journalist, team selector, commentator and trainer.

She has two children – Fred, born May 1985, and Lissa, born February 1989.
