In 2019, she won the most prestigious event in the sport at Badminton Horse Trials with Vanir Kamira. This success was part of a record-breaking season with 15 international wins, including the Blenheim 4*L title on Brookﬁeld Inocent, Hartpury 4*S on Quarrycrest Echo, the 6yo World Young Horse Championship on Cooley Lancer and many others. All in all, Piggy won at every international level of the sport from 2* to 5* - an outstanding achievement.

With an exceptional string of horses to ride, her success at the highest level looks set to continue in 2020.
