Becky Moody: from Pony Club to grand prix
Becky Moody was born in Northern Ireland and lived in Scotland until the age of six, when the family relocated to Gunthwaite, near Sheffield.
Becky was an active member of the Rockwood Harriers branch of the Pony Club, riding on dressage teams for the branch, before winning the pony talent spotting final aged 14 and being selected as reserve for the pony Europeans. She went on to represent Britain at four youth European Championships, at junior and young rider level, winning two bronze medals.
Her international senior career kicked off in 2015, with Carinsio, the Painted Black son who was to partner Becky through small tour and right up to international grand prix. That year, they won the Future Elite title at the Horse of the Year Show and, after making their grand prix debut in 2016, went on to compete on British Nations Cup teams and clock up several grand prix victories.
