Welcome Markley Main, our newest Youth Ambassador
I’ve been riding horses my whole life, competing in dressage. This past show season I’ve been working towards National Dressage Pony Cup titles with my Haflinger gelding Amos CVS, or Charlie. He has been a huge part of my riding career building me up as a rider for 8 years. Last year we achieved SCDCTA Year-End JR/YR Training Level Reserve Champion, SCDCTA Year-End Show JR/YR Training Level Champion, Aiken Horse Park JR/YR Training Level Champion. So far this year we’ve claimed Lowcountry Show Series NDPC JR/YR Champion and Lowcountry Show Series Jovee Pony Cup Champion. My goals with him continue to be NDPC titles and NDPC Finals as well as building on his canter work for First and Second level dressage.
While my goals with Charlie are important to me I will be mainly working with our Oldenburg mare Really Fancy aka Babe. Together we will be working towards Dressage Seat Medal Finals, the start of my USDF Bronze Medal, and eventually FEI Juniors.
Our immediate plan is to qualify for Region 3 Finals in Dressage Seat Equitation. I would love to one day compete at the Festival of Champions as well as US Dressage Finals, and we’ve already begun training and fundraising for the FEI Juniors at 2023 NAYC.
I believe that my new partnership with IRH could help me reach these goals by providing me with the opportunity to have an outreach to the equestrian community and a reliable company by my side.
