Kinch going places
BARBADIAN equestrian rider Emily Kinch continues to make a name for herself on the international scene.
Quite recently the young and very promising rider completed three weeks of keen competition at Horses On The Bay in Michigan, United States.
She entered in the junior and amateur class 1:30-metre division during the first two weeks and emerged champion rider in that division on two different horses.
She was declared winner in her division three times over the three-week period and also placed on several occasions.
Rinch was also expected to compete in Toronto at Caledon Equestrian Park and in Ottawa for the last week in their series.
Her trainer, Kim Farlinger, herself a winner in the Grand Prix and also a gold medallist at the Junior Young Rider a few years back, commended Kinch on her performances.
Farlinger said Kinch was handling the challenging courses in the Grand Prix arenas well on her horses.
She noted that while it would normally take riders a few months generally to receive ribbons in the Grand Prix arena, Kinch had ridden exceptionally well to be in winner’s row.
Farlinger believes if Kinch continues in her present form, she will definitely be a strong challenger in the Junior Young Rider Classics next year.
