Jonelle Price (née Richards) (born 14 October 1980) is a New Zealand equestrian.[1] At the 2012 Summer Olympics she won the bronze medal in Team eventing.[2] In 2018, she won the Badminton Horse Trials in England.[3] and also won the Luhmuhlen Horse Trials on Maggie in 2018.

Price also runs a farm business with husband, Tim Price.[4] Jonelle won Badminton in 2018, after many unsuccessful attempts, on the black mare, Classic Moet. Jonelle had taken a year out to have a baby, but a week after having her child, got back to riding. Tim price, her husband, also got placed at 2018’s Badminton Horse Trials, on their gelding, Ringwood Sky Boy. When asked to describe each other, Jonelle said that Tim was a more talented rider and Tim said that she was more competitive. Classic Moet was predicted to have one of the fastest cross country rounds as she is known to be an incredibly speedy little horse, she certainly proved this at Badminton.
