Monday 09 May 2011
Annabelle Waters, from Surrey Junior Academy nominated by British Showjumping coach Corinne Bracken.
Annabelle had one of the most difficult horses when she first came to the Academy.
Her patience and determination to make this horse work for her has paid off and she has gone from knocking 12 cross poles down in one of her first lessons to jumping double clears round 1.15m classes.
Her commitment to training this mare and to her academy deserves to be recognised. She has attended regularly with all the academy coaches and the decision to nominate her was one we all agreed on without question.
Well done to Annabelle and her hard work we hope you further your success into the future.
