Qualified Aura (new horse)  for Para Dressage Winter Grade 1a Open Championships 2015

 

 

2015 PLAN;

I have a lovely new young horse Aura and can only ask for her to have a good experience andSuccessful Para Dressage Winter Championships.

We will aim together to qualify for The Para Dressage Open Spring Championships

The KBIS National Championships and perhaps a Para Dressage International. 

 

   

WHEN I’M NOT RIDING I WILL BE;

 I am currently studying A` Level Physics, Biology and Maths and aiming for University to study Physics.  

 

 

THE HORSE I WOULD MOST LIKE TO RIDE IS;

 I have to say I really do enjoy Aura and she does look after me! She is very special.  With no saving reactions I would fall off most horses – I would, however, like to meet Aura’s father Don Schufro!

For my Coach Sarah Healing it would be Damon Hill!

 

I would also love to be able to ride my great pony Vinnie again but I am now too tall for him!!

But still own him as he did so much for me – he now helps other disabled riders at Penniwells RDA
