Rider Profile

Kitty King

Kitty was the first athlete to have represented Great Britain at all levels – Pony, Junior, Young Rider and Senior. After making her senior debut in 2005 at the FEI European Championships hosted at Blenheim Palace, Rio 2016 saw Kitty making her first Olympic appearance.

Riding from an early age, her first call-up to represent Great Britain came in 1998 when she was selected for the Pony European Championships, where she brought home a team silver medal. Two years later she was selected for the Junior Europeans and returned with a second team silver medal and a fourth place finish with Leading Edge.

Kitty was crowned the U25 British Champion in 2003, the same year she won a team gold medal at the Young Rider Europeans in Poland. Representing Great Britain once more at the Senior European Championships at Blair Castle in 2015, she was the highest placed British competitor taking fourth place, and a team silver medal, on Jane & Frank Inns’ Persimmon.

In 2016, she was part of the British team that went to the Olympic Games in Rio, riding Ceylor LAN. 

She competed as an individual at the 2019 European Championships in Luhmühlen on Vendredi Biats and finished seventh – the highest-placed finish of the British riders.
