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.

Had a very busy weekend at REINS! End of the year Horse event and I had my first solo art show. It was a big success with kind and wonderful comments from all and I even sold a fair amount of my art work. All proceeds go towards helping Sarah and I get to the Kansas City Show. Thanks to all! For all those interested , check out my The staff/volunteers and riders participating in the weekend festivities were fabulous and a great time was had by all. Although we didn't ride in this show, Pan Pan got lots of love pats from just about everyone...of course.
