I've had so many letters from people saying I've inspired them to take up riding, and that's an amazing feeling.
For me, I wouldn't mind if I never did another Olympics; nothing can beat London. The setting, the support, the military people. From start to finish, it was such fun. I had the most amazing time.
It is probably like an artist. They see in their head what they want to draw, and they draw it. It is like I have a feeling inside me that I want to create on a horse, and that is what I do.
I don't ever want to be famous. I never want to live that life. I genuinely hate the fact that I would be stopped for a picture or an autograph all the time.
You need to believe in yourself.
I think it's really strange for somebody that's probably never been in the public eye. All of a sudden I was 'big time' - boom, it all just happened.
I literally worked from the bottom up to where I am now.
I was frightened. I hadn't really had any experience, and then all of a sudden I was thrown straight into doing interviews. Most people have build-up. I had none.
There is Rio in 2016, but it won't be the same as going to London and hearing 24,000 people - nearly all British - cheering, stamping their feet, and screaming your name.
When I used to say I did dressage, I got blank looks. No one had a clue what I was on about.
My first ambition was to be a show jumper. I did a bit of dressage as part of it, and the dressage trainer saw me and said, 'Why are you wasting your time with the other stuff? You should be concentrating on this.'
I turned the Gloucester Christmas lights on and our local Newent lights on, so everyone recognises me now. It is a completely different life for me.
All you can do is to do your best.
People recognise me now. I've got so much fan mail.
The fan mail I get every day is incredible. It piles through the door from not just Britain but everywhere. It is so great to have that support behind me - everyone says I am an inspiration. It is great.
To be one of the first British females to get three gold medals, to join Laura Trott in doing that, is a huge privilege.
It's going to be a rule, I think, for wearing a crash hat, and I actually fractured my skull through not wearing a hat. I was so lucky to escape from that, and now, it's something I always do.
So many horses get stage fright when they enter the arena, and that's it - the performance is over.
I've had dreams - there were three things I wanted to do during my career. I did them during my first year of Grand Prix.
My parents don't have a lot of money, and it was only when my mum's mum died that we could buy Fernandez, my first grand prix horse.
