  2. Great story of a rider of modest means working her butt off, getting a great ride, and making it pay off. So happy to see Charlotte's kind of riding being rewarded at the top of dressage. :D

    1. Hopefully we'll see more and more of this kind of riding, maybe the "LDR" training will finally disappear.
