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.

I have been falling down on my blog...for which I apologize. But sometimes life gets in the way for even an equestrians passion. This is the wonderful gelding I will be leasing... Habakatz. He is a 14year old TB and has done well in First Level competition. He is a good boy and loves his carrots. We are working on feeling the connection and the power of the outside rein.
Starting to research lodging in Kentucky for the WEG in October. Although not participating, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet and watch para riders from all over the world!
