Biography

 

British rider Tom Jackson (25) completed his first four-star at Badminton last year with Waltham Fiddlers Find and later in the year the pair also completed Pau. Tom, who is based near Ashford in Kent, is a former British Junior and Young Rider team member and medallist.

In 2010 with Waltham Fiddlers Find, Tom won the one-star at Weston Park and the following year was a member of the gold medal team at the Junior European Championships. After leaving school aged 16 and three seasons competing, schooling and breaking horses in two international event yards, in 2013 Tom set up his own event yard in Kent. That year with Waltham Fiddlers Find he won team silver in the Young Rider Europeans and at the following year’s European Championships team bronze (7th  individual). The pair won the 2014 Under-25 championship at Bramham and was again a member of the British Young Rider team winning team bronze. They were selected for the Senior Europeans at Blair Castle but were withdrawn due to injury.

Tom’s mother used to ride in dressage and his father is a farrier – Tom’s two sisters also event on an amateur basis.

Tom trains with Pippa Funnell.

Waltham Fiddlers Find is a 15-year-old Dutch-bred gelding. He is by Jetset D out of a mare by the leading jumping sire Lux Z. He was acquired as a recently imported four-year-old and was bought by the family as Tom’s first horse after ponies. Tom has brought him through the grades from Pony Club to four-star.
