Our Featured Junior Rider for February is Ella MacDonald

Ella is thirteen and is in Ride 4. She joined Lancers at nine and has been riding for four years. What she enjoys most about Lancers is spending time with the horses. Her favourite horse is Rupert because he presents a challenge.

In her time at Lancers, Ella has participated in the Musical Ride, Junior Executive, hay deliveries, and training shows. She is very excited to join the new Lancer branch of Pony Club!

One of her favourite memories from Lancers is when she attended her first horse show. Although she entered with trepidation and thought the courses would be hard, she came out in first place!

When not riding, Ella also participates in gymnastics but she particularly enjoys riding at Lancers because she feels a greater sense of camaraderie with her fellow riders.
