Want to find Madison Krieg? Look for the nearest horse.

The Coupeville High School senior is a natural-born talent in the world of equestrian riding, and her summer was chock-full of big meets, big finishes and getting to know her newest steed.

Krieg’s fourth horse is a high-energy winner named Hottie, and the duo have been tearing up the circuit since coming together.

“I have had her for about three months and they have been probable the most exciting months of my horse career!,” Krieg said.

The duo kicked off their partnership with a 4th place finish at July’s Whidbey Island O-Mok-See in Langley, taking down some “serious competition” at a gaming show which includes multiple events such as poles, figure eight and barrels.

After that, Krieg and Hottie spent the hotter months bouncing from show to show, including the Monroe Fair, piling up ribbons and awards as they went.

The biggie was Bailey’s Barrel Bonanza in Rochester, which attracted 500+ riders “from every age, and people that have come from very far distances with some very, very fast horses.”

Despite only being together for a short month at the time, the duo claimed 1st place in their division, earning a championship saddle, the first of Krieg’s career.

“That was amazing!,” she said.

Krieg and Hottie wrap the summer series next weekend at the PNW Les Schwab O-Mok-See in Seattle, but that doesn’t mean their riding days are done.

“That’s when the real fun begins, because my final year in WAHSET (Washington High School Equestrian Team) will start!,” Krieg said. “I can’t wait and I know me and Hottie will have a blast this year!”
