Dutch Dressage Team Joins US Eventers at Lavender Hill

Boyd on Remi and Edward Gal on Glock's Undercover
 The Dutch dressage team has moved into Lavender Hill Farm in preparing for the Olympic Games. We are lucky enough to be sharing the stable with some of the greatest dressage riders in the world.  The Dutch team consists of Edward Gal riding Glock's Undercover, Anky Van Grunsven on the great Salinero, and Adeline Cornelissen on Parzival.  They are a very friendly group of people that were very interesting to meet.  It was awesome watching them train their horses today.

Tomorrow Team USA leaves this wonderful stable that we have been lucky enough to call home for the last five weeks .  All of the horses jumped and galloped today, and look to be on fire for the Olmpic Games.

  1. What fun but I'm disappointed that you and Edward are not wearing hard hats in the photo. We all look up to you both so much!

  2. As you can see, Boyd just took it off for the pic

  3. If you look closer at the photo, Boyd has his helmet under his arm. Probably took it off for the photo.

  4. Unfortunate choice of terms in the last sentence

  5. The Dutch Team is equally lucky to have met all of you. Your village is the crème de la crème.
