Para dressage rider Annie Peavy, 22, is heading for her second FEI World Equestrian Games, this time riding a different horses to the one she rode at the 2014 WEG in Normandy, France and in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Royal Dark Chocolate, or “Cocoa” as she is known to her friends, is turning out to be an ideal partner for the Florida based rider who has been trained by former Team USA rider Heather Blitz for the past five years. Four years on from her team debut at the world games and she is more mentally prepared and physically stronger—Annie cross trains in the gym four times a week, which includes boxing—she admits that she loves to punch!  She also runs 3 miles and rides a few horses every day. A student at Lynn University iAnnie is studying political science. With consistent results since the winter circuit in Florida, following the 2017 National Championship title and Annie’s experience as a team rider the pair will be heading to Tryon, NC for the games as an established partnership, physically and mentally ready to  take on the world. Chris Stafford spoke to Annie last week before one of her last shows ahead of the games.
