Polly Swindells is a Finnish equestrian competing her way to Tokyo 2020. Her career is an unlikely and inspiring tale of excelling in a high-spend sport on a shoestring budget (with a little help from her friends).
Polly works at a stables by day and ploughs everything she has into competing. She and her horse Ferro S will need just a little help if they're to fund their way through trials and reach the Tokyo Olympics.
In 2015, Polly Swindells qualified for the Rio games and her Olympic dream looked set. But a freak riding accident caused a broken back, and it all came crashing down.
For any other rider, two broken vertebrae would be a setback too far. For Polly it was just another hurdle in a career defined by challenge. Back on the horse, Polly faces another heavy year of competition, scrambling for funds, sleeping in a horsebox, and relying on a supporting cast of friends and family to get by.
We like to stay informal and fun at PauliinaSwindells.com but Polly lives and breathes her sport. With a professional brand, social presence and a blossoming profile, we can offer a range of opportunities to sponsors who wish to support Polly, online and off.
