Show Jumping New Zealand and the Central Districts Area are thrilled to announce the Central Districts Area recipient of the ESNZ and NZPH Star Spotters Scholarship, Isla Carver. 

Isla is 8 years old and has enjoyed riding since she was tiny.   She attends Wanganui Petre Pony Club where she passed her D+ cert at the end of last season and aims to sit her C certificate this season.

Isla loves all sorts of riding particularly hacking around the farm on her pony Milo and enjoyed having a go at hunting this winter.  Since beginning to ride Miss Eve at the start of winter she has been lucky enough to be encouraged by some wonderful coaches and friends and is enjoying her first taste of show hunter.

She is looking forward to getting out and competing this season and is very excited and grateful to be given the opportunity to participate in registered events.

Isla’s main goal this season is to qualify for HOY and have fun with Miss Eve along the way.

Miss Eve is a 12 year old Welsh/quarter horse/TB cross who was originally bred for mounted games.  Although Eve proved too slow for this she loves to jump as much as Isla does.  Eve is a genuine kind safe pony who makes up in heart what she lacks in speed and she has quickly formed a great bond with Isla.

We wish Isla all the best for a fun and successful season and kind regards from ESNZ Jumping and NZPH.
