Sponsored Rider Announcement
Kate Dwyer (IRL) is Freedom Saddlery's latest sponsored rider.
Kate was Irish National Champion in 2012 on her stallion Reve D'Or and a member of the Irish Senior Team at Hickstead National Cup 2013. Kate and her mother Maureen have ridden to Grand Prix.
Kate was aiming to gain her final qualification points to represent Ireland at WEG this summer, but tragically her Grand Prix horse Reve D'Or was euthanized following serious colic in March 2014. Simply heartbreaking for Kate and Maureen.
Freedom Saddlery is delighted to sponsor Kate and is looking forward to building a great partnership, supporting her in her future dressage endeavours. Kate is another 'one to watch' for her future is bright indeed.
Pictured below is Kate and her PSG horse 'Fabio' on a recent trip to Ireland.
