Kitty King was the first equestrian athlete to have represented Great Britain at all levels – Pony, Junior, Young Rider and Senior. Her first call-up was in 1998 at the Pony European eventing Championships.
Kitty has since gone on to impress at senior level, winning many three-day-events and competing in numerous CCI4* events. She represented Great Britain at senior level in 2005 at the European eventing Championships held at Blenheim Palace.
Kitty finished just outside the individual medals in fourth place at the 2015 Longines FEI senior European Eventing Championships at Blair Castle riding Persimmon, owned by Jane and Frank Inns. She was the highest placed British rider and helped the British team to win silver.
Kitty has been selected for the Rio Olympics with Ceylor LAN, owned by Jacqueline Owen, Diana Bown and Samantha Wilson. The pair won Tattersalls CCI3* last year and recently finished fourth in the CIC3* at Bramham.
Kitty is based in Wiltshire with her husband where she has a good string of event horses, which include some very promising youngsters. Her mother Jane was also a three-day-event rider who completed Badminton and Burghley.
