GB Rider Profile; Ben Maher

I have seen Ben Maher show jumping a number of times at Horse Of The Year Show. When he enters the ring his horses are always working beautifully in an outline and look like they are about to do a dressage test rather than a show jumping course.

I copied this time link of his biggest results from his website. Click here to go to the website.

1997- Wins first European pony team gold
1998- Wins second European pony team gold
2004- Wins young rider European team gold
2005- Wins Hickstead Derby and Speed Derby
2006- Named best up and coming riding by British Showjumping
2008- Represented GB at Beijing Olympics
2009- In team GB at European Championships
2010- Ranked number six in the world
2011- Wins European Team Bronze medal in Madrid

From a young age Ben Maher competed in show jumping, riding a 12.2hh pony in BSJA competitions. He won the Hickstead Derby at the age of 22 years making him the youngest rider to do so for 30 years. 

I am sure Ben Maher will be around in show jumping for a long time to come and will continue to gain great results.

Here is a video I have found on him recently made by the FEI YouTube channel.

I don't own any of these images.

Love Laura
