Leila Maktabi- Always Up for a Challenge: 2KGrey Ambassador
Leila Maktabi is 15 years old, and started riding when she was 8 years old. Leila started showing in the hunter equitation rings on the C circuit on her green broke pony, Little Dipper. She excels in equitation. She worked hard over the years to make Dipper the show pony he is today and now her 10 year old sister is showing him in cross poles.
She just found her new partner Ontario Storm, a green OTTB from Canada. She will start teaching him to jump for the hunter equation ring with the goal of showing him in baby greens next year. Leila loves the challenge of greener horses and putting in the time. She loves showing to test the hard work she has done, never feeling pressure. Her passion is working with greener horses and hopes to find a student work program and attend Sweet Briar College to fine tune her skills and have a career with horses.
Favorite Intrepid Product: 2KGrey
“I’m in love with my 2kGrey breeches. They are so comfortable and breathable on hot days. They are stretchable which allows you to do more off and in the saddle! They aren’t just “Riding breeches” They are very fashionable breeches that you can go out wearing anywhere besides the barn! I feel confident and look good when I wear my 2kGrey breeches. They work for equestrians and non- equestrians alike.”
