Bader Grant Recipient, Para Dressage Rider Richard Neumann is delighted to have been able to resume training after the long lockdown lay off. His equine partner, Otto, may not be quite so delighted… All this work takes it out of a horse and a nice lie down is too good to cut short!

In the meantime, all is well in the world of Echo, Richard’s first competition horse. He is now living in contented retirement and has found himself a rather beautiful girlfriend!

We’re very grateful to Richard for sending us these heartwarming updates, which we’ll continue to share with you. Lessons start again in July when work will resume in earnest and we’ll keep you informed as Richard and Otto continue to pursue their dream of competing for their country as a Para Dressage team…
