Help 10 year old Tahnia achieve her show-jumping goals
Red Oaks primary school pupil Tahnia Jones is proving to be a young star of the equestrian world, after coming second in the Pony of the Year Show in April and reaching the finals of both the Royal International Horse Show and the Horse of the Year Show to be held later this year.
Explaining Tahnia’s riding career so far her Mum Julie said: “We got Tahnia a loan pony when she was five and she started showing it, but she got bored and we found the judging to be very subjective.
“When she started jumping she absolutely loved it and the partnership she built with her pony is really strong. Dandy is an honest little pony who wants to do his job. Tahnia has got a lot of belief in him and always goes out wanting to win the class.”
Tahnia is dedicated to her sport and goes riding every day after school. But it’s Julie who gets up each morning to do the mucking out. She said: “I leave the house at 5am and get back by quarter to seven to wake Tahnia for school. It’s hard work and expensive.
“As parents we both work full-time and run two other businesses to finance Tahnia’s riding. It would be great to find a sponsor who could support Tahnia, especially with some high profile events coming up this year.”
