I am a show horse rider from Bodalla on the Far South Coast of New South Wales who is currently competing on a show hunter galloway KL Embers. As a team we have continuously qualified to compete at the prestigious Show Horse Council of Australasia Grand National Championships for the past 4 years and place highly at Royal level and Grand National qualifiers. Our goals into the future are to qualify for the EA Show Horse Nationals and continue to compete at the highest level our sport offers. I am also starting to compete in dressage at elementary level and hope to compete at some larger competitions and progress through the levels. However, above all competition goals, my main ambition is to have a happy and healthy horse. I have a desire for perfect presentation, matchy matchy and all things brown! Outside of horses, I work as a town planner at my local Council and hope to finish building stables at my own property in 2019.

I am 23 years old and situated in Bairnsdale Victoria. My main focus is showing and a little bit of dressage in our off season. My passion is to train my own horses from the baby stages up to royal level show horses. My current hack, ‘Silent Moments,’ aka Poppy, is my pride and joy. I bought her off the track and now she is multi royal winner, she also helped me achieve my dream of competing in the Garryowen. I have a young Galloway that I will eventually bring out too, she was broken in by myself last year. My goals for the coming show season are to have fun and enjoy my beautiful horses, strive to be the best I possibly can and continue to aim to compete at the highest level with my home-produced horses. What really makes me proud is when my horses do great work, they are obedient, and they own that arena. Bows are always just an added bonus!
I am a 18 year old dressage rider based in Perth, Western Australia. I have been riding since the age of 4, giving many disciples a go but at the age of 10 I fell into the dressage world and have never left. My horse Dyrring Park Stanmore is a 10 year old warmblood competing at Medium/Advanced. Our goal for 2019 is to be successful at advanced, achieving our State gold medal whilst training to move up to the next levels. My younger horse, Dennis DeNiro is a 7 year old Hannoverian. My goal with Dennis for 2019 is to compete at medium and receive the gold medal whilst training for advanced to do one towards the end of the year. Both of my horses and I are currently on the WA High Performance Recognition Squad. Both of my horses and I have achieved the Benita Wilson trophy at the state championships numerous times for the highest scoring young rider. Our mains goals are to keep continuing correct training and moving up the levels whilst getting out and competing.
