Charlotte is now making the move on to the challenge of horses, allowing her sister the opportunity to ride the lovely Archie. Charlotte hopes to qualify for the amateur classes, second rounds and children on horse’s classes now and she will remain a much valued part of Berkshire and Oxfordshire Junior Academy.
When she was told of her award Charlotte said:
“I was so surprised to get this award as there are other members of our Academy whom I would have thought to be more worthy. What I love about being a member of the academy is that you are training and learning but it takes all the pressure off as every session is different and fun and you get to do it with your friends! I would like to thank our lead coach Sharon Quant, as I have thoroughly enjoyed training with her throughout the year. I am so pleased that I have Archie as he has been able to build my confidence and take me to the next level.”
Melissa Newman, NAF Brand Manager, added:
“It is so nice to see that Charlotte is encouraging of her friends and team mates, being positive is such an important aspect when it comes to progressing in sport and is evident in her latest results. It is lovely to hear that the academy would not manage without her! Well done on being a deserving Shining Star Charlotte.”
Charlotte will kindly receive some NAF equine products to use alongside the supplements that she currently uses, which include; in the Pink Powder which offers her ponies’ nutritional support for the gut to keep then in perfect jumping condition.
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.
