Jeanette Brakewell, born 4 February 1974, has been riding since the age of four and is a competitive professional Event Rider.

She was a member of both the British silver medal team at the Athens Olympics of 2004, and the silver medal team in the same event at the Summer Olympics in Sydney 2000 riding her top horse, Over to You.

With Over to You Brakewell was for several years a regular member of the British three day eventing team. Arguably her best achievement to date was in winning the individual silver medal on this horse at the 2002 FEI World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain, 2002 and a team bronze medal at the same event. With this horse she was a team gold medallist on four occasions at the European Eventing Championships (1999, 2001, 2003, 2005).[1] Over to You was retired from four star level eventing in 2007. He still competes in lower levels following his career in which, besides competing at the Olympics, he completed Badminton Horse Trials a record seven times.
