Jodie has competed at CCI 5* level, been selected on Nations Cup Teams and long listed for both the European Championships and the World Equestrian Games




Amongst the best

Jodie is ranked in the top 100 best riders in the UK having won all the way up the grades of British Eventing on a number of different horses.

Jodie has ridden at both Badminton and Burghley CCI-L 5* on horses she's produced from the beginning right up through the grades to the top of her sport. She has successfully competed on a number of winning Nations Cup Teams throughout Europe and the US, representing her country on a variety of different horses, notably finishing 3rd at The Plains in Virginia on her own and Nicky Coates' Wise Crack. In 2014, Jodie won the inaugural Britannia League for the highest ranked rider at CCI 4* level. 


Finally, Jodie has been long-listed for both the World Equestrian Games in France in 2014 and the European Championships at Blair in 2015.


The Perfect Setup

Jodie first moved to Nigel and Ann’s base Aston-le-Walls in 2004 where she worked and rode for the Taylors, eventually putting her studies aside, choosing to set up her own yard and concentrate on pursuing a career in Eventing. Nigel himself, a prolific event rider in his time with a wealth of experience at top level, has worked with Jodie over the years not only in training but as a mentor, playing an invaluable role in her career. 

Jodie also has help from Robert Snaddon in the show jumping phase and Andrew Fletcher for dressage, both sharing a passion for their disciplines, always looking to perfect horses and rider with new ideas and meticulous attention to detail. In addition, Jodie plans regular trips to Yorkshire YRC to train with Team GB coach Chris Bartle, a true master of his craft and an inspiration in every way.


Finally, through the World Class Program, Jodie has been incredibly lucky to have the expert advise from a number of specialists in different fields of human and equine sport science and medicine, enabling her to develop a top class support team.

In 2013, Jodie was selected as one of the final 6 from a pool of over 150 talented riders for the Lottery Funded World Class Development Programme
“After such a fantastic 2012 which saw our equestrian athletes perform magnificently in London at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, it is great to start 2013 with the announcement of the Development Programme which identifies our most talented up and coming athletes. The strength in depth across all four disciplines made the selection process very difficult so as a new addition to the Programme I’m sure Jodie will make the most of the help and expertise available to her. All riders on the Programme will have access to the same World Class benefits including; mentoring, coaching, human and equine sports science and medicine. The aim of the Programme is to be a sustainable system that can deliver more medals on the international stage now and in the future.”
