One of the most promising representatives from the youth sector is undoubtedly Jessica Mendoza, the British rider who is only 20 years old but has already taken part in the senior European Championships (Aachen 2015, 4th place for the British team) and already made numerous appearances in international competitions including a victory with the British team in the Furusyyia Fei Nations Cup in Rome and participation in the Barcelona final of the same tournament from which Jessica with the British team has returned with a silver medal.Rewarded in 2015 with the trophy of the Best U21 Rider during the British Showjumping Awards, Jessica is also well known outside the UK, having in the same year received the Rising Star award from the International Equestrian Federation. Mendoza is now definitely on the road to the top as she confirmed in London where she was crowned champion for 2016 in the World Class Program presented by Dodson & Horrell, a national category reserved for under 23s, which she won riding Wan Architect.
Mendoza is without among the best young British riders, but from 2014 she has been living permanently in the Netherlands in Eindhoven where she has already set up team Mendoza.
A geographic choice that led Jessica to transfer to Holland from Britain, as from Eindhoven she has in fact the ability to reach most of the international competitions with minimal stress to the horses.
But it is not a mystery that the British youth sector are among the best in the world along with the Dutch and German, where young talents are identified and supported as much in education as in the sports development and above all are supported financially through greater involvement of sponsors in the equestrian industry.
It has been Jessica Mendoza’s year, who after Scott Brash continues the British tradition of the great equestrian talents.
