After going to Art School in Newcastle, New South Wales, Harriet Glen taught Art in secondary schools in Sydney, but soon found she could combine early morning track work at Royal Randwick Racecourse with teaching. She won the Australian Lady Jockey Championship and by doing so, won a ticket to the UK, where she discovered her artistic ambitions could be realised by marketing her jewellery and sculpture alongside her equestrian activities.
She rode in races all over the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Malta and France, with her racing career culminating with winning the Jersey Vase in the Channel Islands on her own horse, Hollow Tree. Harriet now lives in her farmhouse in Dorset, surrounded by horses, dogs, cats and wildlife.
Victoria Gallery has a small number of particularly elegant pieces of jewellery by Harriet Glen, which have now been discontinued. Harriet is a sculptor and also designs high-quality exquisite jewellery.
