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.

Today, I worked with Bueller, the Belgium Warm Blood. ( Pan Pan had the day off) Bueller was noticeably forward and a fun ride. He looks good with potential for a show horse. I participated as a rider in a mock lesson where two potential instructors practiced for their tests. Lots of good interaction.
