Showjumper Emily Smart has been awarded the NAF Shining Star award for February.

THIRTEEN-year-old Emily Smart from Banwell, has much to smile about after being awarded the NAF Shining Star for February.

All British Showjumping Junior Academy members are eligible for nomination for this award and it was Emily’s dedication and enthusiasm that shone through for coach Anne Newbery.

Anne is a UKCC Level 2 coach and she nominated Emily for the award. She said: “Emily is a keen and friendly member of the Bristol and Somerset Junior Academy and is always ready to welcome and talk to both existing and new members.”

Becoming a member of the Bristol & Somerset Junior Academy when it first started some 18 months ago, allowed Emily to take advantage of the progressive training available as she loves to jump.
