THE staff



My name is Dariia, I am a 17 years old Ukrainian dressage rider, experienced up to M level.  I came here to develop myself more as a dressage rider. I am obsessed with horses and dressage. I work in the stable and get a chance to ride as well. All of the horses are sweet, however Ferragamo is my favorite one. He is a great prospective with a top character.
