First up on The 2019 Irish Student Riding Super Squad is Charlotte Dixon, a final year Biomedical Science student from Ulster University Coleraine.
What is your proudest equestrian achievement?
My proudest achievement has to be winning my first senior international at Millstreet in 2017. My horse, Zermie, was perfect all week. I could have burst with happiness.
How many years have you been on the #supersquad?
This is my third year on the squad, and I’m still as excited as ever to be selected.
What are you most looking forward to as being part of the squad?
There are lots of new people on the squad this year so I can’t wait to meet everyone and of course getting to compete in lots of different countries, including a SRNC in Ireland which will be so much fun!
Who is your equestrian hero?
That one is a tie between Pippa Funnell and Michael Jung, in my eyes they are the king and queen of eventing.
Are you currently competing, fill us in!
Currently my string of horses are slightly younger that what I normally have so I’m competing at lower levels. But it’s exciting and fun to be producing them myself.
What is your first memory relating to a horse?
My first memory is falling off, A LOT. But when it was off a 11hh pony it was funny, I don’t find it quite so funny anymore!
Where can we find you on social media?
Facebook (of course) and Instagram charlotte_1234
