    4. Acing the Equitation with Ellie Ferrigno

    If you've watched any equitation finals in recent years, you've definitely heard Ellie Ferrigno's name. But she is a seasoned competitor in all three rings, having claimed the Overall Grand Championship in the 3’6’’ section of the 2019 USEF Junior Hunter National Championships – East Coast, the 2019 Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals – East, and most recently taking third in the 2020 USHJA Gladstone Cup Equitation Classic - East, presented by Intermont Equestrian at Emory & Henry College. We caught up with Ellie a few days after the Gladstone Cup, amidst the stabling in Traverse City, to chat about her successful junior career and what the future holds.

    We're so excited to be joined by Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta of Beaver River Farm in Camden, South Carolina, and Danny and Ron's Rescue. You may know them from their equine endeavors--both have trained riders and horses to compete at the industry's most prestigious events, while Danny is a renowned judge and Ron has devoted countless hours to the USHJA as chair of the USHJA International Hunter Derby & Incentive Task Force--or from the incredible dog rescue they started in 2005. These two have certainly dedicated their lives to animals in incredible ways, so join us as we hear how they became horse obsessed, how they juggle it all, and what keeps them motivated to keep doing what they do for the animals in their lives.
