Revving up for Youth Nationals in just a few weeks, Show Season rider Allie Cederberg is no newbie to the show arena, competing since she was just 3 years old.
“I got involved with showing through my mom, who use to show,” she explains. But what really made her fall in love was the “beauty, intelligence and goofy personality” or the Arabian breed.
Last year this talented junior rider won Reserve National Champion in the PB English Pleasure 14-17, Top Ten in the HA Country 14-17, Top Ten in the PB Hunter 14-17, and Top Ten in HA Hunt Seat Equitation Not to Jump 14-17… and we can’t wait to see how she does this year.
