Happiest of birthdays to equestrian powerhouse Beezie Madden! We are big Beezie fans here at JN, often encouraging our readers to adopt a #BeLikeBeezie mentality. In honor of this superstar’s special day, we thought we would share some of our favorite Beezie moments here on JN!
Today’s the day! Please join us in wishing Beezie a very happy birthday! 🎊🎉🎂🎁🎈
To kick us off, how about Beezie’s recent win with Garant at the American Gold Cup?

Or her CSI05* win at Spruce Meadows with Darry Lou?

And not only is Beezie a winner, but she is one heck of an advocate for education as well. We love all of her #MaddenMethod videos she and her team have started putting out on YouTube.
You rarely see images of pros DIY’ing it at the show, but the internet went wild over this image of Beezie cleaning her own tack after winning Bronze in the Pan American games. #BeLikeBeezie
One thing that I love is that she doesn’t walk around and act like she is 100% perfect 100% of the time. Like the time she called herself out online for galloping up to a big ‘ole chip.
So, here’s the thing…no matter how good you are, sometimes you gallop up to a big chip. 😆🙃😱The best thing to do after one of those moments is to say a BIG thank you to your horse for the save. 🙌Thank you Jiva! 2nd place finish in the $35,000 Accumulator at the NHS today. 🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕#beeziemadden #stillonlyhuman #weallmakemistakes #thankyourhorse #whatagoodmare #ittakesateam

I think it’s pretty clear that we love Beezie, but if we haven’t made it obvious maybe you should check out this tribute penned by HN’s former Managing Editor, Kristen Kovatch.
So have a super happy birthday Beezie! We hope it is as special as you are!
