From Hof Kasselmann Dressaage in Hagen. .... http://hof-kasselmann.de/ Please go to News for details. Thank you.
I am a 17 year old Para Dressage rider who was born with Dejerine-Sottas, a rare and progressive disorder that causes muscle weakness, lack of motor control and loss of sensation.
I began riding at Penniwells RDA Centre when I was five years old to help strengthen my muscles.
My dream is to compete in the Paralympics and Win a Gold Medal. I am seeking sponsorship to help make my dream a reality.
Could you help make that dream come true?
