The NRG Team is delighted to sponsor Danielle Weymark, a lovely young lady from NSW, who is aiming to take her new horse 'Champagne CF' aka Charlie to the Paralympics in Rio 2013. We will be following Danielle's journey in her quest to qualify. With her talent and determination, we're sure Danielle and Charlie will have a bright and successful future together.
"Hello, my name is Danielle Weymark and I am an NRG sponsored rider. I compete regularly on my Warmblood mare Champagne CF (Charlie) who is trained by me and my coach Judy Fasher. Charlie and I will compete in both Open Dressage and Para Equestrian Dressage, and we are aiming high for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio De Janeiro!
At 14 months of age I contracted Meningococcal Disease resulting in amputations, stunted growth, skin grafts and scarring, and deformity of joints resulting in chronic pain and arthritis.
I have owned Charlie since August 2012, and she has come far in this time. At our first Dressage competition we won first place and have since moved up the levels. We are now moving on to Elementary level as we are consistently scoring in the high 60's at open novice level and always place. We are yet to have our first Para Equestrian Dressage competition together but I'm really excited to see what the scores will be!
NRG No-Nots works wonders in Charlie's long, very thick tail! We always get comments on how beautiful and shiny her tail is at competitions. Although Charlie eats her feed without fail at home, she finds it really hard to eat at competitions, resulting in low energy. This is where our NRG Stockgain come in! She was having molasses but we found NRG Stockgain is much more beneficial when it comes to vitamins and minerals and now I don't have to worry about Charlie not eating!
Our journey to Rio is going to be a great one especially with the NRG Team behind us!"
