Sponsored Riders - Sarah & Olive Cronin
My Name is Sarah Cronin I live in New Zealand I have grown up with horses, breeding a few ponies and producing a number of ponies to HOY titles and representing New Zealand in Australia at the EA Nationals in Werribee in 2012.
Now with my daughter Olive Cronin riding, the focus is currently on lead rein (soon to be moving into first year ridden). Olive has had a very successful introduction to showing, with her two ponies Chelton Ambitious, aka Pedro, and Cedar Park Regal Man, aka Cedar. She has gained a number of big wins in her first seasons out including winning the South Island Premier Show Champion Lead Rein Title the last 2 years with Cedar and winning the Champion lead rein at the New Zealand Agricultural Show.
Both Ponies and Olive Qualified for the Grand Nationals in Sydney for 2019 but unfortunately they can't make it this time but hope to in the future.
Olive started riding at the age of 2 with her first pony Charlie Brown, he was a Shetland and was a little bit cheeky but always a great entertainer.
Olive enjoys going to pony club with her ponies and has great fun jumping at home so I'm sure this will be a focus in the years to come.
Showing is a real passion for me, as I just love turning horses out to absolute perfection and making them shine in the ring.
I love going into a paddock and picking a diamond in the rough and turning it into something quite special. It's amazing what a make over and conditioning can do.
We are super excited to be sponsored by Peter Williams, I have been wearing these Jodhpurs for as long as I can remember. The quality is second to none and they last a lifetime!
