THE END OF MY FIRST WINTER CIRCUIT AS A PROFESSIONAL
I was really happy with how my first winter circuit as a new professional ended.
Just like my days as a junior catch rider, many mornings started before six a.m. and ended quite late in the evening. Yet, the days had a new and an additional aspect to them, I was responsible for helping other riders and customers, and assisting my superiors, in and out of the show ring as part of a management team.
The last four weeks of the the circuit, I was privileged to show a young gelding, named Countdown, in the six year old young jumper division. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the owners and professionals who asked me to ride their horses during the circuit. Looking back on my first WEF as a young professional, I was very lucky to have supportive family, friends, coworkers, trainers and superiors.
I will be staying in Wellington for three more weeks, working at the Equestrian Sport Productions, 2008 Spring Circuit (formerly Littlewood). Then, I will return to the Northeast, and the Garden State Horse Show, Sussex, NJ, will be our first show back at home.
Recently, someone asked when I was planning to start college. I will begin attending Rutgers University this fall and will continue to work while in school.
Thank you for all your comments and continued support.
Talk to you soon!
