I’m so pleased to introduce our Sponsored Team Alex Nairn and her hack, Boyfriend. Alex enjoyed a very successful 2014-15 show season and many of you will have seen our regular updates on Facebook.
"I am 14 years old am in year 8 at Melbourne Girls Grammar School. Aside from horse riding I love athletics and rowing. During the week the horses are kept at Barwon Heads and are looked after by my Granny. She also comes to all the shows and helps with my mum and sister. Coming into the show season the horses are exercised most days although getting down from Melbourne is not always easy.
I finished last show season with my new horse, ‘Boyfriend’ (Moh), and had some very exciting results including;
- Top Ten Child's Hack, SHC Grand Nationals 2015
- Smartest on Parade, SHC Grand Nationals 2015
- Champion Child's Hack, SHCV Horse of the Year 2013
- Champion Child's Hack, All States Show Down 2014
- Top Ten Rider, Open Hack and Child's Hack SHC Grand Nationals 2014
- 1st Mount, Rider and Equipment, Sydney Royal 2014
- Runner up Child's Hack, Vasa 2014
- Champion Rider, Adelaide Royal 2014
My first show for this season was Bacchus Marsh Pre-Royal Show where I won Supreme Ridden Exhibit and Champion Child's Exhibit. I am also starting my new young thoroughbred, DP Lords (Christopher, right) as a show hunter. I love my horses and they make me so proud as they try so hard. Wining some of these fabulous awards is just the icing on the cake. I am very lucky to have such lovely horses."
