Zara Tindall (née Phillips)

King Charles III's niece Zara Tindall is one of the most recognisable faces on the British Eventing circuit.

Born 15th May 1981 as Zara Phillips, she is the daughter of Princess Anne (The Princess Royal) and Captain Mark Phillips and was educated at Gordonstoun School in Moray, Scotland. During her schooldays, Zara Phillips excelled at many sports, representing her schools in hockey, athletics, and gymnastics. She went on to study at the University of Exeter and qualified as a physiotherapist.

Riding her horse Toytown, Tindall won individual and team gold medals at the 2005 European Eventing Championship at Blenheim, and became World Champion by winning individual gold and team silver medals at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany. 

The same year, she was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year by the British viewing public (an award her mother won in 1971). She was also appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2007 New Year Honours for her services to equestrianism.

On 11 June 2012, Tindall was announced as a member of the British Equestrian team for the 2012 London Olympic Games. She competed in the Olympics on High Kingdom and won a silver medal in the team event. Her mother, Princess Anne, presented her medal. At the World Equestrian Games in 2014, Tindall and High Kingdom were part of the British team that won team silver.

Tindall stopped using her maiden name, Phillips, in March 2016. She competed for the first time as Zara Tindall during her unsuccessful attempt to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In 2017, she won the third place at the Kentucky Three-Day Event on High Kingdom, before he retired from the sport in 2018.

In October 2021, Tindall competed in Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill and finished at 11th place with score 30.4, riding Gleadhill House Stud Ltd's 12-year-old horse named Class Affair. In May 2022, Tindall won the advanced class at the Chatsworth Horse Trials, riding Class Affair.
