“Having only riding for four years now, competing and riding at the level I am at now was never thought to be a possibility when I first started doing x rails three years ago. Jumping my first 1.40 this year was a huge success – I placed third!”

Cayden’s biggest accomplishment is winning the 1.35 Classic in thermal this past winter – it was a huge class and Cayden’s horse Princess stepped up her game and they tackled the course like they’d been doing it for years, even though it was their second 1.35 class ever.

Cloud 9 (Princess) is a 13 year old 16.1 Dutch Warmblood/TB mare and she really is quite a princess – she’s very cranky towards everyone Cayden. Princess is a lot like Zazu from The Lion King, says Cayden. She’s a fighter and often strives to do her best and what’s asked of her.

Next year, Cayden hopes to move up to the 1.45s and go to Young Riders as well as jump some smaller grand prixs and compete in Florida.
