Get to Know- Madisyn Stewart
The 2018 MIPR 18" Hunter Derby at the 10th anniversary Downeast Medal Finals was won by Finnegan and rider Madisyn Stewart. Madisyn was also the high point Maine rider of the 18" Derby! In this new Get to Know series, we will be highlighting the champions of our 2018 Medal Finals classes as well as our 2018 Hunter Derbies. Here is what Madisyn had to say. Congratulations!

My name is Madisyn Stewart, I’m thirteen years old and I live in Oakland, ME. I have been taking lessons with Jaedon DeRosby at Meadow View Equestrian Center since I was four, but I have been around horses my whole life. I’ve worked in the stables and was a junior counselor for a camp over the Summer. In 2012 I was the Maine Hunter Jumper walk/trot champion. I have been competing at Downeast Medal Finals for four years. This year I won the 18” derby, on my horse Finnegan. I got Finn last April, he’s a 10 year old Quarter horse gelding. He is just the sweetest boy, he’s such a unique soul. As we continue to grow together, and accomplish our goals, we both feel ready to move up to 2’3” and continue to challenge ourselves. We are constantly looking for ways to improve as a team, I’m at the barn four to five days a week, I want to continue to grow with my horse, both as a team and as individuals. I hope to take my passion and love for horses and turn it into something I can pursue professionally.
