ackie Siu has had a busy few weeks. A couple weeks ago, she was winning an individual gold medal at the Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, where she represented Hong Kong. Now, she just wrapped up a week at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC, where she rode Ferrera, who she produced entirely herself from the time the horse was only three years old. 

Jackie, who moved from Hong Kong to the UK at age 7, has ridden with greats like Anky van Grunsven and Ferdi Eilberg, and now, Carl Hester and also manages Pebbly Hill Stud, where she's breeding the dressage superstars of the future.
