My name is Ella Pusterla and I am a 20yo Eventer based on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
I began riding from a very young age, helping mum with our school horses and
educating young OTTBs, no doubt igniting my passion for working with horses ever since.
As a 13 year old I was lucky enough to have a horse, Bvlgari, who helped me go from competing PC Grade 3 to 2* level; a real kickstart in my eventing career.
Some of proudest achievements include so far include;
2015 PC Rider of the Year
2017 Top Ten Young Rider of the Year for Eventing
Completing an FEI CIC**
Representing Victoria at a National Level twice
Producing my own horse to 1* level (The Honey Badger)
2018 Team Victoria CT Captain
After 5 solid years of competing at the higher levels and after completing my VCE studies in 2018, I took a short break from riding to travel.
Among studying full-time, I am now re-educating an Off the Track Thoroughbred Mare, who I bought at the start of 2020 as a green 7 year old. Starting at Eva65, and now about to complete her first Eva95, I am excited to continue producing her up through the levels, and aim to be back in the * levels in the near future.
I am so grateful to have had the continual support of Jin Stirrup, among my other sponsors, and truly believe I would not be where I am today without them. It is a privilege to be apart of the JS team, and I so look forward to the 2021 season ahead!
