Our Sponsored Rider Montana Jonker, Arcadia NSW
Hi, my name is Montana Jonker and I am 18 years old and live in Arcadia, NSW.
I have had a passion for horses for as long as I can remember! I love horses and everything to do with them.
I left school at the end of Year 10, due to ongoing health battles I have had since I was 13. I went to TAFE and Studied the Certificate 3 in Performance Horses for 12 months then the Certificate 3 in Racing - track riding. I was nominated for the TAFE Student of the Year - Agribusiness whilst doing my courses. I am now working full time as a track rider in the racing industry and live waking up everyday to go to work. I have aspirations in the future to become a jockey and a trainer.
I love competing in dressage, mounted games and sporting... in truth , I love it all from hacking to jumping and everything in between. I go to pony club and enjoy everything that is offered there , and the local Adult riding clubs and the friends I have also made .
I am part of the 2019 National Champion Senior Mounted Games Team with my pony, Obie One Kanobie , and National Senior Quiz Champion.
I compete at local, zone , State and National level. Prior to Covid 19 I was hoping to be selected to go to the UK to compete on the Australian Senior Quiz Team.
I have 6 horses from 8hh to 17 hh and use them for all different disciplines.
