Biography

Champion Within Recipient

Grace Gregory always had to work a little harder because of a traumatic birth and early diagnosis of autism.  At age 7, she started learning how to ride a horse at Saddle Up!, a nonprofit that changes lives by bringing together special needs children and horses. Grace blossomed and the champion inside emerged, she was fortunate to have been selected from a large number of applicants to attend the inaugural 2013 Lendon Gray dressage winter training in Wellington Florida; an opportunity that was awarded to only 11 of the best North American youth riders. “My goal is to show my community, and the world, that despite certain disabilities, a high level of equestrian achievement is possible, and I am reaching for that goal daily”.
