Elloise Devlin - Equestrian

Elloise grew up on the Sunshine Coast where she developed a passion for horses and horse riding. 

Progressing through pony club, to interschool, and since 2010, open dressage competitions. In 2010, Elloise won her first state and national dressage titles at the interschool championships in Sydney, marking the beginning of a successful future to come.

In 2013, Elloise moved onto her mother’s (Sally) homebred 17.2hh gelding, Brimstone Anakiwa (aka Sam), who was broken in and trained by Sally (Devlin) up until Elloise took over the ride. The pair have progressed through the levels of Medium to competing in the Under 25 Grand Prix. Competing against professionals and international horses, the pair consistently place in state, national and internationally recognised competitions.

Elloise’s ultimate goal is to compete at the World Equestrian Games and/or the Olympics. The pair will be competing at the Australian National Dressage Championships at the Sydney International Equestrian Center in mid-October, to compete in the U25 Big Tour Championships.

In 2016 Elloise was awarded one of the five SAHOF Scholarships.

“I was genuinely shocked. I was so excited to hear that I had won this amazing opportunity. I had to keep asking them ‘are you serious’?”

“It’s going to be such a great chance to be able to get advice and the knowledge from someone that’s had the experience – even if it is in another discipline, it will help me understand so much more.”

Elloise has since travelled throughour Europe to train and expand her knowledge of the training of dressage.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
