Kelsey’s Story


My name is Kelsey Dodds, im 15years old and I live in Melbourne, Vic. I am a very passionate rider who has been involved in horses since I was 5years old. I am currently in ponyclub, HRCAV and EA competing in many disciplines from interschools, showing, eventing, showjumping and even mounted games. I have represented my club at state level in dressage, musical ride, showjumping and mounted games and this year my goal is to qualify for nationals for ponyclub and interschools.

I currently own a 15yr old 14.1hh Arab/saddle pony who is full of attitude but I love her to bits and wouldn’t have her any other way. I have had Elly for the past 5 years who took me from a beginner rider to a successful all round competitor in many different disciplines.

I also own a 8yr old 15.2hh OTT TB named Dan, who I got last year and who is just a pure gentleman in every way. He is my new eventer and showjumper who has great potential to take me to the higher levels of these chosen disciplines and hopefully to Nationals later this year.

My goal over the next 2 years is to ride at Nationals and ride my first 3DE at Melbourne International.

My passion is to work with young, uneducated horses as I like to bring them along and I love teaching them new things. My dream after I leave school is to become a Master Farrier and Equine Massage therapist and run my own business working with young horses.

I would like to thank Equine Pure for their generous sponsorship and choosing me to be an ambassador. Im very proud to be part of the Equine Pure team
