An Atlanta, Georgia native and avid equestrian since elementary school, Caitlin first began competing with much success on the Atlanta area local circuit. She transitioned impressively to the A circuit under Trainer Susie Fried in 2008, placing well in the highly competetive field of Children's Hunters. Although her riding career has been set aside due to serious injuries Caitlin suffered in a severe accident in 2009, she spends as much time with her two horses as possible. Whether she will be able to compete again remains to be seen, but Caitlin remains an upbeat, funny, inspirational young woman known to millions around the world, even in spite of her hardships.
Caitlin did not intend to become famous. As always, she was merely being herself, a highly spiritual and caring girl, when her sincerity, beauty, and vibrancy caught the attention and affection of a young man who was destined for "un-Beliebable" fame, Justin Bieber. Although time has brought different things into their lives, Caitlin and Justin, and their families, remain close friends to this day.
When Justin asked Catilin to be his girlfriend, curiosity about her exploded on the internet around the world. Caitlin has a Twitter following of over 700,000 internationally and her Youtube page has over 12 Million views! One only need "Google" her name to see how many Facebook fan pages and fake profiles appear for Catilin Victoria Beadles. Translation: when Caitlin Tweets, Facebooks or Youtubes - people listen - millions of them!
Those who know Caitlin know that she is far more than just Justin Bieber's first love. She is an extraordinary girl who serves as a shining example of a young woman who is secure in who she is, in her faith, morals and sincerity. Her talents as a rider are God given, so we at Judge My Ride and Style My Ride are proud to know her and have her as an Ambassador. Caitlin represents all the talented riders out there whose path to their equestrian dreams is far more difficult than many of their peers. Her journey to ride again is one which takes time and patience, and we are praying and rooting for Caitlin every step of the way:)
