The New Year - 2006

I have just started my new semester at NYU and I am continuing to ride by going to Florida every weekend. I show at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL and all of my horses are living down there. I have sold 4 horses since maclay finals and now I am left with 2 of the jumpers I had before and I just got a new one! He came from europe and I will hopefully be able to qualify for Young Riders on him this year because I have been able to compete there the last two years. It's a little sad for me to have sold most of my horses, but 3 out of the 4 were sold within the barn (including my maclay eq horse) so I will be able to see them and still ride them all the time.

I leave for Florida on the thursday night flight on Jetblue to go to Florida and come back to school on sunday nights. I have been down a few times already and it is a little hard with all my school work, but I'm managing. Also, next week is the premiere of the Animal Planet series Horse Power which I am a part of. It will be cool for everyone to see the riding world and also for me to see all my friends on tv! It's been a very fun process and I'm really excited to see how it turned out. Riding hasn't been on tv that much, and I think this show has done a great job getting that started. Everyone should watch!

Editor's Note: The 5-episode Horse Power: Road to the Maclay TV series premieres Wednesday, February 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Animal Planet (view the complete series schedule). If you missed the first episode, it will reair on Saturday, February 4, at 2 p.m. ET/PT.

You said in one of your earlier posts that you don't have the "typical equitation body." Why, specifically, is that?
 
I am very anxious to know this as well, "typical equitation body." I'm a plus-sized Dressage rider.
 
I think you looked lovely! What is the "typical eq body?? In my opinion, looks like you've got it.
 
typical eq body is thin and long...especially long legs, but a proportional upper body
 
Dear Natalie,
My friend Aley went to Young Riders. I think she told me that Nikko was on her team. That would be really cool if you could let me know. If not thats ok.

I know that I'm way late on this, but I just wanted to tell you that the girl whom you sold one of your horses to rides with me. "Lavaro" is now in our barn and he's doing great. She's had great success with him in the Highs and the Grand Prixs. Just thought you might like to know. =)
