    Paras Talent Spotting

    Dear British Dressage & Para Dressage Training Trust

    We would like to thank you all for providing a fantastic weekend of talent spotting. It was a lovely friendly atmosphere and both our riders thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Both have brought back a lot from the weekend and are keen to pass it on to other riders at the centre.

    Penniwells supports all riders on every level and were thrilled to hear the results for Mari and Michael on our return.

    We would also like to thank the sponsors of the event through BD and PDTT as this is such a valuable and inspiring experience for all who take part. Also, The Worshipful Company of Saddlers for the prizes given. Riders from Penniwells have attended for 3 years now and have seen improvement in the standard of riding and skills. All those involved in organising this event have been so helpful and supportive along the way and we hope to continue to take part in the future.

    Our riders have asked for me to add a few words of their own:


    “I really enjoyed the experience of being taught by such recognised judges. I leant how to get the correct bend and adapt it to the pony I was riding. It was an amazing experience to win and I am very lucky to have Sarah Healing, such a good coach that got me this far and to have the backing of Penniwells RDA Centre supporting me. Without her we couldn’t have done it! By going in the middle of the day I had a very long wait both before and after my test. During this time it was good to meet and chat with other riders. It was really special that Lee was there to give out the awards.”


    “I attended the BD Para Talent Spotting on 23rd February, I had a great time. This is my third year taking part. I learn lots from Talent Spotting and I have improved each year. I think the competitors really enjoy being taught by top judges. It is interesting to meet all the other competitors and to talk to them. People from all over the country are able to take part. I would like to say a massive thank you to my brilliant coach Sarah Healing and a big thank you to the Penniwells Team for all their support. Also BD and PDTT for putting on the event.”

    Yours sincerely
