Samantha Murray - Yard Visit


Would you like to meet an Olympic silver medallist modern pentathlete and her show jumping trainer? Now is your chance! is proud to support full time athlete and two-time Olympian Samantha Murray. And she has kindly agreed to host a Harry Hall Yard Visit on Weds 13th June from 9.30 to 11.30am.


At a young age, Sam rode ponies at her grandparents’ farm and enjoyed competing in local shows. After excelling in athletics at school, Sam became involved in athletics and swimming and then discovered Modern Pentathlon. After a taster session in shooting and fencing, Sam joined Ribble Valley Modern Pentathlon Team and at the age of 12, she competed in her first Modern Pentathlon. 


She was soon getting noticed, eventually winning bronze medal in the 2012 World Cup. She improved her scores and won bronze again at the 2012 World Championships, securing her selection for the Olympic Games. Samantha’s defining moment came at the London 2012 Olympics, where she wrote herself into the history books as Olympic silver medallist. Selected again for Rio four years later, she finished 8th.


 Sam continued her studies as she trained and competed before graduating with a degree in Politics from The University of Bath. Since University Sam has been a full time athlete.


Sam will be meeting our guests at the yard of modern pentathlon’s chief equestrian trainer, Jabeena Maslin at her yard in Beaminster, Dorset. We have 12 pairs of FREE tickets to give away and every visitor takes home a goody bag. Find out how Jabeena prepares athletes like Sam to jump decent show jumping courses on a horse they have met only minutes earlier, what kit and training methods they find works for them, and more.
