Roberta Sheffield to Represent Canada at CPEDI3* Al Shaqab in Doha, Qatar

Ottawa, Ont. Jan. 26, 2015 — Canadian Para-dressage rider Roberta Sheffield, based in Lincolnshire, ENG, will compete in the invitation-only Al Shaqab CPEDI3* Para-Dressage event from Mar. 5-7, 2015, being held in Education City, Doha, QAT. 
Coming off an excellent performance at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, where Roberta narrowly missed a medal in the Freestyle test, Sheffield and Double Agent, her eight-year-old Anglo European mare sired by Donnersohn, are honoured to represent Canada in this prestigious event.

“I am so excited to have been given this amazing opportunity. What a way to start this exciting year,” said Sheffield. “We have been working hard over the winter to prepare for this coming season. I never dreamt it would start off in such a glamorous way. Thank you to the organizing committee for inviting me and making this opportunity possible.”

Accompanying the horse and rider team will be Mary Longden, Canadian Para-Equestrian National Team Coach, and Suzy Mainprice, Double Agent’s breeder, as Sheffield’s groom.
