British showjumping rider Jackson Reed Stephenson & Crystal Cove Vilamoura, Spanish Sunishine Tour
Jackson Reed-StephensonSince he was 3 years old Jackson Reed-Stephenson has been developing his riding skills and now at the ripe old age of 25 he is competing with some of the worldâ€™s top riders and more than proving his worth as an International Show Jumper. He spent time at both Michael Whitaker`s and Ludger Beerbaum`s yards as a young rider and has represented Britain at junior and senior level.
Now running his own yard of 10 horses, Jackson is a great believer in thorough training and schooling, taking regular dressage lessons to improve his horses™ suppleness and way of going in the jumping arena. With a dedicated team, including his groom Helen (who has been with his family for 16 years and couldn`t live without) and, usually one full time training pupil, Jackson starts at about eight o`clock each morning, riding up to 5 horses in the morning before spending the afternoons teaching. â€śI am lucky to have a good team to take care of everything while I am away at shows, Jackson told us. It`s reassuring to know the horses left at home are in good hands.
The best bit about what I do is the feeling you get when you jump a good round or the horse you are on improves, he continues, although of course you can`t beat the feeling of winning! Jackson would love to represent his country again, ultimately at the Olympic Games, and hopes Rolex, one of his top horses, can help him achieve this. The seven year old has already been proving his worth this season in Ireland and Italy and hopefully he has more to give over the coming years.
If Jackson hadnâ€™t got into show jumping he would have fancied being a stockbroker in London - thankfully he didnâ€™t and is now an established and popular member of the British and European circuit.
Bad jumping surfaces at shows.
Most embarrassing moment:
Falling off my 13.2hh pony in the ring. When I tried to get back on he spun round and kicked me!
