Little girl, big horse, huge dream coming true

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A little Poway Girl asked her parents to buy her a horse and then rode that gift all the way to a world championship show. 

Three times a week, nine-year-old Nini Hodge is the first person to arrive at Miller Equestrian to saddle her own house named Henry. 

Nini's mother Pam said what her daughter lacks in size, she makes up in spirit. 

Nini has won 13 titles in the past year, including second place at a world championship horse show in Oklahoma. 

Her parents bought her Henry and pay for lessons and traveling. 

Pam said Nini can ride Henry until the cows come home, if that is what makes her happy. She does not want Nini to make the same mistakes she made when she was growing up. 

Not only is Nini winning competitions, she is also getting straight A's in school.
