Caroline has been riding since she was two years old and was lucky enough to get her first horse, Misty, when she was eleven. Caroline had Misty for 27 years and is blessed to still have her granddaughter, Mistral, who qualified as a 3 * Endurance horse, and her 2 year old great grandson.
Caroline started Endurance about 12 years ago after being inspired when her father (Chris Baker) showed her the amazing photos of horses and riders going up Cougar Rock on the Tevis Cup 100 mile ride in California. Caroline’s father is still the highest placed UK rider to complete the Tevis, finishing in 7th place.
Caroline has been riding internationally for many years and enjoys the experiences gained riding in different countries on different horses over varied terrains. Caroline considers it to be an honour and a privilege to be part of Team GBR.
