Our second sponsored rider is Molly DiNapoli out of Infinitty Farm in Ocala, Florida.
Molly began riding at the age of 3 and her love for horses has never slowed down. She was competing in the AA rated junior hunter and jumper divisions by the age of 12 and soon after began the Big Eq and Grand Prix classes. Through out her junior career she has worked with trainers all over the country including Don Stewart, Bibby Hill, Darragh Kenny, Aaron Vale, Michael Dowling and Dianne Hatt. She has won on numerous occasions in the Big Eq classes such as the USET, Maclay, USEF medal, and WHIS medal qualifying for finals every year. Not only were her goals met in the Equitation, but in the hunters and jumpers as well. She has taken home top 10 placings at all National finals including Devon, Harrisburg and Jr hunter finals to name a few on various horses in the Junior Hunters And Equitation as well as multiple international derbies on horses such as Rio Mio, Tahitian Gold and Ne-Yo. Molly has also earned multiple tri colors from the nations most prestigious horse shows in both the Junior and Professional classes as a young rider. She also developed a love for training and competing horses that are sometimes written off as “problems.” At 14 years old Molly took a previous grand prix horse that had been deemed never to jump again after a hard fall that had left him extremely nervous. Despite the suggestions, she turned him into a top international derby and High performance working hunter in just a few months.
Molly has many recent achievements including ribboning at Devon in the High Performance Hunters, a win in the International Hunter Derby in Pensacola, a few Welcome Stake wins and top 2 placings in the 1.30m and 1.40m jumpers.
