Supporting Young Equestrians

Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to keep Tiggy’s legacy alive.

About Tiggy's Trust

Tiggy’s Trust is a foundation that was set up in memory of Tiggy Hancock, an all-round wonderful person, talented rider, beloved daughter, adored sister and loyal friend who was taken from this world on the 16th of June 2021 at just 15 years of age.

It was no coincidence that Tiggy touched the lives of so many in her short life – her golden heart, infectious fun personality and cheeky smile extended to all who knew her. Despite her young age she had the capacity to reach out and offer positivity to those around her, both young and old, and through the Trust we hope to continue that legacy.

Tiggy’s Trust has been set up as a way of honouring Tiggy’s memory by spreading the kindness, generosity and inclusivity that was an integral part of her personality.

Key Initiatives of the Trust

Under this programme we aim to help riders to develop values of inclusivity, kindness and sportsmanship. We hope to encourage participants to express these values in their daily life.

Cross Country at its Best

While there will always be risk involved with jumping solid obstacles, we are always striving to find ways to make it safer for both horse and rider.

Tiggy I think about you every day I wake up and before I sleep. What a beautiful mark you made to this sometimes harsh world. Your dazzling eyes and kindest person that you were inspire me and my girls every day. Xx
