Adequan® U.S. Para Dressage Team Hoists Bronze in Orifarm Healthcare FEI World Para Dressage Championships at Herning 2022
The Adequan U.S. Para Dressage Team captured the bronze medal in team competition to stand on the podium in the Orifarm Healthcare FEI World Para Dressage Championships at Herning 2022. The team finished on a final score of 225.335 behind Denmark who took silver on a 229.751. The Dutch team won their second consecutive FEI World Championship gold, finishing on a team total of 230.225. The Orifarm Healthcare FEI World Para Dressage Championship will conclude tomorrow with the FEI Para Dressage Freestyles across all grades with the four U.S. combinations set to compete.
Chef d’Equipe Michel Assouline commented on the team’s ability to overcome challenges and bring new, young horses into the spotlight while continuing to deliver top performances on the highest level – another building block to the program’s success after last year’s Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and their team bronze.
“What we have done really affirms our position on the world stage. We got the bronze in Tokyo and to get this bronze again here means that it wasn’t a fluke, and the level of performance is great,” said Assouline. “I’m absolutely ecstatic with what they’ve done as a team here, and very proud of this team, and these girls.”
