Early life[edit]

Hindle was born in Preston, Lancashire on 19 May 1975, the daughter of multimillionaire property developer John Hindle. After riding a donkey on the beach at Blackpool aged four, she began taking regular riding lessons at her aunt's stables. She began competitive showing in Working hunter classes, followed by eventing.[2]

Career[edit]

Aged 12, Hindle was under instruction from international dressage judge Stephen Clarke and at 18 she moved to Sweden to train with Kyra Kyrklund at the Flyinge Stud.

When Kyrklund moved to the UK in 1993, Hindle moved to the base of Netherlands Olympic dressage medallist Ellen Bontje in Frankfurt, Germany. It was from this base that she competed in the Beijing Olympics.[2]

Now running the Brookhouse Stud in Erbach, Hessen, Hindle is part of the London 2012 World Class Performance Programme.[2]
