Biography

Daisy Dick was a member of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games eventing team, which won bronze. Dick has been eventing at the top level for fifteen years. She represented Britain in the Young Rider Championships in 1993, was seventh at Badminton the following year, and represented Britain as an individual at the European Championships at Burghley in 1997, and again at Blenheim in 2005. She won at Blenheim the following year, and in 2007, won team gold and came seventh individually at the European Championships at Pratoni in Italy. Dick also won Gatcombe in 2007. Dick’s father was the great National Hunt jockey Dave Dick who will always be remembered for famously winning the 1956 Grand National on ESB, overtaking the Queen Mother’s horse Devon Loch when it collapsed just yards from the winning post. Dick’s mother was a top event rider herself and represented Ireland in three day eventing and was placed at both Badminton and Burghley.
