Primary Horse’s Name: “Tons of fun “Tank””
“My name is Claudia Fumagalli. I was born on February 14, 2003 and I am from Maryland. My passion for horses started when I was 6 years old at a summer camp. I officially began taking lessons a few weeks after my 7th birthday and have never looked back. I am the girl that never grew out of “”the pony phase””. My life completely revolves around horses. I started out riding English, but began riding Western in early 2017.
Barrels and Poles have become my second love (behind my boy Tank)! Tank is a 23 year old 13.3hh Haflinger gelding. Tank being half blind brings along challenges for us, but it never sets us back. While his breed and age stop his from competing with the big boys, he has taught me what being a cowgirl truly means. That is something I would not trade for the world. Tank has earned retirement to the moon and back, so 2019 will be the last year I compete on him. I plan to buy a prospect this year and from there seeing where my plan takes me.”
