EQUESTRIAN TEAM TRAINING DAY WITH ALEX HUA TIAN, CHINA’S TOP OLYMPIC EVENT RIDER & SARAH HIGGINS, BRITISH GRAND PRIX DRESSAGE RIDER
Our Captain, Darcey Wilkinson (Year 12, Carus)
These two talented professionals had our riders and their horses sussed within minutes and gave them invaluable advice to work on. Alex and Sarah mentioned
Our riders and parents had a tour of their impressive yard and met past and future Olympic horses including Don Geniro, who went to Rio 2016. We learnt about training schedules and what it takes to compete at world class level. We finally watched an inspirational dressage demonstration of Sarah Higgins teaching a future Asian Games dressage rider on her beautiful horse.
Our team came away from the day buzzing and will put into practice all the advice given over the next few months of training. The team wish Alex and Sarah all the best for the coming season and would like to thank Darcey for organising the memorable day.
