Alicia Keen is awarded the NAF Shining Star Award for May
Thursday 16 June 2011
Thirteen year old Alicia has been a regular member of Northamptonshire Academy since 2010 and was nominated for this award by the lead coach Mia Korenika. Mia nominated Alicia as her commitment to her ponies and the sport go above and beyond. The hours of care and dedication she puts in around her schooling is phenomenal.
Alicia commented "to receive the NAF shining star award was such a fantastic surprise as to be awarded for something that I love doing is unbelievable"
Tracey Lloyd, NAF (Natural Animal Feeds) commented, “We are so delighted to be supporting British Showjumping’s young enthusiastic talent who want to improve their standard of riding and horsemanship to further their progression in the sport, as well as the coaches that go that extra mile to encourage the development of riding standards in the Junior Membership.’
The NAF Shining Star Award was introduced when NAF became a British Showjumping Business Partner. The award is for members of a Junior Academy who have shown a great deal of commitment, progression and outstanding behaviour along with their riding ability and much more. Riders are nominated by their lead coach, and then judged and awarded by NAF to one person each month.
