Natasha Baker MBE

Middlesex

3

Natasha has been surrounded by horses all her life and began riding at her local RDA group (South Bucks). After watching the Paralympic Games on TV in 2000, she announced to her parents that this was what she wanted to do. Natasha achieved her goal in 2012, when she competed at the London Paralympic Games, winning double individual gold (Grade II).

Natasha made her senior Championship debut in 2011, when she represented Great Britain as an individual at the European Championships. After producing two great tests, she returned with two individual gold medals. The following year saw Natasha repeat her 2011 success, winning two individual gold medals in the Grade II class at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. She was awarded an MBE at the end of that year in the 2013 New Year Honours list.

Since London, Natasha has secured 12 medals for Great Britain. She now rides at Grade III level, having been reclassified in 2018.
