Briarcrest Middle School Student Named 2013 Rider Of The Year And Grand Champion In Pony Hunter Division
Kayla Benson, a 6th grade Honors student at Briarcrest Christian School, was recently awarded the honor of being named the 2013 Rider of the Year. Elly, her horse, and Kayla rode to top honors this past year while learning to work as a team and building a trust in each other that led them to excel in all of their divisions.
Kayla has been riding and jumping horses since she was two years old. Kayla and Elly competed in many schooling shows throughout 2013. Together, they excelled and led in the points for most of the year.
In addition to being awarded the prestigious Rider of the Year award, Kayla was also named the Grand Champion in the Pony Hunter division as well as the Grand Champion of the Pre-Children's/Adult division. She competed against many other riders of all ages from the tri-state area. Her passion for riding and jumping shines bright every time she rides.
Way to go Kayla and Elly!
