Local champ rider at the Show
Margaret River’s Anna Johnson was named Champion Senior Rider at the Perth Royal Show on Saturday.
Contestants braved wet and windy weather to compete across multiple dressage events on the long weekend.
Johnson also took out first place in the Reserve Champion Novice Hack on Friday and Reserve Champion Show Hunter Galloway on Monday.
Johnson said conditions were rough and competition was strong for the champion senior rider category.
“I’m really happy to win such a big event at the Perth Royal Show this year,” she said.
“The conditions were really wet but I had a great day.”
Johnson is key dressage and showhorse coach at Evolution Equestrian Margaret River, and led her team at the show.
Johnson has been competing in the show ring since she was five and has only missed one Perth Royal Show because of exams.
She will compete at the Show Horse Council Horse of the Year in Serpentine in October.
