Kathryn Robinson

  • 24 - Let it Bee


It will be a first Badminton for Canadian rider Kathryn Robinson, who is based near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.

Kathryn was born in Canada – her mother is Canadian and her father British – although the family moved to the UK soon after when her father inherited a farm in Northamptonshire.

She began riding at a local riding school and became keen and competitive member of the Woodland Pytchley Pony Club. After finishing A levels and an arts foundation course she began eventing aged 19 while based as a working pupil with Jamaican international Sam Albert. She then worked a season apiece with racehorse trainers Roger Charlton and Alan King.

In 2011 Kathryn competed in the Greenwich test event and was short-listed for London 2012 and in 2014 was selected for the WEG but was unable to compete because of a technical hitch with the paperwork. Later that year with Let It Bee she gained her best result when the pair was 7th at Pau four-star. Last year the pair was selected for the Pan Am Games but was eliminated after a fall having been placed second after dressage.

Together with her partner Italian rider Giovanni Uglotti – who is also entered for Badminton – Kathryn runs Cranford Stud Eventing, producing horses for the sport. Kathryn enjoys racing and socialising.

Let It Bee, owned by Gayle Robinson and rider, is a 15-year-old German-bred Westphalian gelding by Lamerto (a son of Linaro) out of Baroness by the influential sire Brentano II. He was acquired from Germany as a seven-year-old.
