Equestrian Australia (EA) is pleased to announce that Emma Booth will be its Para-dressage representative at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon, USA.
Booth, 27, was a reserve rider for the Australian Para-equestrian team at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.
And, at the 2016 Rio Paralympics she rode her Danish-bred horse Mogelvangs Zidane and finished fifth in the Individual Championship Test Grade II.
The Victorian-based rider said she is looking forward to competing at Tryon with Zidane in September.
“I’m just thrilled to be given the opportunity to represent Australia on the world stage again.”
“I learnt a lot from my experiences with Zidane in Rio and know that this has no doubt made us a stronger combination going forward to WEG.”
“With the incredible support from the High Performance team at Equestrian Australia and my coach, Lone Joergensen, I am going away with the best possibility of bringing home a medal,” said Booth.
