Lee Lee JonesLee Lee Jones competed at the one star level in eventing. She achieved many riding accomplishments in her career. Lee Lee, a 22-year-old graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania, was cantering around the exercise track at the Duttons’ True Prospect Farm in West Grove, PA on an unseasonably warm day when the horse she was riding bucked, slipped and fell. Thankfully, she was wearing a helmet.
The horse landed on Lee Lee, and she was airlifted to Christiana Care Hospital in Newark, Delaware. After spending more than a month in the Intensive Care Unit, she started the long road to recovery at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital in Malvern. Once she was cleared to return home, Lee Lee has been recovering there with support from her family, friends, and rehab support. Lee Lee is doing better everyday and we are so honored to help her in her recovery. #Leeleestrong #teamleelee
Was a member of the United States Pony ClubSally Cousins is a driving force in the field of eventing who has been named the U.S. Eventing Association’s Leading Lady Rider for the last six years. Sally started riding at the age of 5. She was a member of Pony Club and competed at her first 1* in her mid-teens. In 1986 she competed at Badminton Horse Trials and also accepted a job as a stock broker at Merrill Lynch. She continued to compete at the highest levels and work full time.
After 16 years at Merrill Lynch, she decided to become a professional and devote herself exclusively to her riding career. In 2005, she purchased property in Aiken, SC so she could compete and provide instruction for the three months of winter when Pennsylvania is covered in snow and ice. Thanks to a successful competition schedule and the depth of experience she garnered as an amateur and a professional, she has been ranked among the top 10 riders on the US Eventing Leaderboard for the last six years. Her career highlights include multiple appearances at top-level events such as the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, Badminton, Burghley and Fair Hill International. Based out of Oxford, PA, Sally loves training horses and riders of all levels and helping them progress in their training and experience. She credits her varied experience in horse sports as helping her develop as an all-around horsewoman, and often draws from her own experiences and lessons when instructing students and their horses. http://sallycousins.com/

Sydney Collier began riding at the age of 7 and instantly fell in love. A short time later, a routine vision screening led to a diagnosis of Wyburn-Mason Syndrome, a life-threatening condition that causes arteries and veins to grow together causing vascular malformations (AVMs) inside the brain. Collier's AVMs quickly began affecting her vision and the control of her left side. Over the course of eight years, Collier endured a series of experimental treatments. During a risky brain surgery in 2009, Collier suffered a massive stroke. Despite the setback, she was determined to get out of my wheelchair and return to the sport of riding.
Collier represented the U.S. Para Dressage Team at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ (WEG) Normandy 2014 with Victoria Dugan’s Hessen gelding Willi Wesley. Later that year, Collier was named the USEF Junior Equestrian of the Year and was recognized by the FEI with their Against All Odds Award. The award recognizes a rider who has persevered through extreme challenges, as Collier has with the effects of Wyburn-Mason syndrome.
Collier achieved her longtime goal of competing at the Paralympics in 2016 when she represented the U.S. in Rio de Janeiro, riding Western Rose.
Since June 2019, Collier has been competing with All In One, Going for Gold LLC’s 2009 Hanoverian gelding. The combination made their debut on the Adequan® U.S. Para Dressage Team at the 2019 Adequan/USEF Para Dressage National Championships and Tryon Fall 2 CPEDI3* where they placed third individually and were part of the team that won first place.
In 2020, Collier rode All In One to second-place finishes in the team, individual, and freestyle tests at the CPEDI3* at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) 3 in Wellington, Fla. The pair went on to win the Grade I division at the 2020 Adequan/USEF Para Dressage National Championships in Tryon, N.C.
Collier and All In One kicked off 2021 as part of the winning Adequan U.S. Para Dressage Team at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, where the pair posted scores in the 70s across the individual, team, and freestyle FEI Grade I Para Dressage tests. At the Perrigo Tryon Summer Dressage CPEDI3*, Collier and All In One helped win the team competition and again earned scores in the 70s in the Grade I classes. At the 2020 Olympics, Sydney earned a spot as an alternate for the US Para Dressage Team.
