Variety scholarship for horse lover
MONICA Steiner believes her daughter Jasmin’s passion for horse riding has led to her success in eventing.
Kewdale resident Jasmin Steiner (18) received a $3500 Variety Heart Scholarship this month to help with costs of training and buying outfits.
Miss Steiner was born with 18p Syndrome, which has had intellectual and development impacts but it has not stopped her from succeeding.
Among her honours at the WA Special Olympics last year was a first place finish in the dressage categories and a trophy for the highest score and being nominated for the 2017 WA Disabled Sports Association team of the year.
Miss Steiner trains once per week at the Therapeutic Riding Centre in Mt Claremont and the Riding for the Disabled Association WA’s facility in Carine.
Mrs Steiner said her daughter had been riding horses since she was 11.
“I think her talent comes from the fact she likes riding and she is patient,” she said.
Mrs Steiner said she was thankful to Variety and her coaches for assisting her daughter.
“Jasmin’s goal is to one day compete in the Special Olympics National Games,” she said.
Jasmin Steiner is enjoying success in eventing.
