H&C met young event rider Charlotte Bacon at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, where we followed her in the CCI3*.

Dream come true

Watch this clip to find out how she did on cross-country day and meet the people helping to make her eventing dreams come true.

Charlotte is just 19 year’s old, but she already has a string of titles to her name, including team bronze at the European Junior Championships in Poland in 2015, team gold at the European Pony Eventing Championships in Italy in 2013 and silver at the Pony Europeans in France in 2012.

One to watch

Charlotte came a very respectable 22nd place at Blenheim out of more than 70 starters, and we think she is one to watch for the future. Remember where you saw her first!

You can watch all the action from Blenheim on H&C as we have an an-hour long highlight show which premieres on 28 September at 9pm. You can also watch online via H&C Play or Amazon Video.
