Competition Season has Started Again – Update from Richard Neumann

Para Dressage Rider, Richard Neumann, started the month with his first competition of this much-delayed season. His competition horse, Otto, was still resting so stablemate, Smartie, stood in.

Richard reported that Smartie worked very hard for him and while delighted with the horse’s faultless performance he was less delighted with his own and has come away realising the need to work on his ringcraft. On a positive note it sounds as though with a few points ironed out, Richard and Smartie could have got a very decent score, which bodes well for future competitions.
