She has competed in the four-foot hunter division at the National finals for the last three years running.
As a junior rider, Ms. Starbuck was the only rider in the United States to be in the top six placings at all the national equitation finals including: the United States Equestrian Medal Finals, ASPCA Maclay finals at Madison Square Garden, and the Washington International Equitation Medal finals. She is also the winner of the Connecticut State Finals in 1991, and is, along with her sister, one of only two riders to ever have won the Professional Horseman’s Equitation finals three years in a row. In 1993, she was the only rider to ribbon in both major equitation finals including pinning fourth place in the USEF Medal Finals and sixth place in the ASPCA Maclay finals respectively.
