Biography

Domini Lawrence was the daughter of Alfred Clive Lawrence, a prominent barrister who was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1918. Domini earned her own fame, however, as a pioneer in women’s dressage and rode the horse San Fernando at two editions of the Olympic equestrian tournament. In 1968 in Mexico City she was fifth with the British dressage team and 11th individually, while in 1972 in Munich she was 10th in the team and 33rd individually. She then became a judge with the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) and distinguished herself in this field until her 1998 retirement.
