We are now in Mannheim, Mario, Little Pezi, Quin Air, Que Pasa and me. We got here yesterday but the show started first today.
Started the morning with the vet-check and my rider was so nice so he trotted with all three horses. Then he decided to ride Little Pezi and Que Pasa while I took a nice walk in the sun with Quin Air. It is such a fantastic weather. Now at half past seven I still walk around in my t-shirt - the summer has arrived!
After the horses got their lunch, I got mine and I also had time to lay down in the lorry for a while to look TV. Even took a walk to the giant May market. It is huge and you can buy everything here from clothes and make up to saunas and kitchen. I just visited a really small part, so I have some more to visit in the next couple of days.
The first class started at four and there Mario rode both Little Pezi and Quin Air - both did really well and Quin Air got the forth place and Little Pezi the sixth place. Little Pezi actually thinks that he is Big Pezi and got the new nickname "The King" which he thinks suites him really well. He is very cute but he can´t really understand what all the other horses are doing here - he is here and that should be more than enough!
After the first class it was time for the Warm up class for the Youngster and there my horse Que Pasa started. I bought her as a foal and I still own half of here, Mario owns the other half. Que Pasa behaved really well today.
Now it´s time to make everything ready for the night, make the boxes, bandage the horses, bring water and so on. I also planning on preparing the boxes for Rene Tebbel since he and some other German riders are coming here from Lummen, where they rode the Nations Cup earlier today. Lummen has rained away so they decided to go here instead and I guess that they will arrive in the middle of the night and to make life a bit easier on Ulrike, the groom from Rene, I will do their boxes.
That´s all for today, I will be back tomorrow with another blog!
Best wishes, Sara
