Tuesday Video From SpectraVet: ‘Mighty Maren’ Hanson, Age 10, Wins Callaway Gardens Pony Race

We introduced you to ‘Mighty Maren’ Hanson, age 10, in our 2028 Olympic Talent Watch series earlier this year, and now we’re excited to share with you her her most recent cross-training adventure: winning pony races!

Maren demonstrated this weekend that her riding and horsemanship skills extend beyond the eventing world. She and her 17-year-old Arabian pony Sir Chancelot took on and won the Maxine Strupe Perpetual Pony Race at the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens.

Maren’s mom, Christine, shared this: “Lots of eventing kids came to try something new and we would love for more kids and their horses and ponies to get involved in these amazing races. Ashley Perrin, Mason Lampton and Midland Riding Center hosted and also offered a steeplechase camp and race practices earlier in the year and Midland Pony Club and Hilltoppers Pony Club made up many of the entries.”

Go Maren!
