Rider Profile

Georgia Wilson
North Wales
Competition Grade:

Georgia started riding when she was two years old after her mum was advised by Georgia’s physio that it would help with her balance (Georgia has cerebral palsy). Georgia’s first pony was a Shetland called Diana, who was followed by a pony called Poppy – he was handed down to Georgia’s sisters when she had outgrown him.

Georgia joined the Pony Club and the RDA at Clwyd SRC, attending her first RDA nationals on Aaron, a palomino pony. She was on the front page of the magazine the following year in a tweed jacket! That’s when she got the bug for dressage, and she also competed with BYRDs Wales team. 

Georgia has made many friends along the way, including Tess Chew, Janet Horswill and her current coach/mentor Sophie Wells, all of whom have made a positive contribution to her riding and results to date.

Georgia has a special friendship with Izzy Palmer because they are the young ones on the Programme, and they enjoy sharing their experiences and supporting each other.

In her spare time, Georgia enjoys baking and spending time with her French bulldog, Billy, who accompanies her everywhere. He isn't popular in the wagon because he snores so loudly!

Joining the squad in Herning for the 2022 World Championships and qualifying for Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, Georgia and Sakura gained a bronze medal in the individual freestyle with a score of 75.834%.
