Show Jumping New Zealand and the By of Plenty (BOP) Area are thrilled to announce the BOP Area recipient of the ESNZ and NZPH Star Spotters Scholarship, McKenna Parker.
McKenna is a 15 year old showjumper based in Tauranga. She has two horses but her top steed, Chilli, is ready to step up to the bigger shows. Chilli is a 15.2 clydesdale/stationbred/arab 7 year old gelding who she brought up from scratch. So far she has competed up to 1.05m on him with placings and wishes to push herself and the horse further with this seasons goal to be competing up to 1:15. She is an advanced rider who simply wants to experience the bigger, more competitive shows with a view to one day being a professional showjumper.
McKenna will be mentored by Paul Croucher and Viki Sheratt.
We wish McKenna all the best for a fun and successful season and kind regards from ESNZ Jumping and NZPH.
