Meet the Canadian Paralympic horses!

When Alan Manning, the Canadian Team veterinarian, posted some nice photos of the Paralympian horses I thought you would like to meet them all. So here they are.

Onyx who will be ridden by Winona Hartvikson
Fairuza who will be ridden by Roberta Sheffield
Lieutenant Lobin will be ridden by Jody Ellen Schloss.
Sandrino who will be ridden by Lauren Barwick.

I think these Paralympian horses are a very handsome group and they will all do their best for their riders. Today, August 25,will be the first veterinary inspection (the horses are examined and also jogged up and down on a straight line to make sure they are sound and well before competing) The competition will begin on the 26th .

Once again, my thanks to team veterinarian Alan Manning for these photos.

      They are. All the paras horses are very well bred and move well and look very good.

      These horses are truly magnificent. Not just for their looks but also for their attitude and care of their Para riders. Thanks for your comment Lesley..
