Promotion of Para-equestrian team – Asociación Equitación Positiva
The 2nd target of the cooperation agreement signed in 2018 with Asociación Equitación Positiva, from Oviedo, and Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre was the promotion of their Para-equestrian team.
The para-equestrian team participated in several classifying competitions and in national level championships, like the Dressage, Masters and Adapted Dressage Spanish Championship, held from May 31st to June 3rd at the Castilla y León Equestrian Centre. 4 riders, 3 horses and 3 coaches attended the meeting, classifying as follows:
2nd position in Grade IV Criterium – Mateo Iglesias Rico
4th position in Grade III – Loreto Iglesias Rico
Silver Medal Grade II – Covadonga Álvarez Loy
Bronze Medal in Grade I – Fernando Fernández Rodríguez
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre fully supports this kind of initiative, aware that competing is a very motivating experience for horsemen and women, specially in paraequestrian sports and boosts their implication and commitment.
