Mari’s Only Gone And Done It!!

Wonderful news! The extremely talented and unbelievably gutsy Para Dressage rider, Mari Akhurst, has achieved what recently looked like an almost impossible goal. 

With her equine partner, Sky O’Hara, on loan from Glesni Owen, Mari has been selected to represent Team GBR at the European Championships which will be held from 21-25 August in Rotterdam. Mari has worked incredibly hard to reach this goal, which couldn’t be more well-deserved; we are so proud of what she has achieved and, of course, will be rooting for her and the team in Rotterdam. 

You are a star team, Mari and Sky and a genuine inspiration!

Dreams do come true! Mari Akhurst
