I am Emma Watson, a 17 year old showjumper from the Waikato. I am a member of the ESNZ young rider squad and a Student at Morrinsville College.
I currently have a team of three horses with my main horse being Maddox Letino, an 11yr old thoroughbred X Gelding by Littorio. Together we have been Competing competitively at the Young Rider and Grand Prix. Our biggest achievements together so far have been, Placing 5th in the 2019-2020 NZ Young Rider series and having our first Horse Grand Prix win as well as several Young Rider wins and placings. My next horse is my Junior rider and 1.30m horse Maddox Kiwi Silverkee, 14 year old Holsteiner X Gelding by Kiwi Emillion. And the baby of the team is 6yr old Maddox Kingston GNZ, who is by Lordano out of a Grand Prix mare.
My goals for the 2020-2021 season are to be consistent and competitive at Young Rider and Horse Grand Prix on Maddox Letino. Be competitive in Junior Rider and 1.30m classes on Maddox Kiwi Silverkee. My goals with Maddox Kingston GNZ are to get him out to a few more shows and competing in low level showjumping.
Our horses all perform well on the Cortaflex HA, during the season we are constantly traveling and competing so i think it is really important that their joints are taken care of to prevent any wear and tear. Another favourite product is definitely the Like Ice Natural Clay which is something we use every weekend to maximise the recovery of the horses important joints and muscles.
