Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg JSC has provided financial support to the combined para-equestrian dressage team of Saint-Petersburg, having ensured its participation in the Victory Cup dedicated to the memory of Zina Portnova and held on March 31 – April 1, 2018 in the Leningrad Region.

For the combined team of Saint-Petersburg this competition served as training for the coming Championship of Russia on Para-Equestrian Dressage in Moscow. Soil and pavilions of the Derby equestrian club which hosted the competition are equal to those in Moscow.

Thus, both the riders and the horses could practice in similar conditions. The results shown by horse/rider teams during that try-out were quite high that justifies the intentions of the sportsmen comprising the combined team of Saint-Petersburg achieve a respectable result at the Championship of Russia. The three-day programme included the pre-training at the fields as well as training for team and individual competitions.

«Being of the same mind with a horse and mental determination account for 50% of success at any contest, or, probably, almost 100% when it comes to physically-disabled athletes, – explains Olga Sochevanova, chief coach of the combined para-equestrian dressage team of Saint-Petersburg, founder of Therapeutic Equestrian Centre “Sunny Island». – I’m sure, regional competitions will help achieve an excellent result.»

1. Yevgeny Nikolayev – TEC “Sunny Island”,
2. Galina Pavlova – TEC “Sunny Island”,
3. Nina Anufriyeva – TEC “Sunny Island”,
