Georgina Bloomberg combines her career as an accomplished international show jumper with her passion for philanthropy and animals. She has also co-authored four young adult novels.

Born in New York City, Bloomberg grew up with a love of animals and riding. She started in the saddle at age 4 and amassed a stellar record in the junior hunter and jumper rings, earning grand championships and Best Child Rider awards at every major show on the East Coast. After she chose to focus on the jumper ring in 2001, she earned two gold medals at the prestigious North American Young Rider Championships—team gold in 2002 and individual gold in 2003. In 2004, she was honored with the USET Maxine Beard Award, given to a stand-out up-and-coming young show jumper.

In 2005 she saw major international success, competing in her first FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas and helping an all-female U.S. team win the Samsung Super League Nations Cup at La Baule (France). She has continued to be a consistent contender in top grand prix classes and has picked up wins such as in 2014 at the $210,000 Central Park Grand Prix CSI3* (NY) and the $127,000 Adequan Grand Prix (FL) in 2015. A double-clear performance from Bloomberg in the 2014 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup in Gijon, Spain anchored the U.S. team’s win there. And it was in 2015 that she helped the U.S. team claim bronze in the Pan American Games in Toronto.

When the innovative Global Champions League team competition debuted at the Global Champions Tour in 2016, Bloomberg, a frequent competitor on the GCT series, signed up as both an owner of a team and a rider. After two years with the Miami Glory team, Bloomberg now shows under the banner of the New York Empire team, which she owns. Joining her on the New York Empire squad are 2012 team Olympic gold medalist Scott Brash of Great Britain, 2017 European Championship team gold medalist Cian O’Connor of Ireland and talented stars David Will of Germany and Lillie Keenan of the U.S.

Bloomberg is known for her dedication to philanthropy and in 2006 founded The Riders Closet, an organization that helps make riding clothing accessible to those in Pony Clubs, therapeutic riding programs, intercollegiate riding programs and individual riders in in need. She also is a fervent advocate for animal rescue; she has multiple rescue dogs of her own and was awarded the 2016 Compassion in Action Award from The Humane Society of the United States. Bloomberg’s competition horses share her North Salem, NY farm with retired horses (including a former New York City carriage horse), her rescue dogs and other rescued animals such as a pig, Wilbur—who has quite a following of his own—a goat, a bunny, and miniature horses and mules.

Bloomberg graduated in 2010 from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a BA in Individualized Studies with a concentration on Sports Business and Marketing, and Studio Arts. She also studied at Parsons Fashion Design College in 2012. In 2011, she co-authored The A Circuit, a young adult novel set in the horse show world; three more books followed in the series.

Bloomberg is a proud mother to Jasper, her son born in December 2013.
