While attending the USEF Para-Dressage Symposium there was a Para-Driving Clinic going on simultaneously at the Rancho Murieta Equestrian Center. Diane Kastama was gracious enough to let us drive Rupert, her Welsh Cob, through the cones on Tuesday. Hardy Zantke, who has served as Chef d’Equipe since 1996 for thirteen U.S. Teams which brought home five medals, stood in to help get us set up and lead us through the cones and our first driving experience.
It was a blast and I can't wait to try it again! Thanks for the experience!
