Nedz Junior Ambassador - Anya Cooper

My name is Anya, an I am 15 years old and currently studying for my GCSE’s this year. I am extremely proud to become a NEDZ Junior brand ambassador and very thankful to be given this amazing opportunity.  

JJ is a 14.2hh 11-year-old Connemara, that I did ride across all disciplines, until recently when I decided to bite the bullet and join BD to do dressage full time. I decided to start focusing on my dressage more as we have put an immense amount of work into his flat work and all the hard work is now beginning to show in his work at home, so going out and competing is hugely rewarding. 

JJ came to us in June 2015 with near enough no dressage experience, but with the help of our trainers Nick Bigland and Ulrik Molgaard, we are now successfully competing at Novice Level. I love riding JJ because it is incredibly rewarding to see his progress from when he arrived with us to now and to see how much he enjoys his work on a daily basis, in whatever discipline.

My aims for this year are to compete at the PetPlan Area Festival at Prelim and Novice in the summer and to hopefully move up to elementary in the autumn.  In the future, I would love to keep competing JJ in the time I have left on him and improving his work at home to see where it will take us! 

I am really looking forward to seeing what this season will bring us and I am forever grateful for NEDZ and their continued support. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this, Anya x
