Welcome to Nicola
Nicola was an international event rider and part of the Team GB squad. She’s a London 2012 Olympic Silver Medallist, and was European Individual Champion 2021 – 2023. She has also been a member of several Gold Medal winning World and European teams. She’s based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
Following her career-ending fall at Badminton in 2022, Nicola sustained multiple spinal fractures as well as a condition called “Central Cord Syndrome” that has resulted in the loss of sensation and movement in her extremities. She has now embarked on a successful new career of coaching and mentoring eventers and their horses.
Coaching and Mentoring
I am excited about the next phase in my life and determined to stay positive going forward. As a British Equestrian Accredited Coach UKCC Level 3 Eventing and Wesko Equestrian Foundation Coach I look forward to working with riders in trying to achieve their dreams and goals.
Looking for a fully functional eventing yard in Yorkshire to act as a base on either a short, medium or long-term basis, then have look at what we can offer you.
British Eventing Support Trust
“The charity was launched in September 2021 to provide financial and practical support for riders who are dealing with physical injuries or mental health issues, as well as promoting eventing safety through new research projects. Without the help of this charity I really do not know what we would have done following my fall at Badminton.”
