Sian Dyson | 34 | UK
Riding Experience: Sian has ridden her whole life, though her last competitive event was a gymkhana in her childhood. She decided to sign up for the derby after realising her most outstanding lifetime achievement was getting in the local newspaper for saving a cat. By the end of August she'll be able to use the world's longest horserace as dinner party conversation.
Outdoor/Survival Experience: Sian volunteered on the 2014 Derby where she fell in love with the Derby and realised she couldn't live without it.
