Tina has also won two world team golds (1994 on General Jock and 2010 on Miners Frolic) and a world team silver (2014 on home-bred De Novo News). She was also ninth as an individual at the 2018 World Equestrian Games riding Billy The Red.
Tina’s greatest individual accolade to date came when she won individual gold at the 2009 European Championships in Fontainebleau on Miners Frolic. She also led the Brits to team gold on that occasion. Her other European medals are: team gold in 2017 (Billy The Red), team gold in 1999 (The Gangster II), individual bronze in 1997 (General Jock), team gold in 1995 (Midnight Blue) and individual silver in 1993 (Song And Dance Man).
Tina Cook is the daughter of the late Josh Gifford, trainer of 1981 Grand National winner Aldaniti, who passed away in February 2012. She has followed her racing roots by training point-to-pointers and riding in charity races, alongside competing in eventing at the highest level.
Tina has two children, Isabelle – who is already following in her mother’s footsteps by eventing successfully – and Harry. She is a former Horse & Hound columnist.
