Name: Sophie Warren
Year started riding: I am pretty sure I have a photo of me sitting on a horse as a toddler and the horse is getting led by our Labrador.
Year started competition: 1999
Saddle/s you ride in:
Tonics Jupiter boots and all my amazing safety equipment (KEP helmets, Helite air vest, Viper body protector)
A bit about your riding career:
I coach riders of all levels and train horses for a living, from breaking in to re-training problem behaviours and producing eventing and dressage horses. Eventing is my true love but I’ve also made a go of a career in FEI dressage with a few State Championships to my name. I’ve competed for Australia as a young rider and had wins and placings up to CCI4* level in eventing and Inter 1 level in dressage.
Most Memorable Moment:
Competing for Australia was definitely a career highlight but probably one of the most special moments was winning both the CCI4*-L and CCN1*-L at Wooroloo International Horse Trials in 2010 aboard Let’s Impress and Statford Mojave respectively. It took me until 2021 to win another long format aboard Hazid Road at CCI2*-L which reminds you how special these moments are!!
