Georgie has been a full-time rider since leaving school and with help from her mother Jo runs a yard from home. Georgie first competed in show jumping until asked to be a member of her school’s eventing team. In 2004 she was reserve for the 2004 British European Pony team and decided to stick with eventing. Four years later she first competed at Badminton aged 19 with Running Brook and in 2009 was the only rider to complete the cross country with two horses inside the time.
In 2006 she won the Under-18 National Championships, and for two years running (2007 & 2008) was the recipient of the BE Edy Goldman trophy presented to the leading rider Under 21. After a successful 2009 season Georgie was selected for the Young Rider European Championships with Skylight, bred by FEI judge Christian Landolt, and won team gold. In 2015 she gained her best 5* result when 12th at Burghley with Wii Limbo.
in 2017 with Halltwon Harley she won the Nations Cup three-star competition in Wiener Neustadt, in Austria – Georgie’s first Nations Cup. The following year the pair was the winner of the CCI3* in Millstreet and was second in the Nations Cup in America (The Plains). In 2019 they flew to Tokyo to take part in the Olympic test event gaining 4th place. Georgie trains with Caroline Moore
Halltown Harley owned by Suzanne Doggett, Toby Goss and Georgie Spence, is a 16-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding. He is by the Irish-based Selle Francais sire Harlequin Du Carel (also the sire of event horses Boleybawn Ace, Back to Business, The Court Jester). He is one of 16 offspring for his dam Cummer Beauty by Clover Hill, a former jumper and five-star rated mare in Ireland. She is also the dam of international showjumpers Camblin (by Lux) formerly ridden by Shane Breen, Dorada (William Funnell) and BP Blondey both also by Harlequin Du Carel. Harley was formerly ridden to three-star by New Zealander Caroline Powell; Georgie acquired the ride in the middle of 2016. Harley has completed Badminton on two previous occasions, 2018 & ’19.
