Q: "What is your favorite part about the horse world?"

Maddy: "The horses are what bring out my obsession with this world. Getting to work with such special creatures day in and day out is a true blessing. While its obvious that the horses are the reason why most riders, including myself, are crazed about the horse world, there are other aspects about show jumping that I also value. Within this sport, there is so much to learn. This world will always remain so exciting to me because of all the new challenges and obstacles we will face as riders now, and in the many many years to come.
