Danielle Miranda of The Ridge Farm Takes Championship in Modified Children’s Jumpers

Wellington, FL – February 12, 2007 – Danielle Miranda and Marengo topped the field of Children’s Modified Jumper riders on Sunday afternoon to win the division championship at the 2007 Winter Equestrian Festival.

In the $1,000 Children’s Modified class, Miranda and Marengo cruised around to take second place, and in the $1,500 class, the pair the took seventh place ribbon. Together, the placings earned Miranda the championship.

“It was great to win. I was very happy because it was my first time ever doing the Modified Children’s, and I had just moved up this weekend,” Miranda explained. “I was just riding for the experience, but I’m very happy for how it turned out.”

At 16-years-old, Miranda keeps herself busy by commuting between Gladstone, NJ, and Wellington, FL, to show on the weekends. In addition to Marengo, she shows her equitation horse Balderdash, a 12-year-old Swedish Warmblood. She began riding with Olympian Nona Garson at The Ridge just after The National Horse Show and Family Festival and commented that Garson is “everything I wanted in a trainer. I’ve learned so much.”

Miranda’s goals for the next few years include competing in the equitation finals and riding in the North American Young Riders Championships next year with Marengo, a 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood. She will show again in the Children’s Modified Jumper Division this weekend.

Garson said that the pair made a spectacular showing this weekend.

“That was her first time moving up from the regular Children’s, and we were very excited about her outcome. She’s been riding with me since just after the National, and it’s great,” Garson commented. “Marengo is a super horse. He’s got a great personality, and he tries to be very fast and clean every time.”
