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.
