I have never been to a horse riding competition show and I was delighted when the opportunity presented itself. My friend Emily (another expat from Maryland!) is an expert on horses, she has even competed before and owns a few back in the States. It makes this experience even more wonderful. She was so kind to explain how they communicate with ear movements and their body language. It was a great morning with great company. I'd say that this is one of those top memories of being here so far!
To have the Rathaus as backdrop of the competition is unreal!
An American won!
After announcing the winner from the U.S.A, they played the National Anthem. It was reminiscent of being at the Verizon Center for Washington Capitals games that Hubs and I frequented. Really brought it close to home and a twinkle in my eyes.
