Snapshots from tropical Valkenswaard

Monday, 20 August 2012

A heat wave swept over Holland this weekend, and yesterday the tempratures reached over 35 degrees. It's not often that you see the riders without their jackets, but this was an occasion for exceptions! Here Harrie and the Nut who jumped super in the heat and finished third. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.

Beezie and Vanilla are probably more used to this kind of heat than the European riders and horses.
But Ben coped well, no surprise as he spend the winter in Wellington.
So did Emilie Martinsen, who brought the hat trend to a new level!
While Kathi Offel's son was the smartest of all, taking a swim in the water tray!
Kathi on the other hand had to ride! Here on Phebus du Grasset.

Christian Ahlmann and Aragon.

Lady Lisenhof - previously known as Nangaye de Kergane - relaxed in the heat...
...and also produced two great clear rounds with Luciana.
Ludger and Chiara.
Wout-Jan and Eurocommerce Seoul.
Rodrigo taking a rest in the sun while chatting to Philipp and Christian.
Gregory and Kronos d'Ouilly were clear in the first round.
Rodrigo and HH Ashley were double clear and ended fourth.

With 19 clear rounds it was tough to get in the top five!

And it was McLain Ward and Zander that ended up on top!
