Vale View worked really hard to create a lovely atmosphere and they couldn’t have been more helpful. And for once the weather was tremendously on our side!”

“The weekend was a huge success with lots of teams from around the country in attendance. Over the two days our four riders had the most consistent scores and team member Amanda Shirtcliffe posted the highest score of the whole competition.  It was great having the KBIS classes running alongside the home international as it gave grass roots riders the chance to compete alongside World Class riders. Most of all though was the wonderful atmosphere – somebody even commented to me about how friendly para dressage was.”

In the qualifying classes for September’s 2013 KBIS Para Dressage Championship (held at the BD National Championships, Stoneleigh Park) there were the following winners: Sophie Christiansen, Lee Pearson, Erin Orford, Natasha Baker, Roberta Sheffield and Sophie Wells.

The 16 year old german bred gelding was previously owned by Ferdi Eilberg, and ridden by his son Michael, who took the horse to first place at Prix St Georges level back in 2008.

“Chuffed to bits” with his ride Zion, despite tension in the indoor arena, was Paralympian Lee Pearson (pictured below) who scored 71.724% in the Grade 1b Individual class. Lee said “He warmed up in the outdoor like an absolute dream, he was so relaxed and in front of the leg. When we went in to the indoor for the test he got a bit upset and tension crept in so he went behind the leg and was a bit tight. At one point he cantered into a trot transition – I had to have a word with him afterwards to remind him that he’s a Grade 1b horse, and we don’t canter!”

Lee has been concentrating on Zion, whom he has been competing on and off since 2010, following the retirement of his Olympic horse Gentleman at the end of 2012. “Gentleman has retired from para dressage now and order online at usa pharmacy! buy doxycycline fish . top offering, walmart doxycycline price. is having a lovely time in his new home doing a bit of jumping. So now I’m concentrating on Zion and I really love him. I’m normally known for liking more ‘blingy’ types but he’s got the mentality of a cob and I love it! He makes me giggle. I get on him and hack him about everywhere on my own, I just really love riding him. We’re aiming for Hickstead and Hartpury and I’m also looking for another International horse with the help of the Lady Joseph Charitable Trust.”
