Lady Caroline Inchcape, dressage trainer, competitor, judge and breeder, was one of four people to receive a 2008 PSI (Peformance Sales International) award at the recent gala ball held at Ankum in Germany.
Described by the world-renowned auction house as “Britain’s grand dame of dressage”, Lady Inchcape (pictured with Monica Theodorescu) was presented with a Swarowski sculpture as a gesture of thanks for her extraordinary support of the sport of dressage.
German Olympic treble team gold medallist Theodorescu said during the presentation: “Lady Inchcape has been close friends of the PSI initiators [Ullrich Kasselmann and Paul Schockemoehle] for the past 30 years. She has been the most passionate and caring supporter of dressage. She’s absolutely one of a kind.”
