Ask @mavispence : How did you start working with Kent Farrington, do you like it and also, what is your advice on how a young rider can actually become a top rider in jumping?

Hi Abby,

I was meant to go work for Kents business partner in Europe at the time and he offered me to come work for him instead to learn the American system. I was there for nearly 4 years and I loved it and learned so much!!

I think you have to be willing to work harder and make more of an effort even if you aren't the most talented because there are a lot of people with a lot of talent.

You need to make yourself stand out from everyone else!
