The Equestrian Confidential team would like to give a big congrats (and cheers a glass of wine) to San Diego riders Alan Smith and Romi Skolnik!
If you show in Del Mar, you probably know both of these friendly faces. Alan and Romi are friends of Equestrian Confidential and two of our very favorite people.
Both received big honors at the recent 2017 Greater San Diego Hunter Jumper Association year end awards banquet – Romi taking home the Best Adult Rider, and Alan being awarded the coveted Sportsmanship Award.
Alan rides with Jasmin Stair Stables at Fortuna Del Charro in Rancho Santa Fe, and has been climbing the ranks in the amateur jumper divisions with his three jumpers, while making a huge impact on his local equestrian community. Romi rides with Newmarket Farms of Del Mar and if you don’t know her and the cutest hunter we’ve ever seen – Hanky Panky – from the hunter, eq, & medal rings, then you’re definitely missing out! Keep an eye out for upcoming Amateur Spotlights on both Alan and Romi.
