Meet and keep up to date with all our ESNZ & NZPH star spotter recipients for 2020-2021 season!
ESNZ Jumping are excited to have the grass roots project back this season- the Star Spotters Scholarship.
The twenty area groups around New Zealand have been given the opportunity to select one young person who shows the attributes of being a rider with a great future in our sport. The Star Spotters Scholarship recipients have received a year’s ESNZ rider membership, a year of equine registration and a jumping discipline registration.
We are so grateful to New Zealand Performance Horse’s sponsorship of this project, which has enabled these twenty riders to be identified and encouraged into our sport. ESNZ and NZPH would like to congratulate these future stars!
