From Palm Beach Gardens, FL
How long riding:
What made you start riding:
My father introduced me to riding and got me started
What was the name of your first pony:
What pony currently showing:
Does anyone else ride in the family:
My father, Joseph Pietrafesa, rides and plays polo here in South Florida
Friends that ride:
I don't have any friends in my school that ride. My friends all think it's really amazing that I ride and jump and have even come to see me ride!
How do you juggle your time:
On the days that I don't ride I try to fit in as many of the other activities that I enjoy. I play piano and study voice, take art, dance and I model. I'm busy!!
Favorite piece of tack: I like my saddle the best because it has my name on the back!
Favorite horse sport I'd like to try:
I'd like to play polo because I could play it with my dad (and maybe even beat him one day!)
My pony is boarded at Moorcroft, Inc.
Do you know how to braid?
No, but I plan to learn.
What would you like to accomplish as a junior rider:
I want to go to pony finals next year!
What are you most proud of as a rider:
The first year I rode, I fell off and broke my humerus. I'm proud that when it healed, I wasn't afraid and was able to get right back on and start again.
Do you see yourself riding after junior years:
I would love to be able to ride through college!
1) I do professional modeling and often get free clothes for doing it!
2) I was born in Virginia in a snowstorm and now live in sunny Florida!
3) My favorite foods are clams, artichokes and olives...black olives only!
4) I love to read!
5) I learned to ski when I was 2 1/2.
