How did you learn about Ellany Equestrian? I learned about Ellany Equestrian through my Instagram explore page. I saw their products and was interested in learning more about them!
Favorite Ellany product? I LOVE the D-Ring belts! I personally have the Moroccan Pink belt and I hope to purchase more soon!
Biggest riding accomplishment? My biggest riding accomplishment doesn’t really involve shows. It was when I went to Europe to look for a jumper, and that’s where I got Rheyd. I was able to ride horses that I didn’t know and jump up to 1.50m with a handful of them. I feel it was one of my biggest accomplishments to put my abilities to the test and ride better than I ever had. It was an experience that I’ll never forget!
Who is your riding inspiration? My riding inspirations involve many different riders. The one who I look up to the most is Fabio Andres Rodriguez. I met him at the George Morris Clinic in 2016 when I was leasing a horse from the barn that he was riding at. He is the most humbled person you could ever meet. I had the pleasure to watch him show some horses in Ocala earlier this year. He recently moved to France to continue his career where he is showing successfully in CSI *** classes! I am thankful to know him, he is a great role model for me—not only in riding, but in life.
