Dani Evans is a 23-year-old British event rider. In 2009 Dani took individual silver at the junior championships in Waregem, Belgium with her ride, Uchin. The pair were also part of the gold medal winning young rider team of 2011 at Blair Castle. A year later she and Raphael II took individual bronze at the young rider championships in Malmö, Sweden.
Dani has been selected to represent Great Britain at the 2015 FEI Longines European Championships at Blair Castle. Here she will ride Luana Edge’s Smart Time. The pair impressed selectors at the CCI3* under 25 class at Bramham Horse Trials earlier this year where they finished in second place. Impressively, Dani also finished third in the same class riding her other top horse, Raphael II.
Now based at her uncle’s yard near Bristol, Dani produces horses from three-year-olds right up to the top level. She previously spent a year working for William and Pippa Funnell at their Billy Stud in order to gain experience.
