Introducing Madison Penfound

International Canadian 3* Event Rider

Hello equestrian world!!

As you may or may not have heard of me my name is Madison Penfound, I am 23 years old- born and bred Canadian, currently competing a team of 11 horses in the UK from youngsters to 3 star event horses. I recently was lucky enough to receive sponsorship by Pony & Pup Photography who I am very excited to work with.

I will be posting frequently- from funny stories, experiences, inspiration for all you determined riders, and of course lots of helpful information from my time training horses from beginning to the top level and also competing at the top level.

A bit of my story (not too much as I don't want you to get bored yet haha)... I began late for a rider at the age of 12, shortly after I rescued an off the track horse rehabbed and re trained him (yes I was only 13). Following that I learned what eventing was- the first description of eventing that I was told is 'you get to jump picnic table type objects'. To me that sounded like the dream!! Until I heard dressage came first.

Later I got my first horse who was only young, together we flew up the levels to 2 star. That was it... I was hooked and knew my calling in life. I immediately looked for universities I could get a degree and continue to train and compete- that is when I found Hartpury College. With my very supportive families help we moved myself and my horse to England! I received my Batchelor of Honours in Business as well as picking up my second horse. Ella was 5, a pure bred dressage horse. As I brought her up the lower levels I was told multiple times to sell her, that she wouldn't go above 1 star. Well this past year Ella jumped double clear around her (and my) first 3 star! Anyways after a lot, I mean a lot of hard work and persistence I just started a business of training elite horses for sale and I've got an exciting team of horses which I aim to represent Canada at 2019 Pan Am's and 2020 Olympics.

My story has not been easy, I've had many lows, but I've also used that to push myself to be the best I can be. I hope you follow along and can learn or just enjoy some of the posts coming your way!
