Along with fellow event riders Alex Hua Tian and William Fox-Pitt he went to Eton College and is the son of Richard Meade, Britain’s most successful male equestrian to date. Harry said, "From the age of about two or three, all I wanted to do was follow in my father's footsteps and try and get to the top in eventing." Although not superstitious, Harry rides in his Father’s cross-country colours (white).

In 2004 Harry was shortlisted for the Young Rider European Championships (with Midnight Dazzler) and in 2014 represented Great Britain at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy (WILD LONE).
