Tom, 25, is a talented International Event Rider ranked in the top 20 British Eventing Rankings for 2016. He is one of Britain’s up and coming riders having already represented his country at Pony, Junior and Young Rider level winning a team gold in 2007 and 2010 and 2011. Tom has also competed at Badminton, Burghley, Pau and Luhmuhlen 4 star events and is based at the HRH Princess Royals’ Gatcombe Park Estate in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.
2016 was a notable year for the McEwen team. Winning the Bramham U25 CCI*** on Toldeo De Kerser put Tom and Toledo on the entry list for Rio Olympics for Team GB. For Toldeo De Kerser at just 9 years old, being on the nominated entry list for Rio 2016 was always going to come a little early but with his debut 4 star double clear in Pau at the end of the 2016 season Tom and Toldeo have WEG and Tokyo Olympics firmly in their sights.
Tom & Joyride won the CIC** at Barbury International Horse Trials, Diesel proved he was on the comeback trail with a runner up slot in the prestigious ERM CIC 3 star class at Blair Castle as well as debuting at Hickstead and Stockholm, intermediates Barina 50 and So Amazing notched up wins and were subsequently sold to new homes and all of the novices picked up wins along the way to their first CIC’s.
Tom’s past and recent accomplishments make it evident that he has already made his mark on the sport of eventing through his hard work, dedication and consistent results and will continue to have a successful future.
