Nicole Pietrafeso interview upon being inducted into the NYCHA Hall of fame:

To say I’m honored to be inducted into the NYCHA Hall of Fame is an understatement. This was by far one of my biggest goals as a youth competitor and I couldn’t have achieved it without the help of so many. I first want to thank my parents for all of the long drives, late nights and early mornings we spent traveling to shows. Not only that but for providing me with the incredible horses I’ve had the privilege of showing. My boyfriend Seth who has been by far one of my biggest support systems. My two little sisters who have been another one of my biggest support systems and for always being the ones that cheer the loudest. My Uncle Mike for hauling us when my parents couldn’t and to not only him but my cousin Jason and my Aunt Vicki for everything they’ve done. The rest of my family who have supported me at shows, especially my older brother Steve who traveled all the way down to Fort Worth with us to watch me get inducted. My trainer Nate Miller who has taught me so much, helped me out, and has truly been like another older brother to me. Everyone who ever sat in my corner or turned me around. And finally to the few amazing horses I showed as a youth competitor. Gun Slingers Mate aka “Checker” as my first cutting horse who carried me to multiple finals and always stepped it up each year I advanced. And Purely Badger aka “Diva” who is one of, if not the best horses I’ll ever have the opportunity to swing a leg over. From carrying me to multiple finals, to 4 world finals qualifications, 3 of which finishing in the top 10, to youth championships, to a national championship, and so many others. This organization means the world to me and I am beyond blessed to have been selected for such an honor.
