Zara Adnams

When talking about rising stars, it's hard to go past Zara Adnams, who at just 11 years of age has a swag of titles under her belt.

Zara is the youngest ever Children's Champion, having jumped to victory in all three classes at the 2021 Equestrian Victoria Jumping State Championships.

Her horse Dingmac Disc King (Elvis) may only be 13.1hh, but their competitive partnership has seen them sweep the field against bigger competitors. At the heart of this incredible duo's success is a love of everything equestrian. Zara and Elvis are as happy out of the competition arena as they are in it. Most days you'll find the duo together, with training sessions 2-3 times per week.

Zara is inspired by the sport's top heroes and now finds herself in the enviable position of inspiring others.
