Georgina Bloomberg, an accomplished professional equestrian, philanthropist and youngest daughter of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, launched "The A Circuit," the first in a series of teen novels set within the equestrian world she knows so well. Co-written with Cathy Hapka, Georgina brings an authenticity and flair to the books that will entice as much as they will fascinate. The second novel in the series, entitled My Favorite Mistake, is scheduled to be released in March 2012.
She is also on the board and passionate about her work with the Equestrian Aid Foundation, to which a percentage of proceeds from The A Circuit will be donated.

"Giving back is something that both my parents made me realize is the greatest gift in the world," says Georgina. "I feel really lucky to be able to help causes I care about and get more satisfaction from knowing that I am making a difference in someone else's life than winning any competition."
Georgina is actively involved in several charitable organizations. She is an Equine Welfare Ambassador for the ASPCA, a member of Friends of Finn of the Humane Society and a board member of the Bloomberg Family Foundation and the Bloomberg Sisters Foundation. In 2006 she started the charity The Rider's Closet that collects and redistributes clothing and equipment to Intercollegiate Riding teams, therapeutic riding programs, and riders who cannot afford what they need.
