Show Jumping New Zealand and the Bay of Plenty (BOP) Area are thrilled to announce the BOP Area recipient of the ESNZ and NZPH Star Spotters Scholarship, Abby Hindmarch.

Abby is year 8 at Whakatane Intermediate School. Abby has been riding for 5 years, and first started competing in 2019 at local events such as dressage and low level pony club events. This year she has entered Tauranga Show Jumping Comps and also One Day Events,
and dressage. Abby, loves show jumping and one day events!

Abby rides Huey a 13 year old, 15.2 bay stationbred gelding. Abby and Huey have been a combination for just over a year. Abby very kindly lends Huey to her local Riding for the Disabled to use while she is at school so many other children get to enjoy him.

Abby’s goals for this season are to compete up to 1m showjumping and to learn about and compete in showhunter. Abby also wants to be able to learn to ride with more control and leg aids and get Huey working consistently with an adjustable stride.

Abby and BOP Area are extremely grateful to ESNZ  and NZPH for this opportunity.
