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 great lesson on the black TB , Habakatz. Sarah, my trainer, and I are making progress in preparing for the FEI test. The sequence of moves is pretty complex but definitely doable. Habakazt is a good boy and cooperative even when I am lunging. I will post a photo of this handsome horse.
Talking about handsome boys, well Pan Pan has been enjoying his special stall next to the mare's pasture a bit too much. It now seems the mare's are trying to break down the fence to be with the "stud muffin"!
