I might be saying this often of late. But I have LOVED reading all the stories! None of them are the same and the passion for their horse is undeniable,
I would love to share the wonderful story of Indiana Go & Dimittee Walker for the second installment of Standardbred Showcase. #transformationtuesday. A new segment through Dressage Dreamers.
Indiana Go & Dimittee Walker
Indiana Go is a beautiful 6-year-old mare by Gotta Go Cullect who has had numerous trials with one race start at Gloucester Park in March 2016. But, deeming to be too slow it was soon after this that Dimittee and Indiana Go found each other back in August 2016.
However, it wasn’t long after the new partnership was formed that they stepped out to their first breed show in February 2017. They kicked off their competition career with much success! Being awarded Champion Standardbred Mare and Reserve Champion Off The Track Standardbred. This is definitely a positive sign of many future successes for the pair in their career ahead of them.
Both Dimittee and Indiana are both learning together with only a handful of rides under their belt and enjoying every step of the way. Dimittee is busy working hard training for dressage and showing, with her main goal over the next 12 months is to progress with their ridden career and to compete in a few hack shows and dressage events.
Dimittee is certainly a girl out of my own heart with having Charlotte Dujardin at the top of her list to have a lesson with. She is one of the most influential dressage riders of this time. Dimittee admits her biggest inspiration is Laura Bechtolsheimer with Mistral Hojris, another Olympic Great Britain dressage rider.
I wish Dimittee and Indiana Go all the success with their promising future ahead. I’ll be keen to check in with a follow up story when the pair have been to their first competition under saddle.
Here are a few beautiful photos of Indiana Go and Dimittee Walker.
