Acting news writer

Becky Murray

Becky Murray joined the Horse & Hound news team in July 2018 to cover Rachael Turner’s maternity leave. Becky began freelance writing for H&H in 2016 alongside other equestrian titles (Equilife World Heritage magazine and Equestrian Year magazine) covering a range of topics including interviews with top riders and news stories reporting on welfare issues, safety advice and veterinary studies.

Becky is based in Scotland and learnt to ride at the age of five. She got the showjumping bug with her 13.2hh older pony Phoenix who used to particularly enjoy a Chase-me-Charlie. Becky went on to compete in British Showjumping and riding club activities as a teenager with her pony Sparkle. After losing two horses in 2015 to illness and injury, Becky is now producing two young Irish mares, Ruby and Chloe, and hopes to get back in the showjumping ring in the future. She also has two miniature Shetland sisters, Mootie and Poppet, who keep her on her toes.
