Daniela Stransky Secchi and the FEI Children's International Show Jumping competition

Teen equestrian Daniela Stransky Secchi, her mother Liliane, and the 13 year old's trainer Grand Prix veteran Jorge Zamudio of Stranksy Mission Farm, flew from Florida to a special FEI Children's International Show Jumping competition at Gran Copa Centro Ecuestre de Puerto Rico.

Although the already veteran competitor didn't know all her fellow riders names, the JustWorld International ambassador knew the name of the horse she would compete aboard - a jumper named "Super Cool," owned by Carmen Elena Alfonsor. Upon her return, Daniela will continue to show nationally and internationally as well as giving hands on help at different charities, including Operation Smile, the Chateaublond Therapeutic Riding Center and her mom's Step By Step Foundation (http://www.stepbystepfoundation.com), which works to enhance the life of underprivileged children by creating and supporting education, health, nutrition and wellness programs worldwide. They will be heading off to Haiti as well to help children less privileged this spring. Look for Daniela at Finals here is in the US and FEI events abroad...or buying books, mentoring children, and raising funds and awareness whenever, and whereever she can!

Congratulations to Hillary Dobbs on a truly iconic year and for getting through Finals at Harvard while qualifying for, and competing during, two of the biggest show jumping events in the country - the $200,000 Budweiser Invitational on Marlo and the FEI Rolex World Cup Final aboard Quincy B! The daughter of CNN anchor then returned to the show where she gained her first two Grand Prix victories back to back just two years ago at the St. Clement's Saratoga Horse Shows. This amazing young rider began her winning streak started at in 2007 when she won the $25,000 Saratoga Cup National Standard during Week I followed by her victory week II in the $25,000 David B Wood Cup National Standard. Quincy B got some time off during these two horse show, but will be back as the return when Hillary heads back to Devon to defend her Open Jumper Championship! (Photos by Randi Muster)

Speaking of the historical Devon Horse Show, Sarah Ward of Finally her first year riding as an amateur adult continues as it began at Devon, where she will be competing in the A/O Hunters and jumpers this year. This will be the 18 year old from Orlando, Florida's first time at this prestigious show showing as an adult, but if her performance this winter and spring is any indication, she should have no problems! Then just a few more shows until she takes on riding on the equestrian team at the University of South Carolina, still competing as on the A Circuit with Finally Farm AND keeping up her grades!
