Kirtlington rider Saskia Mohan has won a leading British show jumping award.
The promising 14-year-old, a member of the Central Junior Academy in Chichester, galloped her way to the NAF Shining Star for April.
Mohan was put forward for the honour by coach Mandy McGlynn, who said: “Saskia is a great team member and has competed in all of the team competitions over the last two years.
“She is always cheerful, a joy to teach and always keen to get involved.
“Last year she was awarded most improved rider at the Central Academy Awards.”
After joining British Showjumping in 2016 with her pony, Tiperonic, Saskia has for the past year been concentrating on developing a young pony, Ballyerk Cobalt.
She said: “I am so honoured to have been put forward for this award.
“I never thought that I would win, I am so happy. My big dream is to qualify for the Horse of the Year Show with my youngster.”
The NAF Shining Star Award is for junior academy members who have shown a great deal of commitment and progression in the sport.
Riders are nominated by their lead coach, and then judged and awarded by NAF to one person each month.
