The former European and world champion tells Catherine Austen about her passion of riding for the British team, why pressure makes her tick and her chance to return to the Olympic fray
Not many riders have won a medal at every championship at which they’ve competed. Zara Tindall has – from individual silver at the 2002 young rider Europeans to team silver at the 2014 World Equestrian Games (WEG). Her six chunks of precious metal also include, unforgettably, her individual victories in the 2005 European Championships and the following year’s WEG.
