Todd Flettrich:  From being an Olympic contender to coaching some of the best riders in the world to international success, Flettrich is a veteran of the competition arena and sought-after trainer and mentor.

A native of New Orleans, Flettrich began his dressage career at a young age and won individual gold and team silver in the 1991 North American Junior/Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC). He went on to coach Catherine Malone to the individual gold as a Junior and Young Rider

In addition to riding against the best in the world, he has helped other riders achieve success, and continues to train Margaret Duprey.

Todd Flettrich is a veteran competitor and trainer at the FEI levels of dressage. He began riding at the age of 12 and trained with such wellknown horsemen as Jessica Ransenhousen, Robert Dover, Odet Shimoni, Sue Malone Casey, Steffen Peters, Kathy Connelly, Christine Traurig and Hubertus Schmidt.

Flettrich served as Region 1 Coach and Chef d’Equipe at the NAYRC from 1988 through 1994. He earned his United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Silver and Gold Medals and is also a graduate of the USDF ‘L’ (Learner) Judge Program.

In 2010 he rode Otto, owned by Cherry Knoll Farm, during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. In 2012 Todd qualified with Otto as the alternate of the United States Dressage Team for the London Olympic Games.

 

 

 

Shannon Dueck: Born in Austin, Texas, Shannon grew up outside of Vancouver Canada.  Her mother Jacqueline Oldham was an “S” dressage judge in both Canada and the USA, and instilled in Shannon a love and knowledge of classical dressage from an early age.  Shannon was lucky enough to grow up with horses in her backyard, and evented to Intermediate level as a teenager, as well as show jumped and worked on the Thoroughbred racetrack.  She went through the Pony Club levels to attain her “A” status at the age of 18, and also got her Canadian Coaching Level 2 status.
After completing a Bachelors degree in Animal Science at the University of British Columbia and a Masters degree in Equine Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at Texas A&M University, she went on to become faculty at Lakeland College and Olds College in Alberta, Canada, and then moved to Massachusetts with her husband Lorne to take up a faculty position at Johnson & Wales University.
In 1994, Shannon spent many months training in Holland as a working student for Bert Rutten – this was when she decided to get serious about dressage.  She rode in her first international competition in 1995 in California, and was long-listed for the Canadian Equestrian Team in 1996 with her mother’s Madison.  In 1995 she sold her last event horse and bought her first real star, Korona, as a 3 year old from Bert Rutten.
Shannon trained Korona from the beginning.  The partnership was very successful, beginning with an Individual Silver Medal at the Pan Am Games in 1999, they never looked back.  Korona and Shannon represented Canada successfully at the Grand Prix level for many years.  In 2002 at the World Championships in Spain they were the top Canadians, finishing 23rd in the Grand Prix and 25th in the Grand Prix Special.  After winning the Canadian League World Cup Final in 2002, they represented Canada at the World Cup Final in Sweden in 2003.  In 2003 they were also a part of the Canadian Team at the Open European Championships in England, which secured an Olympic berth for the Canadians at the 2004 Olympic Games.  In 2004 they had a very successful training and competition tour in Holland, Germany and Austria, but did not get to represent Canada at the Olympics – Korona was ill during the Canadian Olympic Selection Trials.

Since those days,  Shannon has been busy training other horses and riders from Training level to Grand Prix.  The many horses she has trained to the FEI levels and competed successfully on include Leoliet, Pegasus, Amazing, Ringo Starr, Control IV, S Infinity, and Sentimiento II.  She absolutely loves teaching her students both at home and at the shows,  and many of her students have been with her for years.
It took her many years to find her next international superstar, but she bought Ayscha in Germany from a friend as a 6 year old. Ayscha was supposed to be sales project, but Shannon soon found out that she had talent for Grand Prix, and decided to keep her and develop her as far as possible.  With very limited show experience, Ayscha began Grand Prix in 2010 as a 9 year old.  Shannon and Ayscha were part of the Canadian Team which traveled to Europe with Robert Dover and they competed successfully in many international shows in Germany that summer.  In 2011 Ayscha and Shannon headed to Great Britain to train with Carl Hester,  where they competed at Hickstead and London Olympia as well.
Shannon has had wonderful coaching all her life,  from the very beginning with Klaus Albin and Dietrich Von Hopfgarten in Langley British Columbia with her event horses.   In her adult life she has had extensive help from Bert Rutten of the Netherlands,  Lars Peterson of Denmark,  Kathy Connelly, Robert Dover and Steffen Peters of the USA,  Hubertus Schmidt and Wolfram Wittig of  Germany, and most recently,  Carl Hester of Great Britain.

About Gigi:

Gigi broke her neck in the spring of 1999 while riding in an event, resulting in incomplete quadriplegia.

Initially paralyzed from the chest down, she is eternally grateful for having the opportunity to regain her mobility!

Gigi had extensive riding experience before her accident:
1970-1976 Working student for May and Denny Emerson

1976-1979 Working student and barn manager for Gunnar Ostergaard and Ellin Dixon

1979-1983 Working student/groom George Theodorescu in Sassenberg, W. Germany

From 1987 through 1999 Gigi evented several lovely horses with lots of help from Bruce Davidson, culminating in completing the CCI*** and CCI**** at Rolex Kentucky 3-Day in 1997 and 1998!

Six months after her accident, she started to ride with Jane Cory, the owner of the Cort Center for Therapeutic Riding at Pleasant Hollow Farm in Pleasant Valley, PA.
She initially asked Missy and Jessica Ransehousen for help just before the WEG in 2010 and has been lucky enough to enjoy their expertise ever since. This past year has been a whirlwind of qualifications for the London 2012 selection trials, including successful trips at back-to-back CPEDI ***s in Wellington, FL, as well as shows at Morven Park and Dressage at Saratoga.
Married, since 1983, with two grown children, Charlotte (27) and Cameron (25), her husband, Brian, is a retired Banker.

Olympic Endowment for the Support of Athletes.

The William E. Simon Olympic Endowment for the Support of Athletes was established in 1998 by Mr. William E. Simon, Sr., former U.S. Olympic Committee President and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Grants for training and competition are awarded to athletes showing financial need. By creating this fund, Mr. Simon recognized the importance and many personal benefits of participating in sports. Awards are made once a year.

Roxanne Trunnell began her Dressage journey as an athlete when she first started her own business as a teenager to finance the purchase of her dream Warmblood horse. That dream came true in 2003 when she purchased Nice Touch (Touché). With a top-notch horse and a full riding schedule, Trunnell began making her way through the able-bodied Dressage ranks, earning her Bronze medal along the way. On October 31, 2009, life as she knew it changed forever when Trunnell awoke that evening unable to stand up without falling over. After a series of events and the best medical specialists around, the official diagnoses was inconclusive. In 2013, Trunnell got back in the saddle and started competing as a Para-Dressage rider. In less than a year she went from developing rider to internationally ranked para-dressage athlete. In 2014, Roxanne Trunnell was named to the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games U.S. Para-Dressage Team. Trunnell competed with her own horse Nice Touch during the Normandy, France, Games.  As a high-performance international Para-Dressage rider Trunnell is aiming for a spot on the U.S. Paralympic Equestrian Team at the 2016 Rio Paralympics.
