  • Anna Kellnerova
  • Competing for: Czech Republic
  • Age: 22

Anna began competing at the age of 12. In 2011 she resided in England, where she trained under Kenneth Clawson however now trains in Prague, Czech Republic.

From a young age, Anna always loved horses and being around them. Because nobody in her family was connected to them in any way, she would beg her mother to take her and see them when ever she had the opportunity. They would drive through the country side and if they spotted a stable, would knock on their door and ask if she could help them on the yard. After a while her parents realised that Anna's passion for horses was blossoming, and she joined a pony club at the age of twelve. Anna's first experience in international sport came at the age 15. 

At the same time, she began to train with the British trainer Kenneth Clawson and completed residency training in England where she also competed. In September 2011, she moved on to a new partnership with trainer Marek Javorský. Together they won two championship titles in the junior category (teams in 2012 with Zonny and individuals in 2013 with Curley Sue). In 2013, she participated in the European Junior Championship with Kashmir and in the same year she also started competing in the top Czech cup series within the Czech Jumping Cup. 

Thanks to the incredible support from her family as well as her closest friends, Anna was able to slowly gain more experience, jump in her first Nations Cup at the age of 19 with her boys Baccara  and Kashmir, and work her way up in the sport. Now with the opportunity of attending the GCL and LGCT, she is enjoying being able to compete at the highest level in the sport with her great horses in the amazing locations on the Championship.
