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 the Vet out to look at my sweet boy, Pan. His ringbone has progressed, and now he has earned the status of pasture power puff. He had a magnificent career and help many riders with disabilites live their dream. What a great horse with a big heart. I am so grateful to have had him as my partner for this past year. Thank you Pan Pan.
