13-year-old Madison Heath from Nantwich continues to take the world of showjumping by storm, having been selected to represent Great Britain in the Nations Cup in Fontainebleau, France
Madison is the one of the six riders that have been selected for the Children squad who are sponsored by NAF. She will be competing with Venus III, a 16-year-old chestnut gelding, which is owned by her father, Graham Heath.
The youngster is no stranger to the international competition arena, having been selected previously to represent her country in pony competitions.
The Children, Junior and Young Rider Nations Cups competitions all take place from 3rd – 6th May, with the Children’s Nations Cup taking place on Saturday 5th May whilst the Junior and Young Rider Nations cup will be on Friday 4th May. The Grand Prix’s will all take place on Sunday 6th May. For more information about the show visit http://www.grandprix-classic.com/spring-break/
Madison has already earned an impressive list of accolades having recently been awarded the leading rider title at POYS at the start of April 2018.
Speaking about her selection, Madison said: “I’ve only just recently moved onto riding horses, but I’ve always had ambitions for European Championships, so I am absolutely delighted to have been selected for the squad. The next few weeks are going to be filled with training and preparation, but I am ready for the challenge.”
Whilst Madison benefits from the tremendous support of her family, Show Jumping is a notoriously expensive sport and competing at the highest level requires significant investment. Madison is therefore seeking the support of sponsors to help her achieve her ultimate ambition of competing at Olympic level.
