Welcome to the Hy Equestrian Sponsored Riders team! This group of athletes are fulfilling their goals with the help of Hy.
Alex Postolowsky started riding when she was only 3 years old, doing all the usual Pony Club activities before then moving into Working Hunter Ponies. Alex had many successes in this discipline and competed several times at RIHS and HOYS. Alex’s most notable achievement in this field was gaining a place on the England Team.
After this, Alex made a switch to Eventing and started with a 14.2hh and a 16.2hh! Alex’s first real success was winning the Pony Club Championships with Diplomatic Jack and from there the pair were on an upward spiral, resulting in British Young Rider Eventing Team selection. Alex was also chosen on her other ride Flint Curtis whom she took to the European Championships to gain Team Silver. To this day Alex continues to succeed, promoting the Hy brand everywhere she goes.
Having ridden from an early age, Emma grew up on the hunting field. Her Mum hired horses out for hunting and it became Emma’s job to make sure they were competent jumpers. This is what started her passion for cross country riding.
She then gained three A levels and went to work for a Leadership Development company, firstly as PA to the MD and latterly as head of their sales team. Although successful and lucrative, her passion is horses. She resigned in 2009 in order to devote time to her eventing career, which has taken off ever since. Standing out with her love of all things pink, Emma now travels the country to compete with the Hy brand by her side!
Sharn began her equestrian life dabbling in a bit of everything, but fell in love with showing age 16, when she was asked to lead a pony for a friend in a showing class. In 2013, she achieved her big break with Thistledown Livius, winning junior champion at the RIHS. Having gone on to win the lead rein show pony title at HOYS with Hollybush Enchantment, Sharn simply hasn’t looked back. She now works full time as a show pony producer and its in heavy demand!
