Michael's new horse is a 16.1 black mare by Don Schufro.

 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?
