2019 NPS Scotland Bursary Winner 18 – 25 years – Nicola Lyon
A report from Nicola on how she has used the bursary…
Receiving the training bursary has been an amazing opportunity for Rohan and I. With the training bursary we have been travelling down to Perth for lessons with Kirsty Aird. During the lessons we have worked on improving Rohan’s paces and way of going for the showing world and started some jumping. These lessons have really given us the kick start we needed to improve our jumping.
I plan to carry on these lessons with Kirsty as she has been a massive help. With the help from Kirsty, Rohan and I have had some amazing results this year including being placed 9th at Blair Horse Trials in the NPS Novice Ridden M&M and being 1st on the MyQuest leaderboard for the U21 Prelim section in Scotland.
Thank you very much for providing me with this training bursary.
