Welcome to Nicola Wilson Eventing
International event rider, Nicola Wilson is based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire and with her great partner, ‘Opposition Buzz’, were pathfinders for the British Team, winning team gold and bronze medals at the European Championships in 2009/2011, Team gold at the World Equestrian Games 2010 (USA) and Olympic Team Silver Medal at London 2012 Olympics.
In 2014, Nicola was part of Team GBR at the Alltech World Equestrian Games (FR), where, riding Annie Clover finished 25th individually.
Nicola has won the Scottish Open Championship no fewer than 4 times on 3 different horses, which is a considerable feat.
The 2015 eventing season turned into Nicola’s best season to date with many personal bests being achieved, including a FEI world eventing ranking of 8th position in June and for the second year running finishing the highest lady rider in the BE rankings.
At both Kentucky CCI**** and the Mitsubushi Motors Badminton CCI**** International Horse Trials, Nicola was placed in the top ten – Annie Clover was 8th in Kentucky and One Two Many (7th) at Badminton, both horses jumping double clears.
One Two Many then went on to win a further two CIC***’s, with double clears at both Hopetoun and Burgham International Horse Trials, resulting in him gaining his Rio Olympic qualification and a call up for Team GBR at the FEI Longines European Eventing Championships that were held at Blair Atholl, helping secure a team silver medal.
Winning the CIC*** at the Equi-trek Bramham International Horse Trials gave Annie Clover a direct reserve slot to One Two Many for the European Championships and also her Rio Olympic qualification.
At the British Open Championships at Gatcombe, Nicola, riding Beltane Queen was crowned the British National Champion
Nicola finished the 2015 season by winning the CCI*** at Military-Boekelo (NED), on Bulana, a young advanced mare that meant going into the 2016 season, Nicola has three horses with Rio Olympic qualifications.
“As always there are highs and lows with horses and in our sport and I could not be more grateful to my wonderfully loyal owners with whom we all have so much fun along the way, my fantastic sponsors, the girls on the yard who work so hard to make sure the horses are looked after, my coaches and home support team, all of whom make up ‘Team Wilson’ and to the Equestrian World Class Programme, the UK Sport’s National Lottery funded programme who’s support makes so much possible.”
Team Work, Team Wilson.
