THE NEXT BIG STEP

Hi, everyone! Thanks for your continued support and questions, and for your concern about my career.

I just got back from taking some riders to a one day show. It was a small show in Brewster, New York. It was great to see the students using what they had learned in their lessons during the week as they competed in the show ring.

After I finished working today, I wanted to try answer one of your recent questions about what I believe will be my next big career step. Currently, I am taking a bigger role in giving lessons, immersing myself in the regular training routines of the horses at the barn, and attempting to assist with the day to day functions of the business. The next big step would be to become competitive in the open jumper division, to continue to develop and show young hunters and jumpers and to increase my competency as a rider. As a young professional and at this point in my life, I am proud of what I have accomplished thus far and I recognize that it takes time to develop the expertise and skills necessary to be considered a master in any field. I am quite lucky to be working with experienced professionals and I am learning something new about horses and the sport practically every day. So, I guess you can see that my goal is to continue to gain knowledge and experience, first and foremost, because riding and horses are what I love. By the way, along with my continued work at Hunter's Moon in East Norwich, NY, I will be starting college in a few weeks at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. My plan is to continue working while I attend college.

Catch up with me next time when I answer another one of your questions.
Talk to you later!

Hi Maria.

Thanks for posting. I have a few things I wanted to say/ask.

-What do you want to be when you grow up? A professional rider, or trainer?

-What are you majoring in in college?
