Mary Patrick, 20, has been riding since the age of 3 and grooming for the last four of those years. Having worked for some of the top trainers in Maryland including David Loman, Elizabeth Solter, and Allison Fisher, Patrick has learned the tricks of the trade from some very educated professionals. But not only are grooms important at the shows, Patrick says, they also play a large role in keeping the show horses fit while at home. Watch below to learn more about what a show groom is and why they are so important.

In this video, Patrick is riding Tank, “Ocean Drive” owned by Linda and Marina Willson of Fox Run Farm. Patrick has been grooming and riding for the Willsons for several months.
