Bio - Adria Di Maria

Allow me to introduce myself, Adria Di Maria, and the exciting world of Para-equestrian dressage, a sport which has been developing over the past 25 years. Athletes are classified according to their level of disability and compete on a national and international level. I contracted Polio in 1955, and as a result have significant weakness in both of my legs.

My goal is simple: I plan on being the best challenged rider I can be. This means being not only a member of our proud US Para-equestrian Team, but also a respected and contributing member of the community. As a Para-equestrian competitor, I hope to become an ambassador for the disabled athlete and to the world community in the specialty of Para Dressage at the Paralympics in 2012/ England.

Barrel Racing...warmblood? They don't seem to go together in the same sentence. But Bueller and I had great fun pretending to do the rodeo circuit yesterday! This new Belgium Warmblood, the horse with the lovely gait but a bit lazy absolutely loved it! Who would have guessed. I don't think Bueller realized he was "working" and moved out without a lot of crop. What a great exercise. We both had a hoot .....and accomplished much!
