The Ridges Rider Ambassador

Maggie Barnett, 17, Ashburn, Ontario

My mom used to ride when she was younger and that got me intrigued. I have been hooked ever since she took me to my first lesson when I was seven.

I have always wanted to ride on the Canadian Young Riders Event Team and move up the levels of Eventing. I own a 16-year-old, 16.2h Holsteiner mare, Stella, and we compete at preliminary. I train with Kendal Lehari (jumping) and Tanya Buchanan (dressage). I want to become the best rider I can be, compete and have fun riding. I started riding at a hunter-jumper barn, but after Mom wanted to take dressage lessons, we moved to Michele Mueller’s Cedar Valley Stables where she could take dressage and I could take jump lessons. After a couple of years, I leased a pony from Michele and at our first show in the pre-entry division at Glen Oro, and we placed place first. That’s when I knew I was meant for Eventing. I competed at one more show with the pony then got Stella as an awesome birthday present four years ago!

Stella and I have had many ups and downs, but I believe those experiences have made us a great team and pair for the future of eventing. We plan to make our first appearance in the CCI* this coming season and I aspire to be on the Junior Young Riders Event Team for Canada.
