With many years experience in the show ring, Mariah has personally accomplished goals that many amateur riders can only dream of. Achievement awards reach their pinnacle at the "Rider of Excellence" as recognized by the Arabian Horse Association for Amateur riders competing in recognized competition. This is an accolade which is not only very difficult to aspire to, but Mariah has done so completely independent of a trainer of her own. It could be called "training by trial" that Mariah has learned the finesse of successful showing of Arabians and Half-Arabians and from close study and personal involvement. True training evolves as the horses learn and change as well as the rider. Recognizing personal strengths and weaknesses produces awareness. Mariah is a strong competitor in many divisions including Hunter Pleasure, Sport Horse, Dressage, Show Hack and Western Pleasure. Training is truly a "labor of love" and respect for the horse will produce the long term results that last. These principles have produced top level horses and riders through dedicated work programs and overall well-being of the horse in training.
