Full speed in the Ride & Drive - part one

Friday, 05 June 2015
CHIO Aachen 2015

A happy Bertram Allen after winning the class together with team Boyd Exell.

It was full speed and a lot of action in the Ride and Drive in Aachen. First the riders jumped a course before they left their horse and ran to the four-horse carriages to take them full speed for another round in the arena. Here we see a happy Bertram Allen after winning the class with team Boyd Exell. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
