With my father David Green being an Aussie and my mother Lucinda Green being British, there has always been an option of which country’s flag I would compete under. With my upbringing, I have often found myself waving an Australian flag with one hand and a British one with the other. I was born in Britain so it felt natural to be a part of the British system, something I have always admired and been extremely grateful for.
However, when I went back to Australia as an adult, I fell in love with the country and it has captivated me ever since. I guess I am just an Aussie at heart, so for me, it feels right to compete under the Australian flag, something of which I am immensely proud. And as an Australian event rider based in the UK,
I am extremely grateful that I will continue to train and compete within the very best Eventing scene in the world.
