Ella Pusterla

Hi all,

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!
