I am 19 years old and have been riding seriously ever since I caught the jumping bug and drifted away from the hacking world and into eventing when I was 13 on my second pony.
He took me from Pony Club Grade 5 to EvA80 and at 15 I was bought my first “big” horse.
Kokino Jax is my current horse I am competing on, and is the sort of off the track thoroughbred that was so slow he never even made it past barrier trials. Despite owning Jax for over 4 years now, it has only been in the past year and a half that we have made progress together, due to an extremely unfortunate few years for Jax in the injury department.
We are currently competing in EvA95 over both SA and VIC and will be moving up to EvA105 in the latter part of 2018.
With Jax’s laidback nature I’m not sure if he will make it into the higher levels of eventing, however my personal goal is to make it to 1* to compete at the MI3DE, and an ultimate goal would to be compete 2* or higher at the AI3DE, on whatever horse that may be.
Aside from riding my own horse, I also ride horses for my coach in preparation to sell, which is something I find extremely rewarding and has had such a positive impact on my riding.
I also occasionally pose in front of a camera wearing Black Horse Clothing for this website, which is an excellent way to try on all the new products and decide how many more breeches and riding shirts I need to add to my collection each season....... I’m super excited to be a part of the Black Horse team, I’m extremely lucky to be able to represent a brand I love and wear!
