“We would like to wish Felicia a speedy recovery and a return to 100% health from her recent injuries and hope that Felicia can attend the 2017 ISDE in a supporting role” stated Trophy Team Manager Derek Rockel.  “Felicia has been an integral part of the Canadian women’s program and its continued growth, being part of the teams strong showings put up since 2013”

With the addition of Melissa Harten, the team is adding an experience rider known her for attitude not to shy away from a challenge.  “The addition of Melissa Harten provides us with a rider who will not be intimidated by an event like the ISDE” continues Rockel. “We are excited that Canada can add a rider of Harten’s ability and shows that the country has depth in the women’s field to offer a strong showing for Canada against the world’s top riders.”
