Stroh Makes the Dressage Canada Long List (Released on December 17, 2009)
Dressage Canada announced this week Lindsey Stroh and horse Lancelot, owned by Vickie and Ivars Argals, made the list of potential competitors to represent Canada in future international dressage competitions. “We are thrilled to have the official notice,” said Stroh. “I have had my sights set on competing for Canada for many years but have been seriously training and preparing for the past three years.”
Stroh’s coach and manager is Vickie Argals owner of Flying Colours Stables in Wetaskiwin. The Flying Colours team will travel with five horses to California in early 2010. They will train with Steffen and Shannon Peters and compete in four international dressage competitions. “We are privileged to get this opportunity to work along side this caliber of trainers” said Vickie Argals.
“We have three quality international horses that Lindsey will compete with in 2010,” said Argals. “The horses are members of the team and are elite athletes and are treated in the highest regard. We go to great efforts to keep the horses in sound condition, mentally and physically.” Training and competing in California will provide Lindsey, Vickie and the horses with more opportunity to gain needed experience and exposure to succeed at the international level.
Lindsey is the daughter of Barb Stroh and the late Bruce Stroh of Camrose. The Flying Colours Team is having an open house on Monday, December 28, 2009 from 2 – 4 pm if you want to see dressage in action and meet the riders and horses.
