GB Rider Profile; Scott Brash

This week I am going to talk about Scott Brash who is a Scottish Show Jumper. Scott is one of our youngest top riders, being born in 1985.

Scott first started riding at the age of 7, his Dad used to be a jockey and bought him a pony one day. His list of achievements on the equestrian Team GB website is very long. To name a few, he has won and come highly placed in a number of 3 star and 4 star classes in 2011. At the start of 2012 he won the $50,000 Wellington Grand Prix riding Intertoy Z, a horse he has ridden for a number of years. He is currently ranked 4th out of Great Britain's Show Jumpers. 

Scott has a number of horses he rides including Intertoy Z (previously mentioned), Bon Ami II, and Sebastian III. Below is a video of an interview with him before a show jumping competition. He also speaks about the Olympics during the interview.

I am sure we will see a lot more of Scott Brash. He even said he has younger brothers and sisters that enjoy Show Jumping so they may be ones to look out for in the future.

Love Laura
