The horses go well in them, their skin stays good in them, and they get the best protection they need.

A serious Irish Dancer for 10 years until age 15, competing around the world in World Championships, Tiana's equestrian career didn't take off until 2003 when she purchased her first equine partner King Street, aka "Danny", who would eventually take her to Rolex. In 2004 and 2008, Tiana's Young Rider Team won gold at the North American Young Rider Championships, with Tiana also winning an individual silver medal in '04. She was named USEA Young Rider of the Year an unprecedented three times in '05, '07, and '09. In 2010 Tiana's Jersey Fresh CCI3* win garnered her The Markham Trophy in Eventing, and she also won the prestigious Gladstone National Open Challenge Award and she and Finian led the American team to a 2nd place finish in the Nations Cup at Boekelo CCI3* in Holland. In 2011, Tiana was presented the Lionel Guerrand-Hermes Trophy, an award that's presented to a Young Rider in one of the Olympic disciplines who exemplifies both sportsmanship and horsemanship and to finish out the year, was named America's Favorite Equestrian for Eventing.
