“My horse, Kasper, was so fantastic. I was one second out of 4th place and eight seconds out of first place in marathon. That’s a second or two per obstacle! It’s my fastest score and with a horse I didn’t show regularly. We’d come out of a turn and he was just on it!” exclaimed Diane. Sharon Jantzen captures Diane’s story of her experience at the 2018 Para-Equestrian World Championship for Single Drivers.

Jere has had success where others doubted: “I had a mare come in to get fit after a severe injury in which she gloved her hind limb and sustained some damage to the tendons.
