Olympic Diary 9: Taking a Breath of Stadium Air

Wow, the backdrop of the Olympic Stadium is really very impressive for us riders.

And even without spectators. Right now there are a couple jumps in the ring that arereally funny  - geez... if I had to jump over those .... HELP ME! I guess I really do prefer piaffes, passage and pirouettes ... those are difficult enough.

Everything is here that you could possibly need for to prepare yourself: a lunging circle, a warm up arena, an indoor and then the stadium. Still on the trailers: the judge's boxes  - they are all-glass.
