Riverside equestrian rider Kerryn Golder won the Champion Equestrian Turnout at last week's Royal Adelaide Show.
Golder and her horse
Moet produced the ride of their lives to win the highly-acclaimed competition.
They finished with 174 points out of a total of 200.
The entrants were judged on a number of categories including costume, riding ability, general appearance and grooming.
Golder said it was a great feeling after putting countless hours of work and preparation into the event.
"On a normal day I would be up at 6am," she said.
"Before and after work I ride my horse, clean the stables and make sure the horses are fed at the right time.
"It's certainly full-on preparation, but I really love it and I want to put everything I can in, to succeed."
Golder labelled the win as the highlight of her equestrian career.
"It was really nice to be recognised and rewarded I was just thrilled to win," she said.
She left for Melbourne yesterday to compete in her next event, the Royal Melbourne Show, in a bid to win the Garryowen Trophy.
Following the competition in Melbourne, she will take part in the Wimmera equestrian circuit.
