All About Katie Lund

Dressage Rider

 

Rider Name: Katie Lund
Hometown: Gold Coast, QLD, Australia
Place of Birth: Gold Coast, QLD, Australia
Birthday: 10th October 1995

Main Discipline: Dressage

Favourite Place: In the Saddle 

My Average Day: my average day would be up early to work, then off to uni then spending the late afternoon with my horses training, grooming, feeding and some afternoons also teaching. 

My day off: I spend my days off training, studying and teaching. 

Sponsored Horse: Leadburn Sundance (Butch); 9 year old, bay, warmblood gelding by Sunny Boy and out of a Falkland Victory mare. 

Best thing about my horse: Butch is a character, he is very gentle and always tries his hardest. He never wants to disappoint and does everything to the best of his ability. 

2018 horse goals: Increasing Butch's workload after his injury in 2017 and getting out to more compeitions, hopefully starting his small tour career.

Biggest achievements to date: our biggest achievements together have been progressing through the levels to Prix St George. In 2016 Leadburn Sundance and I were selected on the State Young Rider Squad and at the end of the year were awarded Advanced Young Rider of the Year at the Dressage Queensland Annual Awards evening for our performances at advanced level which was an amazing end to 2016. 

"I can’t thank Karen and Pet Acutherapy Gold Coast for their support and keeping Leadburn Sundance in peak condition. Also a huge thank you to my coaches Tor and Mel Van Den Berge for the guidance throughout our journey."
