Hi my name is Jerrin Nelson and I am 10 years old.
I am a third-generation member of Rainbow Saddle Club and have been a member of the Club all of my life. I am in 3rd grade at Bridgewater Elementary here in Northfield. My favorite subject in school is art. In addition to riding horse I play hockey for one of the Northfield Hockey Association’s Squirt teams. I also help with our small family business, Nelson’s Pumpkin Farm. I am learning to help run equipment in the field with my dad, mom and sister and I help with our fall harvest, sales and deliveries.
This show season I will be showing off my improved riding skills on my two ponies in as many game classes and shows as possible. Last season my goal was to be able to run all of my events on my own and I was quite successful. I hope to make it to Champ Show again this year and come away with a better finish than last year – Dixie didn’t want to cooperate when we got into the arena and put on a rearing fest. This year I will be riding Dixie a 9-year-old Welsh Pony as well as Cassie an 11-year-old Quarter Pony that my sister grew out of after last year. I also participate in Rainbow’s Leisure Riding program and look forward to adding as many hours as I can in the saddle this year getting even stronger and faster during this season on my ponies in the round pen at Grandma and Grandpa’s as well as at the Rainbow Saddle Club Arena or riding around the block with Grandma and my sister, Sabrina.
In my free time I like to play with my toy horses, rollerblade or anything I can find to do outside. I also have a Holland-Lop bunny, Ellie, and love to play with my cats Sammy and Mika and my dogs Maya who is a Miniature Pinscher and TyTy who is a Doberman Pinscher.
I would like to represent Rainbow Saddle Club as this year's Junior Prince and show kids that any goal can be achieved with plenty of hard work and determination.
