Katie Vaughan is a 16 year old rider who started her BSJA journey when she was 12 on her young pony which she produced from 70cm to Foxhunter in 2 years. Then at the age of 14 she moved onto horses due to her height and since then has competed and placed at national championships including Scope, Nationals and NSEA finals. Most of her riding career has been spent producing young horses up the ranks and this year she has started riding a new horse which she hopes will bring her up to the 1.30m level this year. Katie hopes to be able to compete in the international circuit next year at a high level and will progress her training on her 6-year-old protégé which she has been riding since he was 4.
