A former eventer, Ella made the switch to dressage and in 2022 she purchased Norbert Zed (“Noah”). Noah is a Prix St. Georges schoolmaster who was originally imported as a jumper from Germany.

Recent test collective comments Well presented test with energy; Be sure that shoulders lead in half pass; be more aware of where movements begin and end; horse needs to stay in front of leg; clean flying changes.
Challenges and evasions Noah will sometimes curl behind the vertical and drop the connection. This is most often a sign that we have lost some impulsion. Noah anticipates movements and flying changes.
