Gabriella Collins
Gabriella has been riding with Jodie since she was 7.

In 2008 Gaby worked her way into the top 150 in the standings for the prestigious Marshall & Sterling League's Child Horse Medal.  The Marshall & Sterling League currently has over 2,500 members.  The League's members compete at more than 220 shows nationwide throughout the year for an invitation to the East Coast Finals at the Washington International Horse Show and the West Coast Finals in California.

She also won the National Children's Medal Class at HITS 2008 in Ocala, FL and qualified for National Junior Hunter finals.  At only 12-years of age, Gaby was one of the youngest to be competitive in the Junior Division.  The National Children's Medal is a 3-foot equitation class.

Gaby trains with Jodie and Christina Schleusemeyer out of Quiet Hill Farm in Ocala, FL.  She and her horse Phantom competed together in the Juniors 3'6" and Equitation divisions.

She is a 2011 ASPCA Maclay Finalist.  The ASPCA Maclay Finals were held at the 128th Alltech National Horse Show at the Kentucky Horspark in Lexington, KY.  Gaby was one of only nineteen qualifying for the prestigious event from Region 3.

The ASPCA Maclay is called the “proving ground of champions” and the ultimate test for America’s young riders.  Those who win it often go on to ride professionally, and the roster of winners reads like a who’s who of equestrian sports.  For spectators, it is poetry in motion, where horse and rider seem to float effortlessly through difficult maneuvers.  For the young competitors, it is about grace and style and a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work.

Gaby spends her summers training with Jodie at Southern Cross in Destin, FL.
