WEG Para Equestrian: Facts and Figures

Facts and Figures:
22 riders competed in Freestyle Grade 2
17 riders competed in Freestyle Grade 1b

Katja Karjalanen from Finland, bronze medallist in Freestyle Test Grade 1b "This is quite a new horse for me - Rosie (her horse) was a Christmas present!"
America's Rebecca Hart who competed in Grade 2 today "It was fun, awesome.  This is the last time I will be competing this horse because I am retiring him.  Pippin is 19 years old and he is going to live a life of luxury and enjoy his pasture.  I do not have a replacement for him as yet. 
America's Rebecca Hart "Hopefully London (Olympic Games) is next.  In all honesty, representing our equestrian sport has been amazing - to finally get included with the other riders".
Fernando Gigueroa from Mexico who finished eight in Grade 2 Freestyle today "I am new to the sport.  I hope you like it - the judge liked it and everyone else liked it too!"
