Mary Hanna and Boogie Woogie are the newest members of the Equestrian Australia Dressage A Squad.

Hanna has enjoyed great success on her newcomer Boogie Woogie. In their FEI debut at Hagen CDI (GER) the pair scored 74.895% which is Mary's highest international score as well as Australia's highest ever score at a European International competition for this level.

Hanna and her husband Rob bought the eight year old KWPN gelding in March 2013 and left him in the careful hands of Hanna’s coach Patrik Kittel. “The exciting thing is that this is only the beginning for this pair, as Boogie is also training Grand Prix and has talent for it all,” said Kittel said on his website.
