Sponsored Trainer Highlight: DQ Performance Horses


Ana DiGironimo is a USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalist and owner of DQ Performance Horses in Swedesboro, New Jersey. Ana started her riding career at the early age of three, and found a love for dressage by age eight. Ana's level of success as a junior and professional rider has been long standing; having competed both nationally and internationally since 1997. DQ Performance Horses specializes in developing the complete horse and rider as a partnership. Ana enjoys teaching lessons and training horses and riders of various breeds and levels, respectively. DQ's mission is to create individualized programs for every student in order to help them achieve success in every level.

Currently, Ana has a successful training and sales barn, where she strives to provide classical training with a modern twist. Ana's goals involve the success of her clients, but also keeping the heart of the sport and correct technique as its prime focus. She has a large group of adult amateur and junior riders she devotes her time to on a daily basis. In 2022, these clients had 75%+ scores throughout the competition season including undefeated adult amateur riders, Regional Champions, US Finals top placings, and many USDF awards.

What does Ana have to say about Kingsley and The Distinguished Rider?
"Kingsley boots are like no other brand you will ever ride in. Having tried many brands through the years, I can hands down say what a difference they make in my riding and my clients. Finding both comfort and durability along every [with] custom option you could possibly dream of. For me, the absolute biggest advantage is having a close contact feel with your horse without having the sag most other soft boots give. Kingsley is a brand I will not stray from.

Marissa and the TDR team is fully committed to giving every rider exactly what they want. I feel very privileged to be apart of the TDR Sponsored Rider Team. TDR is truly a company who gives top notch quality in every area and has a passion to match."

What is Ana's favorite Kingsley Boot Model?

"My favorite model is the Olbia! I have 5 pairs in total and cannot wait to design my next. Some of my pairs include the amazing fleece lined winter boot, funky cheetah designs, classic black with patent, gray and denim design, and two tone black and brown alligator. No matter your style or taste TDR will outfit you perfectly!"


At this time, DQ Performance Horses is ramping up for the 2023 show season. They have a large group this year heading out with a variety of goals from schooling shows to competing at CDIs. The facility DQ is based at is undergoing renovations to the outdoor arena which will allow them to host clinics and other events late 2023-2024. Ana is also looking forward to building up her social media presence with the help of her new PR Manager.
