Working in the equine industry you sometimes get some very proud moments and today is most certainly one of those!!! 3 years ago my phone rang and a lady asked if I wouldn’t mind taking on the training of her daughter who competed in Para Dressage and had high aspirations. I have to admit that I didn’t know a lot about Para having only stepped into that world a little. We meet, chatted about her aspirations about riding for her country and being awarded that red Union Jack badge.
We started our quest, throwing ourselves in at the deep end, watching each test, taking away the comments, working hard to improve and she did improve, the scores went up, the placings went up. The recognition that was deserved came from the powers that be and today I am so so soooooo proud to say that she has been selected to represent her country and the European Championships in Rotterdam!! They say that dreams can come true and this is a prime example. We are looking forward to working with the rest of the team in what will be a super fun trip!!
