Michael JungA touch of RIO 2016 could almost be felt in the air today as we launched the CICO3* - NC Dressage this morning and set off the first riders in the 4 classes on the demanding and technical XC course.

What a fantastic day it´s been - The riders and horses has been as striking as the sun today, resulting in a rewarding day with lots of great sport. Lots of water to both humans and horses keeps everybody on top – and an occasional carrot perhaps to the horses!

We could not have asked for a better start as we kick of the 14th edition of The STRZEGOM HORSE TRIALS. The sun is shining from a blue sky so it´s perfect out door weather for both horses and riders. Caps, sunglasses and shots are everywhere! Fingers crossed that the sun will stay on for the weekend.
