GPA Press Release:
The British eventing star will now ride with GPA First Lady helmets. It’s a great honor for our team to work with such a rider.
Daughter of famous eventing riders, Zara ‘s future was mapped out . Her mother, Royal Princess , was a member of the eventing team Vice European Champion in 1971 while her father , Mark Phillips won two Olympic team medals ( gold in 1972 and silver in 1988).
Zara is not only the granddaughter of the Queen of England. She is above all one of the best feminine riders of the world in eventing.
In 2012, in London Olympics, she became the first athlete in the modern history of the Games to be awarded a medal by their mother : “when your mother hands you an Olympic silver medal in front of your home crowd it makes it all worthwhile” – she said to Equestrio (Autumn – Winter 2015).
While she already got a huge hit list, Zara still dreaming “I would hope that I have a bit more left in me and that I might, for example, win another individual medal, and hopefully an Olympic one. There are many great riders today but I hope that I can make it to a few more championships riding at the top level for as long as I can.” (Equestrio, Autumn – Winter 2015).
Let’s hope her new helmets will bring her good luck…
