Katie Dinan has had a busy few months. It's her first year representing the United States in senior competition, and she's not been wasting any time. She’s competed at Nations Cups in Hickstead (Great Britain), Dublin and Spruce Meadows (Alberta), scoring clear rounds at Hickstead and Spruce. Then she had strong finishes at the Zoetis $1 Million Grand Prix (N.Y.) and the American Gold Cup (Ohio). So this fall she’d been planning to settle in and focus on her sophomore year studies at Harvard University (Mass.).
But one phone call changed everything.
