Hi Adeline,

I started riding at a stable in New York City called Claremont Riding Academy. All the horses were donated or rescues, and we did not do any shows.
I enjoyed riding from the beginning but mainly spending time with animals - I was addicted to horses you could say! I am lucky that I fell in love with the horses before the competition. It seems silly in hindsight, but it was never really a question in my head. I knew when I was about 12 that I wanted to work with horses for the rest of my life.
