Anderson riding high after great year competing in dressage
NEXT year will be vastly different for local dressage rider Indiana Anderson after her 2015 season finished earlier this month.
Anderson, who is part of the junior young riders Queensland squad for 2015, competed at Toowoomba in the recent state pony dressage titles.
She would finish first in the elementary pony, the medium pony, and medium freestyle classes at the event with her horse Mister Crescendo.
The wins added to what has already been a busy 2015 with the Bundaberg rider also competing and doing well in interschool national and state titles.
Anderson says it has been a busy year.
"It has been an amazing and full on year so far," she said.
"I've had some good results and been proud of our achievements."
The focus now though will be different for Indiana.
Next year she will complete her Year 12 studies and also attempt to train a new pony for competition.
With aims to do well in her studies, competition events will be at a minimum in 2016.
"I won't be travelling so much next year," Anderson said.
"With the training of a new pony next year the aim as well, it will be tough to replicate my success from this year."
Despite the distractions Anderson hopes to be selected once again for the young riders squad.
"It was a privilege this year to be selected," she said.
"I hope to be rewarded for my efforts this year with selection once again in 2016."
