in 2012, her eventing competitor and trainer entered a Mustang Makeover competition on the encouragement of a friend. Elisa won the compatition and purchased her mustang, and she was hooked!
In January 2015 she participated in the Magic and she was paired with a mustang mare she named Hwin and they placed 4th. Although she wasn't planning on keeping her, their bond and Hwin's knack for eventing with weeks of training sealed the deal!
Currently competing at Preliminary level, Elisa can see how far she and Hwin can go in their next event which is dominatd by Sport horses and Throughbreds.
