We would like to introduce you to WOW ambassador rider, Jane Lishman. Jane is an incredibly tough cookie, being a bi-lateral amputee after an equestrian accident, and WOW is very proud to be associated with this admirable lady. Here, she tells us some more about herself and her riding:
“I only have the one horse, called Lordana Tg, aka Ginger; she is a 15.3hh chestnut mare, an eight year old Hanoverian by Londonderry. I bought Ginger last June after she failed at BE 90cm eventing with a young girl; she had originally been imported as a foal to become a broodmare, but did not make the required height. I am a bi-lateral amputee and am in a wheel-chair, but she didn’t seem to mind my chair, or the way I had to mount from a raised table. We are now going from strength to strength, and I compete in both Para and able bodied dressage; we won the Prelim Winter Regionals and came 10th at the championships, we also won the Para Grade II Winter Para Championships, and we are now competing CPEDI 3*. My WOW saddle is the ‘Bounty’ – it has a stock saddle seat, but with dressage flaps with no knee rolls, and Ginger and I both love it,” Jane says.
We wish Jane all the best with her current campaigning, and will share more news on Jane later in the season with our social media friends and followers.
More about the Bounty
This is a beautiful, technologically-advanced dressage saddle with a deep profile seat designed to offer supreme support and comfort. The stock seat gives a secure and comfortable riding position; it offers a longer, larger seat without it being a longer saddle. The panel of the saddle measures 18”, so it is suitable for all horses. The WOW Bounty is specially designed to cup the rider’s seat and provide ultimate support. It offers the horse supreme comfort, and the seat can be used with the full range of differently designed flaps in the WOW range, be it fixed or moveable knee blocks, giving the ultimate in rider comfort and stability.
