Lincolnshire-based dressage rider, Lara Edwards, has qualified for the prestigious British Dressage National Championships.
Lara and Bodyguard Moorland took the Cavalor Inter II Premier League title with a fantastic score of 68.29% at Sheepgate Equestrian.
Having ridden since before she could walk, Lara originally took to eventing before turning to dressage in 2010.
Owned by Lara Edwards, Bodyguard Moorland known as BG at home, is a 13-year-old KWPN approved stallion and stands at 17.2hh.
Currently based in Brigsley near Grimsby, Lara was sent Bodyguard Moorland to bring on and sell. Although he was not the biggest mover, Bodyguard has a very trainable attitude. Said Lara:
I just loved his attitude to work and training so much that I had to buy him myself.”
After six years of working with Lara, Bodyguard is now out competing at Grand Prix level. He passes on a lot of movement to his offspring and he has his own KWPN approved son.
Winning the Cavalor Inter II Premier League at Sheepgate Equestrian is the duo’s biggest achievement to date. Their ultimate aim is to compete at Olympia.
Winning the Cavalor Inter II Premier League means so much because I have worked so hard training Bodyguard for the last six years. I always knew he was going to be more competitive as he went up the levels.
He is not a big flashy mover but he is exceptionally trainable and has the natural ability to collect and therefore loves the piaffe, passage and pirouettes. This level really suits him and makes you realise all the training is worth it”
Said Simon Middleton of Zebra Products, Cavalor distributor:
Congratulations to Lara and Bodyguard Moorland, the duo went exceptionally well.”
