International CCI4* event rider Kate Chadderton was almost born in the saddle, having grown up on a cattle farm in Queensland, Australia. She was an avid member of the Australian Pony Club Association and benefited greatly from the opportunities within the organization. At the age of 18, she moved to New South Wales to work for Boyd Martin; who was just beginning his career. In 2008, on the advice of Boyd, Kate relocated to the United States of America to continue pursuing competition at the elite levels of eventing. She continues to train with Boyd, as well as riding with gold medalist Phillip Dutton.
