Four years later, Madden was named the United States Olympic Committee's Female Equestrian of the Year for her participation on winning U.S. Nation Cup teams. She has also won back-to-back honors as USEF Equestrian of the Year - the first rider to do so. Madden continued to make history as she was the first woman - and first U.S. rider - to reach the top three in the Gandini Show Jumping World Ranking List and was the first woman to pass the $1 million mark in earnings for jumping. She helped the U.S. team bring home gold at the 2004 Athens Games, and her success in the United States that year earned her the American Grand Prix Association Rider of the Year title. She added team and individual silver medals at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games. Madden won her second consecutive team gold at the 2008 Beijing Games and won an individual bronze as well. She will be pairing up with Coral Reef Ranch's Coral Reef Via Volo in London, and together they have won many competitions, including team gold and individual silver at the 2011 Pan American Games.
