Featured Ballerina’s

Welcome to the featured ballerina’s page. We love sharing the stories of everyday equestrians who do great things.

Emily Grimstead:

I caught up with Emily fresh off her successful trip to the National Pony Dressage Cup. We talked about How her pony Goose went from being rescued from slaughter to breed Champion at Pony Cup.

Since then Emily and Goose have successfully debut at first level. At the USDF annual awards dinner in December Goose was named the 2017 USDF All-Breed Award Appaloosa Champion in AA training level. What a massive accomplishment!

These results are testament to Emily’s hard work and determination. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for this pair.
