Podcast length 27′ 47″

Izzy Taylor is currently number 2 in the British Eventing rankings with 20 horses in training and 12 of them at international level. She is constantly on the road to compete around Europe while juggling being the mother of two – Lucy and Fred. Her spring four star goal of Badminton did not go according plan with early retirement for Perfect Stranger following a personal best dressage under the new system.  She has since been collecting ribbons this season including a win at Floors Castle CIC2* with Monkeying Around, a third and fourth place at Chatsworth CIC3*. Chris caught up with Izzy just after she arrived in Ireland for the Tattersalls event this weekend where she has a few rides before heading to Bramham. Izzy talks about managing her life as a parent and how the eventing community is home from home when her children are able to travel with her. She shares her thoughts on the current state of the sport, how tough it is to find young horses when there are so many riders fishing in the same pond, why owners should be given more consideration and how the sport is making significant changes without the riders being a part of the process.
