Krissy Harris

Krissy has been riding for 28 years, and professionally training horses for film, television and the sport of showjumping for 20 years.

 

She has represented Australia as a showjumping rider at the World Cup Final in 1997, and again at the World Championships in 1998. Krissy is just at home promoting and producing the shows as she is riding in them. Krissy's talents as an organizer and jumping rider, along with her detailed knowledge of veterinary first aid & horse training make her versatile on the set, from Animal Department Coordinator, to vet medic to action double.

After travelling extensively with horses overseas, both for film work, live show and showjumping, Krissy is very experienced in the logistics and coordination of the movement and care of large amounts of horses.
