Early this year we had the great fortune to become connected with Noelle Roberts, an exciting Grand Prix rider primarily based out of the Southern California area. It did not take us long to learn that Noelle is not only a gifted horsewoman, but also an incredibly caring individual who spends a ton of her time giving back to the horse community and to the sport. We were so pleased to become one of her sponsors and to lend her our support!
An up and coming Grand Prix talent, as well as a National Champion on the Arabian Sport Horse Circuit, Noelle is definitely one to watch. Some of Noelle's accomplishments include:
- 2017 August Huntington Beach Summer Classic, Grand Prix, 4th
- 2017 July Huntington Surf Classic, Grand Prix, 9th
- 2017 April Galway Downs County Series, Open Jumpers 1.1m, 1st & 2nd
- 2017 March Galway Downs County Series, Open Jumpers 1.1m, 1st
- 2016 Arabian Hunter Rider of the Year
- 2016 National Champion Pure Bred Arabian Hack
- 2016 Reserve National Champion HA/AA Green Working Hunter
- 2016 Las Vegas National Division Reserve Champion Jumpers
- 2015 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show Reserve Champion HA/AA Sport Horse Under Saddle
- 2006 Reserve National Champion IHSA Collegiate Championship
As if her equestrian skill isn't enough to make Noelle standout in a crowd, Noelle is also passionate about helping youth become accomplished life long riders. Noelle helped establish the Scholastic Equestrian League and has acted as its Collegiate coordinator since inception, offering advice to high school aged riders on how to navigate the collegiate riding world and helping them get in contact with and riding spots on collegiate teams. Additionally, Noelle just recently became a mentor in Ride The Future, a non-profit program providing education and mentorship to kids and teenagers in their pursuit to help develop well-rounded equestrians.
Upon becoming a mentor, Noelle commented, "I wanted to be a part of Ride the Future because I am a rider that comes from a humble background and if it weren’t for the mentors in my life who rewarded my hard work and drive with letting me ride for them and teaching me, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I think it’s important to give back and bring along the next generation and teach them, and to reach out to those hard working kids give them opportunity to learn and advance in their riding careers. I want kids and young adults to know that you don’t have to have a ton of money to be competitive in this sport. Yes it helps, but you can get to your goals with hard work and determination."
We are so excited to be teamed up with Noelle as we both ride on into the future together!
