Michael Owen

Great Britain
  • 46 - Bradeley Law


British rider Michael Owen (37), a professional rider and freelance instructor from Cheshire, has competed at Badminton for the last two years (The Highland Prince). This year he rides Bradeley Law and Badminton will be the first four-star for the horse.

Michael came to prominence aged 21 when he made his four-star debut at Burghley (2000) with Perks of the Job who he acquired when he was 17 and brought through the levels from a five-year-old. With Perks of the Job he made his Badminton debut aged 23 in 2002. He then acquired the six-year-old King Bob who he rode to four-star level and sold. King Bob is now ridden by Swedish rider Ludwig Svennerstal – the pair was eighth at Burghley in 2013 and completed Luhmuhlen last year.

In February 2010 Michael made his racing debut a winning one, when winning an Amateur riders handicap at Wolverhampton with Albero Di Giuda and he is now the part owner of a National Hunt racehorse. When he has the time Michael enjoys playing golf and has a single figure handicap.

Michael trains with John Bowen.

Bradeley Law, owned by his breeder Jane Jennings, is a 12-year-old British-bred gelding. He is by the former advanced eventing stallion Mill Law out of Scarlet Lady who is of unverified breeding.

He was produced by Mary Lofthouse to intermediate and Michael gained the ride in 2013. The following year the pair was 7th in the three-star at Blair Castle.
