Chong, a former Pony Clubber, saw the need for a practical "everything but the riding" guide to preparing for competition. She has been a working student at eventing and dressage barns in California, the East Coast and Germany, and rides in U.S. Equestrian Federation, U.S. Eventing Association, and U.S. Dressage Federation recognized competitions.
