					Rider Profile: Aleisha Padroth

It all started when I was 6 yrs old when I was receiving lessons from a dressage instructor
(Joy Charlton) and also competiting in the pony ring and pony club with my grey welsh
gelding “breakfast” and on the side riding John and Joy Tyler’s Babito Or an Appaloosa
Mare in the Led line classes at western shows.

I then feel in love with western so much that I purchased my first Quarter horse Kingaroy
whom I competed on only at local level, it was then that I realized that I needed that
something bit more and then I purchased Hot Roc and 2004 was the first nationals that I
competed on him at. Even though it was my first nationals I was able to place in 2/3
events that I entered against some of Australia’s best. I Have continued to show Hot Roc
(Chub) all this time, competiting in all the traditional western events and just to show his
skill also excelling at other disciplines, like barrels, jumping, sporting and hacking.

Doing all I could with little Chub I decided to see whether I was capable to handle a
young one, so that’s when we bought a two year old which was Winderadeen Mona Lisa,
Diva hadn’t received as much training like all the other two year olds in her age bracket
despite that she is coming along nice and places well at little shows and also placed in
most of her events at last years nationals.

Not only have a ridden my own horses, but also had great opportunities to ride other great
Quarter horses and other breeds. I have competed at Paint Nationals and Appaloosa state
show and came home with places and some wins.

This is my last season as a youth, I started out just like any one else…. as a beginner, I
toughed it out and I have enjoyed all the experiences of being a youth and where it has
taken me it just goes to show that dreams do come true, My dreams have come true with
all the opportunities I have received with owning horses. I have achieved many things
that I’m proud of like State, NPHA and national titles, excelling at other disciplines with
just the same horse, doing most of the training my self with Diva and most important the
best opportunity I have ever got which was representing Australia at the 2008 youth
world cup where I made the finales in my horsemanship class and rode the “tough one”
that no one else would.
