If you watched the PRO TV live stream yesterday from Galway Downs, you saw the premiere of EN’s Ones to Watch, a brand new series in which we’ll be talent spotting up-and-coming riders. Our first rider is Madison Temkin of Sonoma, Calif., who just turned 14 last week and has already twice been named to the USEF’s Eventing 18 list.
She competed in her first CCI* at Galway Downs this weekend on Kingslee, a 16-year-old OTTB owned by Deb and Geriann Henderson. They moved up from 22nd after dressage to finish in 12th place in the 47-horse division on a final score of 57.4 with a double clear cross country and one rail down yesterday in show jumping.
As you’ll see in the video, Madison’s next big goal is to represent Area VI on the one-star team at Young Riders next year. We had a blast filming with Madison, her mom Beth and Kingslee — you can see behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot on our Instagram — and we’re excited to follow along as she works her way through the levels.
Go Madison. Go Eventing.
