Maddie has been riding for a long time now, she started when she was about three years old when she lived in Ireland and hasn’t stopped since! She is passionate about horses, show jumping, riding; basically, everything there is to do with horses! She even has two ponies of her own: Dinx and Smudge (or Amner’s Hot Springs)! Her mum also has a horse and her sister has two as well! She now trains at a yard near Kidmore End and has entered two jumping competitions with her trusty steed – Smudge, one cross country and she has entered a dressage competition (but has not yet had time to shine in it)! She has come 3rd in a jumping competition and 2nd in another! At the minute, she is jumping over 60-70-centimetre jumps: which is very high! Maddie is doing amazingly!
Finally, her favourite sandwich filling is… crisps in a sandwich!!!!!!!!!
