Keira Nygaard is a 14-year-old amateur rider from San Diego, California. She competes in the 3’0” equitation with her warmblood Encasso D, and the 2’6” hunters and .90 jumpers with her two OTTBs, Arkenstone and Latitude. Both of her Thoroughbreds were raced by her parents, with Latitude being bred by her parents as well. She has loved working with them and helping them adjust to a second career. She competed in Lexington on Judge Johnny (JJ), a 5 year old owned by the 2015 RRP dressage winner Carleigh Fedorka. Last year, JJ was the highest placed 4 year old Thoroughbred in the country in training level eventing. Keira was proud to be the top fundraiser of the Real Rider Cup last year, raising $9,560. She is hoping to reach or surpass that again this year.
