Hi Alex,

Well done on representing your country at the Beijing Olympics, 2008! Even though the results weren't what you had hoped for, you still made history by being the first equestrian rider ever, to represent China at an Olympic Games.

Your committment, professionalism and sportsmanship are a credit to you. Your dedicated sponsors, family and support team gave their all and worked so hard in your preparation.

This team effort sets a standard in our sport to which many should aspire to and which will raise the bar in the future. WELL DONE!

Here's to a vision for 2012! Good luck with your studies and in the future. I shall look forward to hearing more about your journey and I am so glad that Fiddle can be part of it, it would make his parents very proud. It does me!

All the best, Vanessa x
