February 2006

New Para Equestrian Website Launched

Welcome to my new website! Back in January 2004 I launched my first website which aimed to inform people about dressage for disabled riders - www.disabled-dressage.co.uk.

However, we decided it was time to update the site, both techinically and in name, as the term 'Disabled Dressage' has now been superceded by the term Para Dressage or Para Equestrian. I hope this site will be useful for existing Para Equestrian riders and to people wanting to get started.

As before the site will have news about me, my horses and my sponsors.

The new site will also be a resource where you can find out about specialist products for disabled riders - or for any dressage riders. Click here to see our dressage equipment and products page.

Horsebox for Sale


We've finally decided it's time for a larger horsebox!

Our little Mercedes has been a reliable member of the team for many years now but I need a lorry with larger living accommodation for when we have to travel to competitions down south. This box will suit anyone wanting to transport two horses or ponies up to 15.2hh. The Luton is large enough to sleep two peole for occasional trips away from home.

See below for the full specifications, and contact us if you are interested in seeing more images. Tel: 01535 636008.


Reliable D reg, Mercedes 609D. Non-HGV.

Good runner, regularly serviced and well maintained.

6mths Tax and one year MOT.

Through cab and day living with cooker, sink, saddle rack. Large Luton.

Stalled for 2 horses/ ponies, rubber floor, telescopic partitions, rug rack, bridle hooks, easy ramp & outside lockers.

More photos available by email.


BD Regional Winter Semi Finals

Hannah Moody has qualified Winnie for the British Dressage Winter Semis.

She wil be competing in the Open Novice at Myerscough so good luck to them and lets hope they get to the Finals!


Natalie and George


Natalie Noble who now owns my old pony, Jon Boy George is having great fun and success with him.

They took part in the trials for the Regional Byrds International Team so might have a chance of competing in Ireland.


Competition in Canada added to International Calendar

I competed in Toronto in 2004 at the Canadian Para Dressage Championships and have kept in touch with Jen and Vi McKenzie who we met there. They told us that they were hoping to run another Canadian competition, this time in Vancouver near where they live in British Columbia.

The competition is on 1-3 September and I would love to go and compete there and see our friends again. The Canadians are quite a force to be reckoned with as they have two very strong riders - Karen Brain (Grade IV) and Lauren Barwick (Grade II) and asquad of other talented riders. Visit the Canadian Para Equestrian website.
