-- The United States Hunter Jumper Association Emerging Athletes Program, presented by Dover Saddlery, held training sessions in Texas and Virginia for nearly 40 riders from across the country. Peirce Equestrian's very own Makayla Harp received the honor for being one of the riders selected representing the East Texas Equestrian center. The Emerging Athletes Program is supported in part by a generous grant from the United States Equestrian Federation, as well as individual donors through the USHJA Foundation. While the majority of riders are new to the program, eight are returning to the program to continue improving their horsemanship in and out of the saddle. The eight riders returning to the program include: Chloe Bellerive, Cary Hundley, Nicole Hylton, Johanna Jessen, Sydney Moriarty, Anna O'Connor, Lara Shelokov, and Pierce Equestrian's Makayla Harp!
Makayla began riding when she was ten years old. She has always had an incredible work ethic and a desire to be the best. Makayla is a successful competitor in Hunters and Jumpers; riding a variety of different catch rides in her youth to now competing client and sale horses. Much of her riding education has been with Amanda Peirce but she actively seeks out instruction from the best in the industry.
