About Us

President: Carl Hester MBE

Olympic medalist Carl Hester MBE has long admired the work of the Trust to buy suitable talented horses for our elite Para riders.

“Team GB Para riders have won medals at numerous Olympic, World and European Championships. Having the right horse power to retain our position as a leading Para Dressage nation is crucial and the horses supplied by the Trust have been vital to that success”

Trustee: Henrietta Cheetham

Henrietta has competed at all levels from Novice to Grand Prix and the majority of her horses have been produced by herself from youngsters.

Henrietta has competed for GB at Small Tour and is particularly successful in young horse classes.

Trustee: Iona Joseph

Iona retired from business and now indulges her passion for tennis as a player and a spectator. Iona enjoys watching Henrietta compete and has a great love of horses and all animals.

Iona was delighted when Henrietta suggested they form a charitable trust in her late mother in law’s name to buy horses for para riders to help keep Great Britain the top nation in para dressage.
