The Lady Joseph Trust, formed in 2009 to buy horses for our elite para dressage riders, has bought their second horse. Akilles an eleven year old Swedish warmblood will be ridden multi medal winning grade 111 rider Deb Criddle. A delighted Deb said;
I am very grateful to The Lady Joseph Trust for offering me the ride on such a high calibre horse as Akilles. It is a tremendous privilege to be chosen and I am looking forward with anticipation to developing a successful partnership with him. He is a joy to ride, being very forward thinking and so light off the aids.
Trustee Henrietta Cheetham said;
The trust is looking for horses for several of our top para riders with a view to 2012 and beyond. Akilles and Deb immediately bonded and I am delighted to be able to purchase this lovely horse for such a talented rider.
