Team spirit must be in the heart of every athlete.
Team sport is important to young people’s developmen and is a great school of life. Young riders must learn what it means to be part of a team and what it means to contribute positively to its success. To compete in team for your country is a very important mission in an athlete’s life.
Team sport is about managing yourself and helping others to manage; when individuals get this right, then the potential of the team grows exponentially. These concepts are even more important in riding: equestrian sports are different from all others sports because the athlete is ‘a pair’, not only a person but a horse with his rider.
Thanks to the relationship between rider and his horse, equestrian sports are unique, charming, exciting like no other sport. It is also one of a handful of sports where men and women compete on equal terms. To be part of an equestrian team improves nobility of spirit, because your are a team with your horse and with other pairs. All riders, trainers and supporters think that the Nations Cup is the best competition and every rider aspires to be part of the Team of his Country in Nations Cup.
Animo believes in team spirit and supports teams in the Olympic disciplines, such as New Zeland Eventing Team, Swedish Jumping, Dressage, Para-Dressage and Eventing Teams.
