Marlen Schannwell and Sean Lynch: This time we are two!

Welcome to Miami!

Tough work here in South Beach… It's all shorts and Ray Bans, and a little bit of showjumping! 

We need to check if we can have cash back of USDA and FEI as we spend the first 48 hours in quarantine, that means only three times a day for an hour in the stables. Rest of the day, uhm… ja, spending money on shopping, jet skiing and eating! So, it’s kind of their fault.

Finally, on Sunday we've were allowed out on the beach. Think 99% of the horses were like bombs after two days of only hand walking in the stables, and then out on the beach. People thought there was a rodeo show going on… Little Rory actually didn't mind at all while the big white stallion Hector thought that's the end of his life. 

Next issue we need to deal with, next to the sun and the overweight, is the time schedule. So you can ride from 5.30 to 7.1,5 but it's very early and dark. But, whatever: Like this we are done at 8 a.m., and ready for shops and beach!

It's pretty surreal here; Who jumps through a triple combination to only have a woman in her bikini next to the fence? For some of our male riders here that's kind of distracting! 

Jet skiing, well that was fun! It's a good job really considering it was the first time for Sean! Marlen on the other hand; "riding the jet ski"! Then comes the interesting part: Citi Bike tour to find a Starbucks! To follow is the selfie of all of us clowns! 

Remember that time in Los Angeles where all Sean’s money disappeared? Well it's happened again and again! It's just so much fun shopping, and then there is Starbucks and food! What else can you do.... But, at least we are ready for summer in our fancy clothes! 

Until tomorrow!

Marlen and Sean
