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.

So exciting....I had the opportunity to ride Habakatz, a 14 year old black TB. It felt like heaven! Now I feel like we can really work on moving forward toward perfecting First Level. Pan will always be my special guy, but this new boy is certainly nice and such a beautiful mover! I'm grateful for another blessing to have come into my life..
