Thirteen-year-old show jumper Jessica Mendoza has been nominated for BBC West Young Sports Personality of the Year.

Jessica, who was a member of the John Whitaker International Pony European Championship Team and was the youngest rider to be named the British Show Jumping Association show jumper of the month, has had a fantastic year.

She has won a number of International pony grands prix— including in Belgium, Germany and Holland — and will be competing at Olympia in two weeks’ time.

The BBC West Young Sports Personality of the Year award is presented to a team or individual who has achieved a high standard of performance at local, national or international level.

The award ceremony will take place at the University of Bath on 6 December.
