Equine Canada is pleased to announce that Desi Dillingham, MBE, Special Advisor (dressage), has graciously agreed to spearhead building and leading a team of experts to design and implement programs for Canada’s current and future international dressage stars. After an in-depth review and interview process to fill the role of Technical Advisor / Chef d’Equipe for dressage, it was decided not to proceed with filing the role at this time, and that the best course of action for the future of dressage is to draw upon Canada’s own immense pool of expertise and diverse resources. The goal is to create a team that will work collectively to design and implement world-class programs supporting the efforts put forth by Canadian athletes in their quest to represent their country at the highest levels of competition.
Change is in the wind in Florida! Lionshare Dressage is now owned and operated by Caroline Roffman who is hot, hot, hot after her very successful European debut this past summer. Former partner, Endel Ots, is spreading his wings and has set up Endel Ots Dressage at Bethany and Rose Peslar’s Everglades Dressage. The split was an amiable one and we expect great things from both camps!
And if you haven’t heard, Courtney King is pregnant. SO is it a little king or dressage queen in the oven? We may just have to wait and see! Congrats Courtney!
