Gold Club Ambassadors
The Gold Club is designed for equine and sporting enthusiasts to experience at close quarters the "ups and downs" of Sophie's Paralympic journey and also to leave a lasting template for other Para riders to follow and with it change the funding and engagement model for them.
The Gold Club Ambassadors initiative is Sophie's vehicle to share her and her team's experience with up and coming riders. Part of her Gold Club community, the riders, or Ambassadors, have access to Sophie, her team and the Gold Club members who offer them support and guidance as they progress on their journey and adventure in Para Equestrian.
Our Ambassadors keep the Club informed of their progress by posting updates in the Club's private members' Facebook group.
To date Sophie and her team have helped sourced horses, recommend trainers and delivered mentoring sessions to our Ambassadors.
Join the Gold Club to support Sophie's Legacy and help these young up and coming riders.
Hi I’m Tegan Vincent-Cooke! I’m a Grade 1 Para Dressage Rider, with the goal of competing at the Paralympics! I’m 19 years old and have Cerebral Palsy and Dystonia.
I started riding at the age of 4 and just fell in love with the sport! I’ve been competing in dressage for 11 years and am now taking the next step which is competing in BD Para and eventually Internationals!
As well as being an Equestrian I’m also a motivation speaker & film maker! I have a TedTalk called ‘I see you, can you see me?’ which challenges the stereotypes society has about those with disabilities! I also make videos on YouTube and other platforms sharing my life experiences as a disabled woman!!
