New Paralympic Hopeful for Australian Team Rider Emma Booth

Australian para dressage team rider Emma Booth has obtained the ride on a new horse in this 2024 Paralympic year. Booth will be trying for Paris with Saimir.

Saimir is an 8-year-old chestnut Hanoverian gelding by Scolari out of Wyonna (by Weltmeyer x Wendenburg x Grande). He is bred by the Walther brothers.


Owned by a syndicate consisting rider Marco Bührig, and Klindworth & Piontek sport horses, the chestnut gelding has been competed up to M-level.

Tatjana Piontek made Saimir's show debut in 2020 in the riding horse classes and showed him up to A-level that year. As of 2021 Marco Bührig has been competing the horse at regional shows in the north of Germany. Their last CDN together was in Worpswede in September 2024 at M-level, which they won.
