Siena Horton

Barnt Green ski-race sensation Siena Horton enjoyed a thrilling end to the Indoor Season.

The end of season title rested on the last two-day event at Manchester ski centre. Siena kept her head and skied brilliantly to secure the win – and the title: GBR Under 12’s Indoor Slalom champion.

A two-week training camp in Zermatt over the summer improved both fitness and technique, and Siena is now heading into the new season.

 “I enjoy the indoor skiing but it is the outdoor events that I really love, and am looking forward to competing in Bormio in the English Championships, and Meribel in the British National Championships next year,” she told The Village.

As Siena will be the eldest in the Under 12s, moving to the U14s at the end of the outdoor season, expectations are high in the Horton camp.

Siena will also race in Colorado over Christmas, gaining valuable experience against the seasoned American racers.
