Kevin & Emma McNab
UK based Australian newly-weds, Kevin and Emma McNab are top-three-day event riders. Both have competed to top 10 finishes at four-star level events. The McNabs moved to the UK in late 2011 to further their competition careers. Between them they have ridden at every four-star event in the world – except Kentucky – both Kevin and Emma are determined to rectify this in the near future.
Upon leaving school Kevin McNab trained with top Australian rider Heath Ryan for four years before setting up his own business training riders and producing event horses – Kelecyn Equestrian Services. During this time, Kevin became established as both a top rider and trainer. He was long-listed for the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and was Australian national eventing points champion two-years running.
Since arriving full-time in the UK, Kevin has had several top 10 finishes at four-star level with horses including, Clifton Pinot and Fernhill Quality Street.
Emma McNab started riding when she was just three-years-old. Having progressed through pony-club and inter-school competitions, Emma was on the winning Australian Young Rider Trans Tasmin eventing team in 2006, a championship which she also finished in third place on her horse, Dotcom. Emma first started training with Kevin in 2004 and upon finishing school, based herself full time at Kelecyn. She contested her first four-star event (Adelaide) in 2011 and took 10th place riding Kelecyn Ice Age.
We here at Absorbine are very much looking forward to see this determined and talented couple realise their competitive ambitions.
