Kiara started riding when she was 8 years old and her love for riding grew. She began with showing and equitation and then moved on to the showjumping. As a child and pony rider she won many equitation titles on the National circuit and at SANESA. This gave Kiara a good understanding of all the disciplines and led her to be successful at the jumping! She now trains with Joanne Van Achterberg at Kincardine.

She currently competes in the Junior 1.10m classes and has three super horses this year, Erreplus Lindor, Erreplus On Fire and Erreplus Casper. Kiara is currently lying 2nd and 6th on the Junior 1.10m rankings with her two horses! Her goal for this year is to jump 1.20m successfully.
