I am sure by now everybody has heard about the very sad passing of Jo Pitt. A massive shock and loss to the Para World. As there are so few riders in Para Dressage it is like an extended family as you see the same faces each time you compete. We got to know Jo and her mother Hazel quite well over the last few years and, as she was of similar age and personality to me, it hits home quite hard when something this tragic happens. It really makes you put your life into perspective and realise that the little things in life are not important. My heart goes out to Jo’s family and I can’t even begin to imagine how they are feeling right now. We will never forget her and what a remarkable and determined lady she was.
