I am Katie, the founder of Event Rider Fitness. With a strong equestrian background from birth I have had a successful riding career within the eventing and showjumping world as both a competitor & groom. I have competed up to 3* level eventing & was part of the Team GB pony European team winning team silver & placing 6th individually.  With my first hand knowledge & experience I understand the physical & mental demands of high level sport & how to implement your training programme into this.

For as long as I can remember I have been a fitness fanatic, long distance running & hockey teams were my love in my youth, alongside the horses and today I still love to run, having completed London marathon in 2014 & 2018 and Amsterdam Marathon in 2019 with a PB! I love all kinds of resistance & strength training to help my body become stronger & focus on alot of single leg training, I have a very lazy left leg which results in weakness so I focus alot of attention on working individual sides. 

Equestrianism can be a tough sport & I am committed to helping all levels & abilities of riders to improve your fitness levels leading to your results improving & getting those wins! With customised programmes I will help you understand the importance of building your strength, increasing your overall fitness & being the best you can be. I also take on non equestrian clients & will work with you to help you to meet your goals whatever they may be!

I am a firm believer if we treat our horses like athletes then why not ourselves?
