Olympic Silver medalist Lucinda Fredericks joins Team HRP as a sponsored rider.

World Rider

Lucinda and her famous little mare Headley Britannia together won 3 of the world’s total 6 CCI4* FEI events, these being Burghley 2006, Badminton 2007 and Kentucky 2009. Headley Britannia is the only mare to have ever won all three events. Lucinda and the amazing diminutive mare Headley Britannia still hold the record for the best ever finishing penalty score at 4* level of 32.3. She had seven foals by embryo transfer. The first two foals by Jaguar Mail, Britannia’s Mail and Little Britannia were born while both parents were competing at the Beijing Olympics. This is also a first. At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Lucinda won a team silver medal and finished tenth individually before the second show jumping phase.

2002 was the first year Lucinda rode for Australia having changed from representing Great Britain at junior and young rider level. In 2002 the Australian national anthem was played three times for Lucinda due to Lucinda’s wins at Punchestown, Blenheim and the CDI Grand Prix at Hickstead. 2012 was the year Flying finish came to the forefront to take over from Headley Britannia and at only ten years, and in his third season of eventing, he qualified for the Olympics and represented Australia in London.

In March 2013 Lucinda had a serious rotational fall at the first event of the season at Tweseldown resulting in 6 broken ribs, 2 punctured lungs and a smashed collar bone. She was hospitalised for two weeks but was back competing less than three months later at the CICO*** Houghton Hall International, helping Australia take the bronze medal in the nations cup and finishing 12th individually. Three weeks later in June 2013 Lucinda and Flying Finish headed to Luhmuhlen 4* finishing a credible 10th having done an excellent dressage and a solid clear cross country, all be it slower than usual, to gain their qualification for the world equestrian games in Normandy this August 2014. In August 2013 Lucinda won with Flying Finish at the CIC3* Blair Castle Horse Trials, CIC3* resulting in being the current Scottlish Champaign.

Lucinda was the coach to the Hong Kong Team and coached them to win their first bronze medal in 2014 at the Asian Games.

Always out helping and training riders young and old and offering advice and support, Lucinda and her horses have a huge band of loyal followers. Her energy and perfectionism has enabled many riders to achieve beyond their dreams and she is regularly asked to do clinics in the UK, Hong Kong and Europe.

HRP Equestrian adds young rider Will Rawlin to their Sponsored rider team

At the age of 8 Will said he was going to work with horses and has never wavered. Eighteen years on his family are very involved in Will’s business which is a way of life for them all. He was a member of the Fitzwilliam Pony Club and represented them in eventing, triathlon and tetrathlon with success at the Pony Club Championships.

Will and his exceptional 5 year old Ballycoog Breaker Boy (William) have had a very successful 2017 season. Ballycoog Breaker Boy is one of the most consistent 5 year olds and qualified for the KBIS championships in October where after an unlucky pole in the showjumping saw the partnership finish 10th having been 2nd after dressage. Ballycoog Breaker Boy is a top class horse that has the potential to represent Equestrian Team GBR as a 7yr old.

Will’s goals are to be successful in: 

  • The Young Horse Championships 2017/18/19
  • The Calvert Wealth Management Cup 2018/19
  • Bramham U25 CCI*** 2018/19
  • Fairfax Britannia League 2018/19

Will’s ethos in achieving these goals is to train and develop his horses with an individual program of education and competition opportunities to reach their full potential.

4* Australian rider Chris Burton works with Will and has commented “Will not only has a natural talent for our sport, but he also has the hard work ethic and dedication that it takes to make it in the sport of eventing.”

Helen Ross, founder of HRP Equestrian and the inventor of the revolutionary pressure relief WING saddle pads commented, “I was blown away by Adams natural talent and sincere kindness towards all of his horses. I am excited that Adam has experienced the scientific benefit and enhanced performance since using WING saddle pads. Adams has decided all of his horses will use WING saddle pads.

“I have felt a big difference with the HRP WING Saddle Pads with both my horses! My mare can be very sensitive in her lower back as well as in her girth area. I have noticed with the WING Saddle Pads she has been more soft through her back and receptive to coming through. I have noticed similar effects with my gelding who easily tenses up when being ridden. After I started using the WING Saddle Pads he is more receptive to coming through faster and softer than before. I love the thorax pad which helps keep both my mare and gelding happy and more comfortable when doing up the girth. Both my horses feel so much happier and are performing beautifully. I did my first 1.20m show jump class with my mare and we went double clear to then go clear again in the jump off! She felt amazing through the whole round and she used herself way more than she has in the past. I do believe it is because her back isn’t experiencing pressure on her lumbar spine and she feels like she can move properly and comfortably. I love my HRP WING Saddle Pads and I am thrilled with the results! Thank you so much HRP for inventing such an amazing saddle pad that helps my horses not only feel better but also perform better! I recommend them to anyone, see and feel the results for yourself!“
