Lucy Davis got an early start, riding as soon as she could walk and taking lessons by the age of five. It was a natural progression for Davis to take up riding early on, as her grandfather, Robert Barron Frieze, worked in the horse racing industry as a jockey’s agent. Davis also played soccer competitively until the age of 16 when the commitment of both sports became too much and she chose riding.

Davis got her first taste of international team competition when she attended the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC) in 2009 and 2010. In 2009, she rode True Love to Young Rider Individual Silver medal honors. The following year, she was on the Zone 10 Gold-medal winning team and placed fifth individually with Nemo 119.

In 2012, Davis received the Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy as a young rider in one of the Olympic disciplines who exemplified both sportsmanship and horsemanship. She had a standout year in 2013, including competing in her first Rolex/FEI World Cup Final, representing the U.S. on her first FEI Nations Cup™ teams, earning the Furusiyya Leading Rider of the Day Award for her double-clear jumping effort at Rotterdam, and securing a major win at the Grand Prix of Lausanne to make her the youngest rider to win a Global Champions Tour Grand Prix at the age of 20. Several of those accomplishments took place with Barron, one of Davis’ top horses, who is named after her grandfather. The following year, Davis reached another milestone by helping the Hermès U.S. Show Jumping Team at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France, win the Team Bronze medal.

In addition to riding at the highest level, Davis graduated from Stanford University in June of 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a specialization in Architectural Design.
