Getting Joanne & Texas to Team GB
Joanne McNicol and Texas, her equally talented pony, started training in March to qualify for a Team GB place at the Para World Driving Championships this August.
Having supported her with funding in 2018, The Park Lane Group were only too pleased to step in again with financial help.
Qualifying events during April and May were then cancelled as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
However, Joanne has sent us a photo of her training with the GB coach in Netherfield prior to the lockdown. It shows her working with Texas and wearing a training aid jacket which helps the trainer see if you are sitting correctly at all times.
With the World Driving Championships currently in limbo, it may be that Joanne’s next opportunity to compete may be deferred to the National Championships in September.
We look forward to hearing from Joanne again once training resumes.
