Imogen Murray

"I'd recommend young riders, starting out as professionals, look at producing their own horses from day one rather than using more schoolmaster type horse. You can build your career with a young horse, whereas with the older ones you can get to a higher level more quickly, but then may have to go back to square one at a later date with a young horse."

About Imogen

A former working and show hunter pony rider Imogen had the taste of the bright lights in the equestrian world at a young age, regularly competing at The Royal International Horse Show and The Horse Of The Year Show, but the eventing bug bit aged 13 and it has been a successful eventing career ever since. As the main jockey for the yard, Imogen has been riding since age 4 and has had many successes along the way. 2011, saw Imogen short listed for the Junior European Event team, however she sadly broke her ankle prior to the final trial. Further short listings followed in 2013 and 2014, this time for the Young Rider European Event Team. The highlight of Imogen's career to date came in 2014, with her first CCI**** completion at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, where Imogen finished as the highest placed first timer. The 2015 and 2016 season further cemented Imogen as an 'International Event Rider', with an ever increasing number of horses to compete and an increasing number of International appearances and results. 2017 got off to a glittering start for Imogen with horses rarely finishing outside of the top 10. The first half of the season saw a magical trip to the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, where Imogen not only produced a double clear with Ivar Gooden, but finished as the highest placed under 25 rider. Following Badminton the call came for Imogen to represent Team GBR at a Senior level at the Nations Cup at Le Pin au Haras where Ivar Gooden produced yet another double clear to lead the team to a Silver medal and finish as the highest place team rider. A second CCI**** of the year came at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, with yet another double clear, this time to finish and incredible 14th, making Imogen and Ivar Gooden the highest climbers after dressage.
