Welcome to my website,
My name is Yazmin Pinchen, i was born in the U.K in 1993. My career started with the pony circuit,travelling up and down the country with my parents and my sister. My sister Jorden stopped riding when she was thirteen and i carried on. I was so lucky to find an amazing first horse 'Zodiac Z' who took me to the European Championships in Turkey for the children on horses final. I was only fourteen when i got this opportunity. Our team was amazing out there and we won a Gold medal. I went on to win the individual Silver medal. From this i qualified for the Children on horses World final in Mexico. That was an experience i will never forget. From that moment on i knew i wanted to ride full time, we got a few horses in and jumped straight into it. Ive never looked back.When i turned eighteen i moved to Belgium to train with Ludo Phillapaerts, i learnt so much from him and his brother Johan. I got the chance to jump the Global Champions Tour which was unforgettable. My first 5* was in Abu Dhabi, it was all very overwhelming jumping with people i looked up to. The grand prix went a lot bigger than i imagined, we just had the last fence down!! I was over the moon with my result and it gave me a real confidence boost for the next one. Thats where my 5* debut started and its grown to winning grand prix's and competing for Great Britain in senior Nation Cup teams. I have a fantastic string of horses and a great team around me.
I am extremely honoured to be riding for Liam Payne, former one direction singer. He has a fantastic Tangelo Stallion who is proving to be incredible already at the young age of 6. He has so much scope and ability so i am really looking forward to seeing him progress. Having Liam join my team is amazing and i am very grateful he is supporting my olympic dream.
