Georgina Burchmore-Eames who’s 16-years-old from Hertfordshire, has proved she is truly deserving of the NAF Shining Star Award for August 2016 after displaying a willingness to learn and support others.
Introduced when NAF became a British Showjumping Business Partner, the NAF Shining Star Award is for members of a Junior Academy who have shown a great deal of commitment, progression and outstanding behaviour along with their riding ability.
Mandy Mcglynn the Lead Coach for the Central Region Junior Academy nominated Georgina for this special award. “Georgie has been a member of the academy since she was riding 128cm ponies. She’s always willing to help when asked, often offering before being asked! Her ponies and horses are always turned out to a high standard and she has been rewarded with many successes in the ring; she’s definitely one to watch for the future,” says Mandy.
Having joined British Showjumping in 2008 Georgina has since grown in confidence and ability leading to her qualifying for a number of Championships over the years. She has been able to progress in the sport due to having the opportunity of riding a range of ponies and being supported by Mandy and the Central Region Academy.
Georgina will receive some NAF equine products to use alongside the supplements that she currently uses.
