Being an equestrian athlete is extremely expensive for Sophie. She relies on staff to look after her horses daily, and has to pay at least a coach and a carer to come with her to competitions. Training and livery costs at least £1,200 per horse per month, even before competitions.

For this reason, it would be impossible for her to do the sport without the help of sponsors and Team Sophie.

Sophie would like to thank the following businesses for their support:

Harry wearing a Weatherbeeta rug in a field Weatherbeeta generously kits Harry out in heavyweight and lightweight rugs, and a quarter sheet for when he works. He enjoys testing out their durability!


Jeremy Rudge saddle with union flag saddle cloth on Harry Having ridden in a Jeremy Rudge saddle at Rio 2016, Sophie was delighted when they gave one to Harry. Their attention to detail is second to none to ensure the perfect fit for both horse and rider.


Harry modelling his Kate Negus bridle Kate Negus has not only supplied Harry with a beautiful bridle, but also adapted looped reins and breastplate. A fine example of British quality.


Sophie modelling jodhpurs with Miss Matahari logoSophie wears pull-up jodhpurs to train as doing up fastenings is difficult due to her disability. However no existing companies made these in white for competition. Miss Matahari, a female sportluxe range, made Sophie bespoke white jodhpurs for competition for 2016.
