A horse which is owned and trained at an equestrian centre in March will take part in the world’s most prestigious equestrian event.

Bindro T (known as Dino) will be ridden by Roberta (Bert) Sheffield, who is representing Canada as a Grade 3 para rider, at the World Equestrian Games.

Ms Sheffield has her sights set on a medal at the event, which takes place in Normandy and runs from August 23 to September 7. Eve Little, who runs Knights End Equestrian in March, has owned and trained Dino since he was three years old.

Ms Sheffield also now stables her own horse Double Agent (stable name Darcy) at Knights End.

Having only ridden Dino since February Ms Sheffield has competed on him in the UK, Germany, Holland and France with impressive results, helping her get selection to the Canadian team.
