Do you want to know what a young professional at the winter circuit in Wellington does each day? Today, I will try my best to tell you about my experiences thus far in Florida.

I have been very fortunate to show three hunters since I arrived in Florida in late December; the first, for a week in the pre-green division, the second, for a week in a schooling class, and the third horse, for the last several weeks, in the non-thoroughbred hunter class. Recently, I started showing a young jumper prospect who is coming seven in 2008, in the medium and high schooling jumper classes.
The rest of my time is spent riding and schooling horses for clients, helping at the ring during the show and during lessons, and trying to give feedback to clients about their riding when I think it will be helpful.

My new role as a young professional is challenging and meaningful to me and I am constantly learning more about horses, on the ground and while riding.
After the winter circuit ends, I will be working for Frank Madden Show Stable, which will be located at Hunter's Moon Farm in East Norwich, New York.

Catch up with me later this week for my thoughts about the Olympic selection trails held during the circuit!

Your continued support is greatly appreciated!
Talk to you later!

Frank Madden Show Stable? In NY? I knew something happened, but why did he move farms? Divorce

This blog is about Maria, not her trainer's personal life.
Thank You Maria for taking the time to continue updating your blog, I've seen you show the one hunter in the Non-TB's, and you are a very talented rider. Good Luck in the future.
