Lucy Cartwright, one of Great Britain’s most successful dressage riders is renowned for her empathetic riding and patient approach. Success came early for Lucy as a child rider in Pony Club and Dressage but her real equestrian career undoubtedly began in earnest at 16 years old when after completion of her GCSE'S she decided to pursue a Dressage career and was offered a job with Olympic Gold Medalist, Carl Hester, where she happily and successfully remained for 6 years. It was with Carl that Lucy’s talent and hard working approach was discovered. During this period Lucy was listed for both the Junior and Young Rider GB Squads, Champion at the Badminton Young Horse Finals riding the now Olympic Gold Medalist Valegro and won the Under 25’s National Championship twice to name just a few successes.
In 2009 Lucy decided it was the time to move on from Carl’s to start her own dressage training business with the aim of training healthy, happy and of-course successful equestrian athletes. Just months after leaving, Lucy was Summer British Dressage National Champion confirming to her that this was the right time to take this big step forward.
Since then Lucy has had many outstanding results including several regional and national titles up to Prix St Georges with several different horses.
