As promised, today’s entry will answer some of the many questions presented by the posters over the past several weeks.
At the end of June, the website was experiencing some technical difficulty and was unable to recognize or receive information. Please accept my apology for not returning answers to some of your questions sooner. Attempting to give an insider’s account of the events surrounding the day to day experiences of a junior rider, the plan is to continue my entries through all of the equitation finals this year.. I look forward to continuing this project and responding to as many questions as possible. It has been a fascinating and rewarding experience thus far. Thank you again for all your support!
In September 2006, I will be going to all the finals as a sixteen year old junior under USEF regulations and will have one more year to compete, 2007. With the hopes of entering either Rutgers or Drew University in New Jersey after high school, keeping as close to the barn as possible, the goal is to continue riding as a professional .
As of today , I’ve accumulated enough points to compete at the Maclay regional, USEF talent search and the Washington Equitation final. Two more points and I will qualify for USEF Medal finals. With that in mind, the goal is to finish qualifying and participate in all of the them this fall.
Tomorrow, I’ll continue to answer more of your questions.
See you later,

I really enjoyed the Horse Power series. I noticed that you mentioned you might try to go to Drew U. for college - I graduated from Drew in '99 and rode on the team. It was a fun experience I recommend! But no doubt very different than your experience on the national circuit!

Hi Maria,
i am almost 14 and this is my first year doing the big eq. i was wondering if you do anything special before you go into the ring to get yourself to concentrate and "get in the zone".
