TRAINER: SOPHIE CLICK

Sophie is a young professional Eventer who has had the privilege of competing on numerous horses throughout her 15-year career, including successful partnerships with three amazing horses at the top levels of Eventing.  At the age of 18, Sophie spent six months on the East Coast, where she lived and trained among a number of the best riders in the USA, including several members of the US Olympic team.  


While back East she competed in the Fair Hill International 2* (now 3*) on her horse Fernhill Rising. She then competed on the opposite side of the country at the Galway Downs International 3* (was 2*) in 2017. Sophie competed in her first Advanced Horse trials when she was merely 18, and currently is training two horses - Quidproquo and Tarantino 54. Quidproquo is a newly minted Advanced horse with many 3* completions. Tarantino 54 is a ‘green’ 7-year-old with tremendous potential who had never competed in a recognized event until the most recent Event at Rebecca Farm, completing a successful weekend at Training level. 


Throughout her many years of equestrian experience, Sophie has learned from several world renowned riders, including James Alliston, Hawley Bennett, Stuart Black, Jill Blunt, Robert Costello, Phillip Dutton, Ruy Fronseca, Robin Hahn, Lillian Heard, Nicholas Holmes-Smith, Leslie Law, Jordan Lindstedt, Boyd Martin, David O’Connor, Karen O’Connor, Richard Picken, Tamra Smith, Oliver Townend, and John Zopatti.


Sophie’s riding career has been defined by tremendous dedication, persistence, hard work, patience, and always kindness to her horses.  She is known in the Eventing world for being a very thoughtful rider, who makes sound decisions in the moment, despite on-course chaos.  She is wise beyond her years, with a tremendously high equestrian IQ.  Sophie has typically taken difficult horses and turned them into competitive upper level event horses. Her philosophy is that with the right fundamentals, practiced with rigorous discipline and patience, riders can get the most out of every horse they ride. Under Sophie's care, your horse will receive loving care, achieve maximum performance results, and will be treated as if it was her own.
