Last year, Madeline Backus had an incredible rise to stardom with her long time partner, PS Arianna. This year, she was awarded the inaugural Wilton Fair Grant, and went over the pond to work with Irish international rider Austin O’Connor at Attington Stud in Thame, Oxforshire with two horses. Her goals were high, and her fairytale was becoming reality, but as it is in the horse world, plans don’t always follow a straight line. [Villains and Victories Throughout My Fairytale]
