Kelsey Russell – Elite Young Rider

I am 21 years old, currently studying pre vet at Central Florida. I hope to transfer to University of Florida for vet school. This is my last competition as a young rider. Throughout my young rider career, I have had the amazing opportunity of representing our wonderful country at three world championships. I have been on the SE team several times at national and regional championships. I won gold at NAJYRC two times, 2011 and 2015; when I also received best condition. From competing with young riders as well as the adults, I am continually learning how to improve as a horseman, as well as an individual. I am looking forward to entering into adulthood, and competing alongside those whom I have watched over the years.
