The ultimate dream for British rider Lee Pearson, winner of nine gold equestrian medals at three Paralympic Games, is to compete in the Olympic arena one day. The Paralympic dressage legend continued his invincible record in Hong Kong over the past week, winning three golds with his horse, Gentleman, in the individual Grade Ib championship and freestyle, and the team event. 'I am very pleased with my performance,' said Pearson, 34, who was born with arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that left his matchstick limbs bent and twisted. Following his success at the Paralympics, the sportsman has set his sights on the Olympic Games. 'It's probably more a dream than reality. But you never know.' Pearson's confidence stems from a series of impressive achievements he has made since turning professional in 1996. Before the Beijing Paralympics, he was triple dressage gold medallist at both the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Paralympic Games. The talented rider has won numerous titles in world and European competitions, including a title at the British Dressage National Championships when he beat all the able-bodied athletes. Last year, Pearson was named the first chairman of the newly formed athletes' committee of the International Equestrian Federation. Pearson started riding horses at the age of eight when he found himself unable to ride bicycles as his two brothers did. After keeping it as a hobby for many years, he discovered the possibilities of competitive disabled sport when he watched the dressage event of the 1996 Atlanta Paralympics on television. 'Dressage as a sport is very powerful and exciting when it's done properly,' he said. 'It's always an amazing feeling of freedom.' On this, his second trip to Hong Kong, Pearson said the equestrian facilities in the city were the best he had seen. With the Paralympic equestrian events now completed, Pearson is looking forward to a long holiday. But already the London Games in 2012 are on his mind. 'There may be a huge amount of pressure on me to compete in my home country,' he said. 'I still dream of getting three golds for my nation.'
