Champion Dressage Rider And Trainer Featured On SoCal's Best

Dec 13, 2010 - 9:19 AM

Time Warner Cable’s SoCal’s Best proudly presents a “Behind the Scenes” special on champion dressage rider and trainer, Kristina Harrison.  In her own words, Kristina describes the rewards of riding, training and the joy she derives from training her daughter Rison to ride and compete in dressage.


Kristina Harrison achieved renown as a dressage rider when she qualified for the 2003 Pan American Games on her horse “Kantor.”  As a member of the U.S. Equestrian Team she helped bring home the Team Gold Medal. 


In 2006, she won the 2006 U.S. Dressage Federation Intermediate 2 Horse of the Year, aboard “Rociero “, a white Andalusian stallion owned by Margret Carrera of Auburn, California.  The following year, she rode “Rociero” at the Grand Prix level, the highest level of dressage, where she placed third in the 2007 U.S. Equestrian Federation National Grand Prix Championships. 


Today, Kristina continues to compete and train other riders and horses in dressage.


The story was videotaped on location at Angele Farms, within the Paddock Riding Club in Los Angeles, CA.  Additional footage was recorded at the LA Equestrian Center during the 43rd CDS Championships, Sunday, October 10, 2010.
