Read the latest Lucy Wiegersma news
Born in 1977, Lucy Wiegersma is the only British rider to have won all three national eventing titles – Junior in 1995, Young Rider in 1998 and Senior in 2006.
Having long been a prolific winner of one- and three-day events, Lucy hit the big time when she was second at Badminton in 2008 with Shaabrak, with whom she also won Blair CCI*** in 2004.
At the inaugural Express Eventing International Cup in Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium in December 2008 Lucy came second to Oliver Townsend with Shaabrak, winning £50,000.
Lucy made her British squad debut in September 2009, finishing 13th at the European Championships in Fontainebleau on Woodfalls Inigo Jones.
In 2011 she won Chatsworth CIC*** again with Shaabrak and Barbury CCI** with Wish Upon A Star.
Her Dutch father Hendrik rode at the top level and her mother Pippa was head girl to 1956 British Olympic team gold medallist Bertie Hill.
Lucy – who is based at Warren Farm in Devon – also has an English degree from Exeter University and does some freelance journalism work, including writing for H&H’s sister magazine Eventing.
Warren Farm was less than two miles from a case of equine infectious anaemia (EIA or swamp fever) in September 2010 but fortunately the disease did not spread.
