Polly Jackson's Profile
Polly Jackson is an established star of British Eventing and competed for Great Britain at Senior level in the 2005 European Championships at Blenheim.
Much of the past two years has been taken up by buying and breeding young performance horses, and developing them into potential stars of the future. Polly has competition horses at all levels from Intro through to her four-star horses, and there have been some excellent additions to her string over the last couple of years.
Polly had great success as a junior, winning the British National Junior Championships and representing her country twice at the European Championships.
At eighteen she joined the senior/ young rider circuit with her own horse Limestone rise. Her senior ambitions led to her declining a place in the national Young Rider team, allowing her to concentrate on qualifying for 4 star level and achieving senior team selection. The strategy worked, Polly was placed 25th at the Blenheim Palace International 3 star event in 2000, qualifying her for Burghley 2001. At her 1st four star, Polly and Limestone Rise completed, achieving 40th place in a world class international field. 3 days later she travelled to France to win the Vittel International Three Day Event CCI** on Purdies High Days.a home bred mare.
In 2002, Polly competed at her first Badminton CCI four star. Placed 15th overall, she won the "Best rider under 25" prize, and the "First time at Badminton" prize, this resulted in her being selected as first reserve for the world equestrian games in Jerez . Her four star success continued with 6th place at Lexington USA and 12th at Burghley in 2004. Polly was also short-listed for the Olympics in Athens 2004.
2005 saw Polly win her first Senior Team call-up, competing as an individual on Two for Joy at the Blenheim European Championships in September. A week earlier, Polly and Limestone Rise finished seventh at Burghley (in their 9th four star competition!), her highest finish at four star in the UK. In 2009 Polly was 2nd at Blair International 3*** Event on Bournston Highland Charm.
