Atiya enjoyed an abundance of success in the Children on Horses classes at home and abroad, which gave her the initial taste for international showjumping and representing her country. Placing 4th in the Grand Prix in Wierden and playing a strong part of the team which jumped to second in the Nations Cup in Austria, she was then selected to compete at the European Championships in 2018 where she posted another super double clear in the Nations Cup format.
She is now translating this experience into building up her own string of horses here at Wodehouse Stud, from 4 year olds to Grand Prix level. At now 18 years of age, she has already competed upto 2* Grand Prix level, and has an abundance of notable results under her belt, whilst also having gained valuable experience in the training of young horses working at Breen equestrian. A driven young rider, we are excited as she progresses within the sport!
India has benefitted from riding a wide variety of horses early on in her career making her naturally very adaptable. She has also enjoyed having the opportunity on numerous occasions to produce her horses right through to Grand Prix level. Since winning a silver medal at the European Championships in Austria in 2015, India has been producing a good team of horses and becoming established in the senior levels, in 2018 stepping up to Grand Prix level jumping CSI** Ranking classes at home and abroad. India is also not shy of the big stages with placings at HOYS and Olympia on ponies and has also competed in the Puissance at just 17 years old!
Most recently she has represented her country on Young Rider Nations Cup teams and has an impressive resume up to 4* 1m50 level.
Directly after her last A Level exam, India moved down to The Billy Stud in Surrey where she spent a year learning from William & Pippa Funnell about the breeding and production of their young horses. During COVID, she also spent some time in Germany and also in Belgium learning from the top Belgian showjumper, Pieter Devos.
India is now located back in Belgium as a show rider for one of the World’s best-known trading stables, the Stephex Stables.
