🍀🍀Good luck today in the $50,000 CSI2* Grand Prix at Split Rock Jumping Tour. 🍀🍀
Here is a little about Mackenzie’s Scholarship over the last few months. Stay tuned for more about Mackenzie, Ekyra and our Sponsored Rider Scholarship.
“The opportunity to spend my summer in Santa Fe, New Mexico came at an interesting time in my life. I had just moved back home, unsure of where my riding was going because I was having difficulties recovering from a hand surgery and was awaiting a second operation. Though the uncertainty was hanging over my head when I got the phone call from Chenoa McElvain congratulating me because I had been chosen for the scholarship I was ecstatic, the rancho corazon scholarship put me back on the path to focusing on my riding and encouraged me to over come challenges from my injury. Upon arriving here, I was greeted by the staff and clients with hugs and praise for my dedication to riding. I immediately felt welcome. Just a few days after my arrival, I got to experience a McElvain trail ride. It was not a trail ride on a dirt path like I was expecting but a ride through canyons and dense brush. This got me excited because I knew I would be working for adventurous people that like a challenge, similar to myself. I then went to the ranch where they breed and train the young horses. While there, I shadowed Taylor as she collected from stallions, bred mares, and worked with the young horses in the round pen. I also lessoned with Guy McElvain and Steve McAllister. Over the week that I was there they gave me valuable tips to better hack my horse and ride in a more effective position. While there, I was able to spend time with Guy and Sharron outside of working. They truly gave me a family here in New Mexico. After working at the ranch for a week my horses and I headed back to Rancho Corazon at HIPICO. Having been a working student previously I am very accustomed to the work days. Chenoa has an amazing staff, so the days ran very smoothly, allowing me to really focus on my riding and spend a good amount of time on each horse. Whether I was lessoning or just hacking, Chenoa took time out of her ride to give me pointers. She sincerely wanted to have a positive impact on my riding abilities and see me succeed. I am astonished by her gratitude and desire to teach. This scholarship has lit a fire in me after a difficult time and I am ready to fully commit my time to riding to see where it takes me. I highly encourage anyone considering entering the equestrian industry to apply for this scholarship. ”
Here is the powerful duos round in the FEI CSI2* Welcome earlier this week! Finishing 11th. ... See MoreSee Less
