Charlotte is one of the country’s most promising Event Riders, having represented Great Britain on both Junior and Young Rider teams – most notably winning team gold and finishing 4th individually on Little Beau at Blair Castle in 2007. At 18 she finished 5th in her first CCI*** at Blair, and at 20 completed her first Badminton, marking herself out as a rider to watch for the future.
Having graduated from Edinburgh University in 2011 with a 2:1 in English Literature, Charlotte moved from her native Scotland to Oxfordshire, in order to have all the facilities, events and best possible training at her fingertips.
The move has paid off and Charlotte has been placed consistently, including finishing 5th at Luhmuhlen CCI**** in 2012 and 9th at Blenheim in 2011 with the homebred Out of Africa. Despite being a true British rider Charlotte is keen to remember her Scottish roots, and indeed she has been ranked the No. 1 Scottish Event rider in the FEI World Rankings for the last two years.
Supported by the lottery funded World Class Development programme she now has her eyes firmly set on the 2016 Olympics.
Charlotte also has an expanding role in the media. In 2010 she made her TV debut, co-presenting for the BBC at Blair Castle International Horse Trials, and on a journalistic note she has been a regular correspondent for Horse and Hound and Eventing magazines over the last five years.
If you would like to feel the thrill of being part of the team, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
“We enjoyed some really outstanding riding, even from the first timers who must of been slightly daunted at the size of their first Badminton course. My performance of the day? Charlotte Agnew – just 20 years old. Watch that girl.”
