Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport - Therese Col­man

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.
