2010 Goals: Help her NCAA riding team win a national championship, continue improving her riding.
Thoughts on EAP: “I hope to gain a better understanding on what it is to be a true horseman. There are a lot of definitions, but I feel the people who have started this have a true, deep understanding of the horse. I hope to get at least some of that understanding to continue my horse career.”
2010 Goals: Qualify for and place in the top 10 at medal finals.
Thoughts on EAP: “It really hit home that every single detail of the horse and how you care for them is more than 200 percent of the priority. I thought I had known what I needed to know about the sport, but I found out I really only know about 10 percent and every clinic has been an experience.”
2010 Goals: Keep bringing along his horse, Quinaro, in the open jumpers and continue to grow as a rider.
Thoughts on EAP: “This program is just a wonderful experience. I’ve learned from some of the best people in the industry and gained new knowledge. I haven’t been riding long, only started three years ago, so any experience is a good experience.”
2010 Goals: Show in the jumpers down in Florida, equitation finals in the fall, spend spring and summer working in Europe.
Thoughts on EAP: “Showing is different because you have one chance, one round, and you need the perfect round. This is more about horsemanship and improving the all around horseman. I’ve learned a lot through all the clinicians. We’ve had a lot of talented people teaching.”
2010 Goals: Starting her 5-year-old homebred Selle Francais/TB mare in the jumper ring.
Thoughts on EAP: “I love this program because they work a lot with the resistance-free training, and that’s what we do at home with the babies and problem ponies. It's really cool to see that in the hunter/jumper world. There’s so much emphasis on education and learning, and that’s one thing I really value.”
