SED/PL003 MICHELLE CRUNKHORN
Michelle Crunkhorn is a grade 4 Paralympic Dressage Rider. Michelle has a congenital disability: her left arm finishes just below the elbow. Apart from the left arm she is an able-bodied person. Michelle is looking for help and support to make her dream come true. Michelle had a dream to compete at the London 2012 Paralympics and lost it. "Diamond, the horse that she bought for London 2012, suffered a severe case of laminitis in January 2010. Laminitis is a very complicated hoof problem which we believe was caused by a shock to his feet by snow. A very long battle to try to get him sound to be brought back in to work failed and sadly he was put to sleep in July 2012. This was a very difficult time for Michelle. The 2012 Paralympic Dressage team was announced and she had to sit at home watching it. Michelle is now looking to achieve the dream of representing Great Britain at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France and the Rio 2016 Paralympics. Michelle was talent-spotted for her riding abilities after the Sydney Paralympics in 2001. She won a Bronze medal in the 2003 World Championships, was part of the Athens 2004 Paralympics and the 2005 European Championships and in 2007 she won team Gold at the World Championships. Michelle had high hopes for Beijing but the horse that she had been riding was retired after the world championships, which left her with no horse. Michelle bought Diamond, thinking forward to London 2012. In 2010 it all went very badly wrong for her; as a family we did everything possible to try to get Diamond sound. Luckily Michelle was given a horse (Sam) to ride which kept her riding and kept her hopes alive. This year we bought Sam for Michelle and she has started competing him. After not competing for over two years Michelle has started to look to the future again. With sponsorship she can make her dreams come true. Please contact us and look at Michelle’s website to see all of her career results both in Para Dressage and British Dressage. Any sponsorship would be greatly appreciated - it will help with training, travel and competing at shows. Opportunities will also be available for sponsors to have their name on the necessary clothing, merchandise and the horsebox. Sponsors can also attend shows and come to training days or visit the home stables. Please contact Michelle". Contact: Michelle Crunkhorn. Address: 112 Cotgrave Lane, Tollerton, Nottingham NG12 4FY.

SED/001 HANNAH DOGGETT
This is an opportunity for sponsors to be involved in a popular sport which is thriving after this year's Olympics success. Hannah Doggett is an up-and-coming young dressage rider who is looking for sponsorship to fulfil her aim of competing internationally next year. Hannah has trained with international Grand Prix rider Lisa Marriott for four years and took her previous horse up to advanced level. However, injury to the horse left Hannah with no ride. Fortunately Lisa stepped in and offered Hannah the ride of a lifetime on Lisa's international horse, Saphira. Saphira has won thirty-six first places, twenty second places, has qualified for five national championships and been invited to compete internationally at both Biarritz and Seville. She is trained to, and has competed at, Grand Prix level. Hannah aims to be competing her at most of the premier league shows all over the country next year, as well as qualifying for the regionals and the nationals and being invited to international competitions. Hannah moved from the north west to the south east where there are more opportunities for developing her talent and furthering her career. She is 100% dedicated to success. Hannah would be interested in and grateful for any form of sponsorship. Sponsors would have their name on clothing, merchandise and the horse trailer. Contact: Hannah Doggett.

SED/002 FlaTwOrkMUSIC
The compulsory music and marking system used for FlaTwOrkMUSIC competitions was originally created for use in conjunction with current British Dressage Freestyle2Music testing. The objective was to help redress the current system's imbalance of having 70% of marks being awarded for technical merit while allowing only a subjective and arbitrary 'general impression' mark for the music element. Consideration was also given to the fact that current competitors who have music professionally fitted to an existing floor plan are in fact gaining advantage from a skill that is not theirs. The newly written Compulsory Music system underwent extensive trials in New Zealand from November 2009 to March 2010. The trials themselves were very successful, and the choices of attractive music and simple application concept gave rise to many 'straight dressage' competitors asking to run the compulsory section as a stand-alone competition, so that they could experience the joy they witnessed in others riding to music. The standalone competitions went ahead at Level 2/3 (Novice/Elementary) in three New Zealand venues with all entrants completing questionnaires about their experience. The overriding conclusions as to why so many dressage riders had not previously ridden Freestyle2Music were related to a lack of ability and time needed to produce suitable music for themselves: costs of having it done professionally were also a major disincentive. While everyone who took part perceived that they themselves were more relaxed and that their horses moved better while riding to music, they believed that sourcing suitable music and the editing required to make an acceptable soundtrack for Freestyle was a skill unrelated to equestrianism and many found the prospect of doing it themselves bemusing.

Jo is based in Scotland and travels throughout Britain training and competing with the goal this year to compete internationally. Having spent a five year apprenticeship with Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Hester after leaving school, Jo returned to Scotland to train and compete her own and client's horses. She has now trained with Carl for seventeen years and travels monthly eight hours to Gloucestershire for up to five days of training. Jo also gets valuable training from Olympic judge Stephen Clarke. She has produced both of her current competition horses from four year olds and it is hoped that they will both have international careers.

Vivaldi has already had an outstanding career having won five national championships and coming second in another five championships, as well as having two Premier League wins. Vivaldi debuted successfully at Prix St.Georges level, having already gained qualification for regional championships. Hopes for this year are to gain placings at Premier League competitions and national championships and be selected to compete internationally. Corchapin is only a six year old but is already showing great promise having won a national championship and coming second in four championships. He will compete nationally this year in six year old classes and at Elementary and Medium level. For further information on Jo and her horses, please see Jo's website - www.jobarryequestrian.co.uk.
