Selection for Richard Neumann

Selection for Richard Neumann

We are so proud of Bader Grant recipient, Para Dressage Rider, Richard Neumann who has just received confirmation of his selection to represent British Dressage in the South and East Region at the Para Home International.

Selection for Richard Neumann, who had been told he’d never walk again, represents an incredible achievement. Not only did he prove the doctors wrong regarding the walking, but then took up riding to boot! He discovered that he had an aptitude for it and began to compete; the rest is history. He has been riding for only 6 years, 2 of which were in lockdown, and in that time has gone from complete beginner to selection to represent British Dressage. Well done, Richard, and, of course Smartie “a true super star”, his current competition horse.

The future is looking positive too as Richard has just taken on a young horse called Kisper who he describes as an amazing prospect. He has sent some wonderful photos and videos of this very beautiful and spirited youngster and I will post them after Easter. Such joie de vivre is a delight to see! For now you can enjoy the taster above!

Richard is understandably over the moon to have received this news:

To say I am happy would be an understatement Richard Neumann, Para Dressage Rider

It is worth remembering though that it is sheer hard work, determination and commitment that has brought about Richards’s success. He has an incredible work ethic and the Bader spirit in spades! Huge congratulations from all at DBF!
