Ann Moore (equestrian)

Medal record
Olympic Games
Silver 1972 München Individual jumping

Ann Elizabeth Moore (born August 20, 1950 in Birmingham, England), was a member of the 1972 Olympic Equestrian team from Great Britain winning the individual mixed jumping silver medal.[1] She was the first woman to win an individual medal in her sport at the Olympics.[2]


Ann Moore did win a silver medal in the individual class at the 1972 Munich Olympic showjumping event on her horse Psalm. However she was not the first woman to do so, as Marion Coakes riding Stroller won a silver medal in the same event four years previously at the Mexico Olympics. Ann Moore is the last British rider to win any medal at the Olympic showjumping event as since 1972 no British rider or riders have had any success in either the individual or team riding event there.
