Equicizer News!
June 2014

Prepare to be inspired...  

  

We Are Proud To Announce -

  

In early June, 16-year-old Para-Equestrian and Equicizer owner Sydney Collier was among 23 other horse and rider combinations who competed in the World Equestrian Games U.S Para-Dressage Selection Trials at the USET headquarters in Gladstone, NJ for a chance to compete at the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in France later this year. Team Equicizer is proud to announce that shortly after, Syd was notified that she had been chosen to be on the para-equestrian team representing the US!

 

The path to get to this point has taken Syd and her family - specifically her mother, Anna Collier, who travels with her - all over the country competing and preparing for this moment. Her Equicizer, Wyburn, who is part of her normal training routine, has played an essential role in her journey.

 

If you would like to support Syd on her trip, you can check out her website: www.sydsparaquest.com and while you're at it, give her facebook page a "like" to stay up to date with all of Syd's current happenings leading up to the World Equestrian Games!
