Nineteen-year-old Pablo made dreams come true for Ava MacCoubrey
WELLINGTON – A dream came true for fourteen-year-old Canadian rider Ava MacCoubrey when she competed Pablo in Wellington last week. With the now nineteen-year-old Pablo, Ava competed in her first international dressage show for junior riders sections and started off with a victory and a second place.
The Prinsjesdag-sold Pablo (Cordial Medoc x Voltaire) contributed to Ava’s dream coming true. Thanks to the money of a fundraising, the young Canadian was able to compete in Wellington. Ava MacCoubrey does not come from a horse family at all, but her parents do anything to give her all the opportunities in dressage. “I have three jobs to pay for her riding,” Ava’s mother states. “It is my pleasure!”
Ava’s and Pablo’s goal for 2016 is to represent the Ontario Junior Team in Kentucky in July this year. With a score of 65.72 percent and 65.55 percent, respectively, and a win and a second place in Wellington, Ava and Pablo seem to be on the right track!
