Sharon Hunt is a world class eventer who currently competes on a select group of horses at all levels.
She is well known for taking part in the Olympics, World Equestrian Games, Burghley and Badminton – and she travels throughout the UK and beyond to compete. She, aboard Jasper (Tankers Town) was part of a team that brought home a bronze for Britain at the 2008 Olympics. Jasper (now happily retired) was a horse that Sharon produced entirely herself. She has subsequently produced many other successful event horses, one of which was selected for the Brazilian Team at the 2012 Olympics.
When she is not riding or producing her own horses, Sharon is busy coaching, running clinics, camps, individual sessions and fulfilling her commitment as the U18 coach for the Eastern Region BE Team, a role she finds rewarding and enjoyable.
Sharon also delivers keynote speeches and gives mounted demonstrations at a variety of equestrian, sporting, corporate and other events throughout the country.
Sharon is based at Darshams Farm, Wetherden, in Suffolk. She is part of a close-knit family who are extremely supportive and proud of her eventing career. Hot on her heels is Sharon’s 13-year-old niece Aimee, who is showing a natural aptitude for riding!
