Laura Collett’s one of the coolest event riders going. She had an awesome 2020, winning her first five-star event at Pau in France, and she was part of the Pony Club, too! We asked her all your burning questions.
What was your first pony like?
I had my first pony, Genie, when I was just two years old. She was very well-behaved all the time I was on the leadrein, but when I wanted to be unclipped she was really naughty! I fell off her quite a lot!
Did you enjoy your Pony Club years?
Yes, I learnt a lot at Pony Club. I was a member from age seven and I had loads of fun at camps and rallies. I was on the showjumping and eventing teams, which was loads of fun and a great way to learn about a team atmosphere.
Did you know?
Laura won the Supreme Pony Championship at HOYS in 2003. She rode a Welsh Section A called Penwayn Ryan.
