Everybody fails, even the pros. This week, we’re reminiscing on our biggest mess ups and what we learned from them. Georgina Bloomberg joins us to talk about how she balances horse sport and rescuing animals while living in the Big Apple. We ask her all the important questions about her furry friends. Thanks for tuning in.
Georgina Bloomberg is a professional show jumper based in New York City, North Salem, N.Y., and Wellington, Fla. Georgina represented the United States Equestrian Team at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, where she earned a Team Bronze medal. She has co-authored four young adult novels about the equestrian show circuit and is well known for her philanthropic efforts, particularly for her extensive animal welfare work.

More about our hosts:
Ellie Woznica is a 22-year-old freelance book designer and horse trainer because she couldn’t choose which career to pursue and her mom said she wouldn’t make the decision for her. She grew up showing the hunters and jumpers, but in university, she learned to ride western and fell in love with reining.
Jessica Payne is a 32-year-old international event rider who is rarely seen without her long-haired chihuahua under her arm. She was born in London, Ontario, but grew up in Franklin, Tenn. and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Animal Science. She once lost the tip of her pinky finger clipping her 4* horse, and husband Doug says she can “talk to anyone including a wall….and they will like it!”
Justine Griffin is an award winning 30-year-old journalist who has written about everything from horses to high profile CEOs to her ovaries. (She donated her eggs once.) Two things she loves the most? Whippet puppies and cheese. Justine is a firm believer in unicorns and feminism. So take everything she says with a grain of salt.
