NPS Scotland Bursary for age 18 – 25 years is awarded to Leona Jade Clark
The committee of NPS Scotland are delighted to announce that Leona Jade Clark from Edinburgh has been awarded a £150 bursary towards further training.
Leona Jade has been involved with native ponies from an early age either competing, grooming or showing in particular Connemara, Exmoor or Fell ponies. Currently she has a young Connemara gelding who she has backed and is looking at competing in novice ridden level with him this year. In time she aims to do Open Ridden and Working Hunter classes. She is hoping to use the bursary for jumping lessons and to further their education.
Alongside a passion of competing Native Breeds Leona has a love of photographing them. Examples of her work can be found at the following website: www.leonajclark.wixsite.com/lclarkphotography
She is passionate about the promotion of native ponies, championing them for their versatility and range of character, and enjoys show casing this through photography.
We wish Leona Jade all the best and hope the bursary helps her with her further training.
Well done, and good luck.
The Committee of NPS Scotland
