In preparation for the trip overseas the final jog for each of the four U.S. team horses and individual horse occurred at the USET Foundation Headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. Led by Chef d’Equipe Kai Handt, the four team duos include: Grade II rider Rebecca Hart (Unionville, Pa.) and Schroeter’s Romani, owned by Rebecca Hart in conjunction with Margaret Duprey, Cherry Knoll Farm, Sycamore Station Equine Division, Barbara Summer, The Ruffolo’s, and Will and Sandy Kimmel; Grade Ia rider Roxanne Trunnell (Rowlett, Texas) and her own Nice Touch; Grade Ib athlete Sydney Collier (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and Victoria Dugan’s Willi Wesley; and Grade IV rider Susan Treabess (Winters, Calif.) and Kathryn Hill’s Kamiakin.

It is an exciting year for the World Equestrian Games with a record number of 72 National Federations declaring participation in this year’s games. Para-Dressage was first included in the Games at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ (WEG) in Lexington, KY.

Individual athlete Angela Peavy had a last minute change of horses from Lancelot Warrior to Ozzy Cooper but she is excited and prepared for her debut in France. This is the first international Games for each U.S. horse and rider combination. This WEG will be the first chance as a new team with a new Chef d’Equipe to make their mark on the international Para-Dressage world and an exciting preview for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

About Sydney Collier:  Sydney Collier of Ann Arbor, Michigan, will represent Grade Ib for the USA at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. This will be her first World Equestrian Games. Collier will be riding Victoria Dugan’s Willi Wesley, a 2000 Warmblood gelding. At age seven Sydney was diagnosed with Wyburn-Mason Syndrome after she began having blurry vision. Wyburn-Mason Syndrome is a rare, congenital disorder characterized by arteriovenous malformations in the central nervous system and retina. It affects only .14% of the world’s population and can cause brain hemorrhaging, stroke, paralysis, or death. In 2010 at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY, Sydney and her family ran across young para-equestrian Jonathan Wentz. Wentz introduced Collier to trainer Kai Handt and veteran Paralympian Hope Hand who is President of the United States Para-Equestrian Association. Not long after the 2010 World Equestrian Games Collier began training as a Para-Dressage rider eventually pairing up with Paralympic Dressage coach Wes Dunham of Millbrook, NY. In 2012, young rider Collier had not yet reached her 16th birthday before the 2012 Paralympic Selection Trials but she did earn the opportunity to compete at the 2012 USEF Para-Equestrian Dressage National Championships. The valuable experience of showing at the National Championships that year gave her the verification she needed to know that she was ready to aim for the 2014 WEG. Collier and her coach Wes Dunham have been working together over the past two years creating the perfect partnerships with multiple mounts. Collier began riding Wentworth (owned previously by Amy McIlwham) in 2013 and competed internationally with her horse that same year. In 2014 Collier added two new mounts to her line-up scoring top rankings in Grade Ib. This will be Collier’s first overseas trip for Para-Dressage and a dream come true for the young athlete.

About Amy McIlwham:   McIlwham began riding at the age of 7, at a stable close to her house in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In 2000, she began training with Ruth Koch out of Oxford Ridge Stables in Kemptville, Ontario. Ruth generously loaned McIlwham her Grand Prix horse Favorit, and she successfully competed him at the FEI Junior level for several years.

Not long after, McIlwham was offered the ride on Marzipan, a Hanoverian stallion owned by one of Ruth’s clients. She competed him for 5 years taking him to Dressage at Devon at the FEI Junior level in 2004, and to the NAJYRC twice at the FEI Young Rider level in 2005 and 2006. “I was so lucky to have such generous people around me, and such wonderful horses to teach me so much through my Junior and Young Rider years,” said McIlwham.

After graduating from the Young Rider ranks, she purchased Wentworth, a 4 year old Hanoverian gelding, from Germany. The pair worked alongside Ruth and her other coach, Albrecht Heidemann, to develop Wentworth through the levels. He competed through second level with scores consistently in the high 60s-70s, before becoming a new partner for Sydney in the Fall of 2012.

McIlwham has a Bachelor of Arts in Public Affairs and Policy Management and a Masters degree in Conflict and International Security. Currently, she works full time for the Canadian government as an Analyst for Aviation Security, and she still rides as often as she can.

Riding Highlights
-Top Canadian(7th) and Team Bronze medalist at the 2001 North American Junior Dressage Championships (with Favorit)
-Individual and Team Gold Medalist at the 2002 FEI Championship of the Americas (Favorit)
-FEI Junior Champion at Dressage at Devon in 2004
-Member of the 2005 and 2006 NAJYRC Canadian Young Rider team (with Marzipan)
