Ava Makes History for School
Local Ava Hagelburg recently competed at her first Arndell Anglican College Interschool Equestrian Carnival at Hawkesbury Showground in Clarendon, representing Emu Plains Public School with her horse, KT Sweet Dreams.
The dedicated year five student was the first ever competitor to represent her school in the sport of Equestrian Show Riding, making it one memorable moment for the local community.
“I was nervous but also excited to compete and represent Emu Plains Public School at the event” explained Ava.
Ava has only been training with her Coach and step mum Chloe Smith seriously for six months. “She has shown the utmost dedication to her sport. Ava is up early to feed and pamper her animals and works at home to earn money to support her love of the sport” said Chloe.
With only a short time of riding, Ava’s enthusiasm has earned her a major sponsor in the equine field, Kaso Saddle Pads. Their generosity helped boost the local girl to the top of her category, earning her Overall Supreme Exhibit in the Novice ring at the Arndell Anglican College Interschool Equestrian Carnival. Ava’s horse KT Sweet Dreams AKA Kitty, was perfect with her guidance and beautifully presented by her Coach and step mum Chloe.
“We would like to thank Emu Plains Public School for allowing Ava to compete and their support shown. There are now more competitions that Ava can compete in throughout the year and hopefully we can see more avid riders join her” ended Chloe.
