Synopsis

Pippa Funnell: Follow Your Dreams by Pippa Funnell

Welcome to the world of the eventing world's number one rider! Learn all about Pippa - her loves, her hates, her friends, her family. Meet her beloved, beautiful horses, have a sneaky peak inside her gorgeous farm, take a tour around her lorry, and admire her excitable Jack Russell dogs. Find out how she prepares for important competitions, trains and cares for her horses, and still has the time to write Tilly's Pony Tails. And discover how, with hard work, passion and determination, you too can follow your dreams, just like Pippa.

About the Author

Pippa Funnell

Pippa Funnell is the first woman to become eventing's world number one. She was born Pippa Nolan in 1968 and, with her first horse, Sir Barnaby, went from pony-club level to Badminton, en route winning the European Young Rider title in 1987. Her numerous victories include back-to-back European Championships in 1991 and 2001, and back-to-back Olympic silver medals in 2000 and 2004. She is the first winner of the Rolex Grand Slam, in 2003, and has won Badminton three times, in 2002, 2003 and 2005. In 2003 she was awarded the Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year. In 2005 she was awarded an MBE in the Birthday Honours List. In 2010 she was back representing Britain at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky on a young horse with a fabulous future. Pippa and Redesigned did not disappoint finishing a superb 5th. A partnership surely with a very exciting next few years ahead. Pippa is married to the international show jumper William Funnell and lives in Surrey.
