BYRDS Eastern

Autumn  Bursary Award 

18/11/14

This Autumn the Equestrian Learning Academy teamed up with the British Young Dressage Riders Scheme (BYRDS) Eastern Region to offer a £200 training bursary to be awarded to one of their young riders who shows the commitment, perserverance and dedication to her sport. The recipient awarded by the BYRDS team after the Autumn Training Camp was 15 year old Leanne Kerry and her Hanoverian Mare Royal Rival.

 

Leanne is a real prospect and it has been quite a journey. Joining BYRDS in 2012 she has had a great 2014. She was a team member of the Inter county team (Cambs) winning team, winner of the Home international Novice, was 2nd in the warm up home international with a score of 74% and as the youngest rider (with the youngest horse she was 2nd in the Junior Derby at Sheepgate under 25 Nationals 2014.

 

"I have a love and passion for dressage," admits Leanne who is trained by Eleanor Collins. "My dream is to compete for my country one day."  

 

Her story with Royal Rival started three years ago when her Grand parents saved and acquired the unbroken three year old for their Granddaughter which Leanne has subsequently brought on herself.

"She was first sat on in April 2012 and been bought on slowly to strengthen and mature," says Leanne who now competes at Elementary level and is rightly proud of her achievements to date. "BYRDS has given me opportunities and I am grateful for the support my trainers have given me. My horse is a testament to what you can achieve with dedicated trainers hard work and patience.

 

"I am extremely grateful for the support and recognition from the trainers who have chosen me to receive the bursary from the Equestrian Learning Academy."

 

The Equestrian Learning Academy has a terrific relationship with Eastern Region and several BYRDS members have become Apprentices  with employment opportunities assisted by the Academy.  In the meantime we are delighted for Leanne and look forward to hearing how she progresses in the future.
