Congratulations to Emma Cassat on her half lease of the GGES horse Chester!
Emma started leasing Chester after having lessoned on him for a couple months. Emma attends Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa and started riding many years ago when she was a child. After doing some hunter/jumpers when she was younger she moved into the 3-day eventing world where she then was able to do an internship with Stuart Pittman for a few weeks last summer! With her useful skills from some OTTB horses she's ridden/helped re-train she and Chester make a wonderful team!
Chester was originally purchased back in the summer for a beginner lesson horse to add to the Green Gate Equine Services lesson program. He quickly decided to get rid of that little plan though when he figured out how to access his "go button" under saddle! He LOVES to jump and with his hot Arabian blood kicked in he and Emma have been rocking through some jumper stuff at home and we can't wait to see them in a show ring! Emma has also been working on some dressage with Chester too and we think he will have some great potential to do some 3-day stuff as well! So happy that Chester and Emma are becoming such a great pair! Look for them in the show ring soon!
