Welcome to Georgie Spence Eventing
My name is Georgie Spence and I am a full time event rider. As a young child I took part in all pony club activities and mainly concentrated on Show Jumping from the age of 10. I competed on Home Pony International teams in England, Wales and Ireland. I had top 10 placings at Royal International Horse Show (RIHS) and Horse of the Year Show (HOYS). I was also short listed for the Pony European Show Jump Team. I turned to eventing at the age of 15 and was on the Pony European Event squad at the age of 16. I then went on to win a Team Silver medal at the Junior Europeans in 2006, also winning 3 International Three Day Events that year. In 2007, 2008 and 2009 I competed at the Young Rider Europeans, winning two Team Gold medals.
At the age of 19 I was the first teenager in over a decade to complete two 4* events clear XC. I have since gone on to compete at twelve 4* events. And at 20 years old, I was the only rider to have 2 horses clear inside the time at Badminton. Over the last 8 years I have competed at the highest level, completing my 12th clear round at 4* level in 2015 by going double clear at Burghley Horse Trials for the second year running to finish in 12th place on Wii Limbo. It was my best result to date.
I am now establishing a good string of horses, but am always on the look out for new rides to build on and improve my team. The support team I have around me at the moment are fantastic. With first class facilities at home, I have provided my horses with brilliant care and as a team we have been able to produce some fantastic results. I hope you enjoy reading through the website.
