Madonna Is Horsing Around with a British Woman
How would you like to be Madonna’s teacher?
That’s just the position British “eventer” Daisy Trayford, 27, has found herself in for the past two years.
Horse and Hound interviewed Trayford, who tells the publication that Madge, 50, bought two horses from the company she runs.
“She had the horses on trial and asked if I would go down and help get her going on them,” said Daisy. “The first year it was really busy. Last year was more difficult because she was on tour, but I was there most weekends, fitting it around my eventing.”
This week Trayford just may be jetting off to Florida to coach the recently-divorced pop star for two weeks at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival.
Louis Vuitton model Madonna flew one of her horses, Boris, to the States six months ago. Last week he was joined by the other beast, young eventer Sportsfield Silver Lining.
“As soon as he’s there and settled in she wants me to go out,” said Daisy, who says she will probably receive a mere one-day notice to fly to Florida.
Madonna’s young coach gives the singer a glowing review, and describes educating her as “really good fun.”
“She’s a dream pupil,” says Trayford. “She’s very driven, listens to what you say and just wants to do it and improve. You can always get somewhere with someone like that.”
