New Zealand
  • 84 - Bosun


British-born Lucy (38) who rides for New Zealand is based near Banbury in Oxfordshire.

She is a member of the NZ High Performance Programme – in 2014 with Willy Do, she represented NZL as an individual at the WEG in Caen.

Lucy was a former member of British Junior and Young Rider Squads and in 1993, aged 15, was the Schools National Champion. She spent seven years (2002-2009) in New Zealand working as a sport physiotherapist along-side eventing. In New Zealand she was in the Talent and Development squad and represented NZ at the Trans-Tasman Games and was long-listed for the 2008 Olympic Games. On return to the UK she set up her own yard in Oxfordshire.

In 2012 she completed Burghley, her first four-star, with two horses, winning the HSBC training bursary as best four-star first-timer with Willy Do (19th) and in 2013 completed her first Badminton with Animator who was NZ first reserve for London 2012. Willy Do gave her a career best when 11th at Badminton in 2014 and although eliminated at the WEG ended the season in second place in the three-star at Boekelo.

Lucy trains with Andrew Fletcher, Luis Alvarez-Cevera and Robert Snaddon. Her mother formerly evented and won Chatsworth Horse trials and her sister, Sophie Miller runs a breaking yard near Oakham and competes young horses.

Bosun is a 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding. Bred by David McCann, he is by the grand prix jumper Cruising out of a mare by the thoroughbred Good Thyne. He was acquired from the breeder for Claire Gregson – a member of his owning syndicate – to ride herself. She produced him and rode at two-star level and then due to work commitments handed the reins to Lucy.
