Saddled Up

Award-winning equestrian, mother and animal activist Georgina Bloomberg fills us in on her life and the new projects keeping her happily “in the saddle” of Southern Florida.

FOR AWARD-WINNING equestrian and confirmed New-York-City girl Georgina Bloomberg, riding is a vocation. “I love being at the barn, but to me, it is very much my job,” she readily admits. “When I come into the stable, I want to work hard and get something accomplished. I know what my goal is and what I want to work on, so when I get there, I really focus.”

This razor-sharp determination has defined her since an early age. She began riding at 4 years old and then began competing as an amateur shortly after at the age of 6. “I think competing as a little kid was a good experience,” says the petite and poised equestrian. “The way we did it, we were able to spend the whole day at the barn, be around friends and be around the animals. We all had responsibilities, so for us, it wasn’t so much about the competition, but more about barn life. Taking care of animals and showing up for horse shows taught us how to win and lose. Learning how to lose gracefully is very important. I’m so glad I had this experience to support friends and work really hard for something. If you win, it pays off, and if you lose, you learn how to deal with it.”
