Unfiltered Eventing

My name is Lesley Grant-Law. I am a Canadian eventer, based out of the United States for the past seven years. Prior to becoming a professional rider, I graduated, with a master’s degree from York University in the top ten per cent of my class... which leads me to believe I must have been very smart despite the fact I then embarked on an equestrian career.

I have been either short -or long-listed on the Canadian Eventing Team numerous times and was slotted to go to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, until my horse injured himself mere days before leaving. I then turned to a dirty life of cocaine and alcohol... no, not really, but I would have liked to! I have ribbons from one-, two-, three- and four-star events and have produced many horses from the start up through the grades, as well as some of America's top Young Event horse champions.

My husband is the bionic and all too amazing rider, Individual gold medalist and multiple Team medal winner Leslie Law. Since marrying me, he has lost all of his hair, but I am sure that his life has never been more fulfilled. Together we run a crazy busy business called Law Eventing in Ocala, Florida, where we teach, compete, buy and sell, and go out to do more than 20 clinics a year.

I don’t so much blog as I write weird articles that people either love or hate. I write on random topics, not always to do with horses, and have written for everything from print magazines and horse websites to business websites.

My proudest accomplishment is my son, Liam, who has just turned four.
