My name is Daniel Bates, im 19 years old and i am a Grade V registered blind para dressage rider but compete in able bodied dressage also. I recently completed a Level 2 Equine Diploma in horse care and management and am now a full time dressage rider. I live in Staffordshire but travel to Gloucestershire 4/5 times a week to train with International Dressage rider Levi William Hunt. I was lucky enough to be runner up in 2018 in Shearwaters Search for a Star competition and they have been there to support me and i am proud to be able to represent them and their brand. I am out competing regularly and hope one day to represent Great Britain in the sport of Dressage and show there is no limit to what you can achieve with the right team behind you.
