KWS student, Sophia Redenbach (Year 11), recently competed at the Equestrian Australia Horse of the Year competition held in Sydney over the weekend 10-12 March. This competition is the only qualifying event for the EA Australasian Championships which will be held later this year. The event involves three days of competition where horses and riders from New Zealand and all states across Australia vie for the top awards.
Sophia and her horse, Daydream Believer, placed third in the Open Large Show Hunter Hack Class – competing against adults and many full time professional riders. The 3rd placing achieved by Sophia (behind the two most awarded Show Hunter Hacks in Australia, with one judge placing her 1st) has gained her the position as reserve rider for the NSW Team to compete at the Nationals in December.
