Sophie Taylor (YR)
Welcome Brand Ambassador Sophie Taylor
Hello my name is Sophie Taylor, I am 13 years old and live on the beautiful Surf Coast in Victoria.
I fell in love with ponies at a friends birthday party. I then went to riding school and was lucky enough to have my first pony when I was 7. At pony club I realised my passion was for dressage and I am now a member of the Victorian Young Rider Dressage Development Squad.
I have had a couple of amazing ponies, and now have my dream pony Raven Lodge Aura aka 'Emma'. Emma is a 13.2hh Pinto Pony and is 11, together we have been a team for a year.
In 2016 Emma and I qualified and competed at the Victorian Dressage Festival in Pony Novice, the 2016 Victorian Pinto State Championships where we were sashed Smartest On Parade along with a number of Reserve Champions and 1st placings. I have already competed at the 2017 Victorian Youth Dressage Championships with a placing in the Open Pony Novice Class.
This year I have set quite a few goals and we will be competing at dressage competitions at Pony Club, Interschools and EA along with showing in Pinto Classes.
2017 Competition Results:
Congratulations Sophie and Emma for a wonderful start in their first Elementary Dressage test.
