We are absolutely thrilled to tell you that WOW Ambassador rider Julia Horton and Premier Joyfull Moon are the country’s Para Restricted Summer National Champions! Julia led the field by a wide margin at the recent event, taking the title with 73.8%, over four per cent ahead of the runner up.

She had previously been placed second in the individual championship test in the preceding days, and also won the Novice section with 69.55%.

“Wow what can I say – Joyce and I have won the Para Dressage Summer Championship with the unbelievable score of 73.8% – every single thing we have worked on came right this weekend – I was able to just sit and enjoy the ride,” Jules tells us. “Dreams really can come true, as this was mine.”

Jules is one of the most inspirational riders we know – “I knew I never wanted to do anything else in my life but ride,” – however in 1999, her life totally changed when she got Hodgekins Lymphoma stage 3B; her chemotherapy left Jules with many physiological health challenges. Jules rides in able-bodied competitions, but in Para contests, rides as a Grade 3 Rider.

Here is a beautiful pic of the talented Joyce.
