Kiwi dressage rider gets the Wombles
Tue, 04 Sep 2012 3:17p.m.
The Wombles may be better known for inhabiting Wimbledon Common but a Kiwi dressage rider will bring them to south London's Greenwich Park at the Paralympics on Tuesday.
For the freestyle to music discipline, Rachel Stock has bypassed the usual fare of rock and classical and instead opted for the music of the furry creatures from the 1970s television show.
"We (Stock and her horse Rimini Park Emmerich) are performing to the music of the Wombles," she said.
"The Wombles composer, Mike Batt, is coming to see our test on Tuesday.
"We were looking for something British to perform, but most of the obvious options had gone, and we settled on the Wombles.
"We had to buy the airing rights, and when Mike Batt heard about it he said he would come along to Greenwich."
The 42-year-old Stock competes in the grade three event.
