How a Life-Changing Injury Translated to International Business Success


Hi there partner,

Jade Maillet’s traveled the world for the past decade gaining a wealth of experience riding and training with world champions.

Along the way, she settled in Mexico City to found Stable 8, one of the city’s premier venues for horse riding training. For context on how big this is, Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world by population.

She also had a life-changing injury that led her to creating several sources of equestrian-related income outside of her training.

Jade’s story is one that must be listened to—especially if you want to know what it’s like to be an equestrian entrepreneur in a foreign country.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why being dependent on your ridership as a source of income is inherently risky due to chance of injury.

  • How to make money beyond training and boarding in the equestrian industry.

  • Why there are so many more professional riders in Europe than in America.

  • How the idea that bad European mares being sold to Americans due to policy is totally a myth.

  • And more.

Listen to our conversation with Jade on Spotify, Apple, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.

Before you listen…as an avid eventer, you may have heard of the equine regenerative medicine device Pro-Stride APS® (autologous protein solution device) available through your veterinarian. 

But did you know the company behind Pro-Stride has been by the side of horses and their caregivers for more than 70 years?
