Pushing Beyond

By Ashley Dowdy

I got a scholarship from SEDA and I used it on the Daniela Moguel clinic at Equi-Best Equestrian Center on April 25-27, 2018. 

Miss Danny is the first female to become part of the Mexican Team. She earned a silver team medal in 2014 at the Central American Games in Mexico and a 5th team place at the 2015 Pan-American Games in Toronto. Miss Danny is also the first Latin rider to qualify for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon in 2018.

The first day we worked on Dressage. She helped me with my counter bend and having a through connection. 

The second and third day we did a lot of exercises for jumping that helped me with counting my strides. On Cross Country, she encouraged me to jump angles and challenged me in and out of water.

I love Miss Danny. She explains things great. My favorite part was Cross Country because I got to jump bigger fences. She encouraged me to push myself beyond what I am used to.

I learned so much from her. I can’t wait for her to come back. She is so nice and explains things great.

Thank you SEDA for the scholarship.
