My name is Hannah McCabe, I am an eighteen year old dressage rider from Lee, NH. I have had the wonderful opportunity of riding and competing Valparaiso this competition season. Valparaiso, known as "Walter" in the barn, is a 15 year old Swedish Warmblood gelding, owned by Laurie White. Walter and I have been competing all over New England and New York since May to qualify to represent my region at the North American Young Rider Championship (NAJYRC) in the Young Rider division. Young Riders is for youth 16-21 years old riding the equivalent of the Prix St George, the first of four international levels. We have had an amazing season and are ranked #1 in our Region and #5 in the entire country! We are heading to Kentucky on the 12th of July for NAJYRC and need your help to get there! It is extremely expensive to get to and compete in NAJYRC. It is $1,675 just to ship Walter there. On top of that there are the show entry fees, flights, hotel cost and so on. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your time and supporting my goal!!
