What an epic adventure! Our 12th ever dressage test and we qualified and got to Nationals. No, we didn’t get placed but we got there. Coralina was amazing and dealt with the huge crowds, the vast spaces and hundreds of horses with aplomb. I even remembered my test, a huge achievement for an autistic rider with quite a few learning impairments! Thank you to dedicated coach and mentor #TessaSeed, #RVRC, support crew Team Glengorse and of course little Coralina, who sashayed off the lorry after a 200 mile journey with her natural zest for life.
The same week we went to Nationals we were awarded a special bursary award for dressage from GBPRE. See those sparkling white gloves I’m wearing and those luxe Lemeuix dressage saddle numbers? We got to nationals looking the part all thanks to the award from GBPRE and our amazingly patient trainer Tessa Seed, who drove us to Nationals. Without the GBPRE award we simply wouldn’t have made it to nationals, let alone raised our game to look the part.
I am humbled and astonished this opportunity came our way. Namaste
