Young Rider of the Month: Brydee Andrew – sponsored by Filly & Co

10-year-old Brydee Andrew, has one motto.

“You won’t know until you try,” she says.

She has certainly, at her young age, practised what she’s preached. “I used to be afraid of camp-drafting, and I would cry,” she says, “but now I love it, and I’ve started team penning as well.”

Brydee competes on her beloved Quarter Horse, Magic. “He’s 11-years-old and he’s around 15.3 hh,” she says. “He has a beautiful white star and a long black tail.” It sounds as if his name suits him!

Brydee is in Year 4 at St. Laurence’s Primary School in Dubbo, and she’s been riding Magic for three years. “I actually started when I was only 18-months-old,” she says. “My ambition is to become a better rider and win blue ribbons for sporting at Pony Club – like my Dad did.”

Good on you Brydee!
