My name is Kirra Reynolds, I am 18 years old and I currently live in the Northern Territory. I had somewhat of a late start to horses, but once I got involved, I dove in head first! I started out on a young thoroughbred mare, who I blame (and thank) for my affinity with the breed today.
In my first year of competition in the show ring, I was ecstatic to qualify both myself and my horse for EA and Show Horse Council Nationals where I placed 3rd in my EA Nationals rider class. After a few more successful years in the show ring, I opted for a change of scenery and began showjumping, which I found more challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. I competed in the 2017 and 2018 showjumping seasons with my two warmblood mares, ‘Vivienne’ a 13 year old by Vivant and 'Hollaback Gurl’ a 6 year old by a Voltaire stallion.
I am thrilled to say that I have reached all of my goals in 2018, and I have learnt and achieved so much thanks to my little team of horses. I am incredibly excited to see the goals and opportunities that 2019 will bring me as a Petite Horse & Rider Ambassador.
