Showjump­ing course design among skills

Narrogin Observer - - News - AMY KIPPIN

Amy Kippin is one of WA’s young as­pir­ing of­fi­cials in the sport of showjump­ing.

Kippin is a na­tional level 2 show jump­ing judge and re­cently qual­i­fied as a na­tional level 1 course de­signer.

Grow­ing up in Woodanilling in the Great South­ern dis­trict, Kippin’s passion for showjump­ing was ig­nited at Jump Club events at the Katan­ning Eques­trian As­so­ci­a­tion.

Kippin has since re­lo­cated to Perth to fur­ther pur­sue her judg­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

She reg­u­larly of­fi­ci­ates at showjump­ing events in the Great South­ern, South West and Perth metropoli­tan ar­eas as well as pres­ti­gious WA events such as the Perth Royal Show and WA Show Jump­ing As­so­ci­a­tions Pa­trons Cup.

She also brings in­ge­nu­ity in her course de­sign­ing through work­ing with some of WA’s top course de­sign­ers and also vis­it­ing in­ter­na­tional course de­sign­ers.

Kippin en­joys com­ing back to the Wheat­belt/Great South­ern dis­tricts and en­joys see­ing rid­ers con­tinue to en­joy and ad­vance their skills in the sport of showjump­ing, of which the Wa­gin Gymkha­narama is a great event to en­cour­age this.
