Tom Jackson

Young event rider, Tom Jackson has enjoyed an illustrious junior and young rider career.

The Kent-based 22-year-old was junior team gold medalist at the 2012 European Championships.

Tom is a member of the World Class Podium Potential squad.

After three seasons competing, schooling and breaking horses in two international event yards, Tom set up his own event yard in Kent in 2013.

Tom was the under 25 champion in 2014, having won the CCI3* international championships at Bramham. He ended the 2014 season in second place in the Goldman Cup top under 21 UK event riders points table, with Waltham Fiddlers Find who also secured 26th place in the top 100 UK event horse rankings.

In 2015, Tom was sixth in the under-25 CCI3* section at Bramham.

In 2015 Tom was listed as first reserve to represent Great Britain at the senior European Eventing Championships, held at Blair Castle.
