Today the sun came out before we even had started and did let us know what Brazilian spring ment. I decided that it was a day for not wearing the jacket and dressed in my blouse only, especially because of my duty. I was going to be in the sun most of the time. Competition started at 10 am and the last rider finished shortly after 5 pm. The following sign did make life a bit easier 😁. This way I continued to bring everyone who was needed to the media, giving me the chance to get a glimpse of every ride.
and some people it gave a good laugh.
Competition itself was tight and we did see a lot of really good rides in both Grades (IV and Ia). Thanks for letting me join the crew. It ‚ s fun working with all of you.
All the horses looked pretty good, but the Brazilian friendly horse was a class of its own.
The grooms village were. I sleep is really close by, we just have to get up a ramp, salute the soldier, pass a little bridge… For me by passing this bridge I do enter a different world, I do enter Brazil… it smells different, reminds me a lot of Africa, because I mostly smell woodfire… I start hearing the animals, sometimes you see a lizard or even a „monkey“. I just wish I would have more time to explore the country side and it’s culture and people. But this is not for now… but maybe there is a chance of coming back.
