Wellington, Fla.
- Tracey Mack-Gorin and Seville jumped their way to the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunter Section A division championship Friday morning at the FTI WEF. Mack-Gorin rode Seville, owned by Isabelle Caccamise, to second, fifth, and first places over fences before finishing second in the under saddle class.
 
The reserve champion for the division was Stephanie Bulger and her own Mariano. The pair won two over fences classes in addition to finishing fourth under saddle.

Mack-Gorin was Circuit Champion of the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunter division at the 2013 FTI WEF with Condor and is already off to a good start in 2014, even after only having the ride on Seville for a few weeks.
 
"He's really sweet and comfortable," Mack-Gorin described. "He's got a really good attitude. Even if I make a mistake, he's nice about it and never holds it against me. He just goes to the next jump the same as if I didn't make a mistake."
 
Like some young amateurs, Mack-Gorin doesn't have the ability to have a horse of her own, and is grateful for the opportunity to ride Seville under the guidance of Ashland Farms' Ken and Emily Smith and Christy Kear.
 
"I've been really lucky. I just finished law school, so I don't have my own horses anymore. It's been really nice to have something to ride, and they've all been great," Mack-Gorin expressed.
 
Mack-Gorin juggled law school with competing at the FTI WEF in 2013, and this year she's busy studying for the Florida Bar Examination in between riding on the weekends.
 
"It's a lot of stuff going on, but it makes showing a lot more fun because it's like a treat at the end of the week. I know I get to come here and ride and show and be around the horses. It's a nice break, so it's more helpful than hurtful," Mack-Gorin commented.
 
Mack-Gorin is originally from Noank, CT, and went to school in New York, but her days of flying south for the winter are behind her now that she's a full-time Wellington resident. Her fiancé travels most of the year while managing international show jumper Richie Moloney's barn, but spends enough time in Wellington that the couple chose it as the perfect place to settle down.
