Day 3 began with a perfect weather forecast, sunshine, 25 degrees and a light breeze.
I was very much looking forward to another day of dressage at the massive Pferde International show in Munich. However, the autobahns were a mess and sitting in German traffic jams for longer than you would think possible I realized I was missing most of the tests. Sadly I decided to abandon the standstill of the autobahn, turn around and head home. Much to the relief of my poor little car! So I have a brief report for you with photos from the last two days where possible.
I look forward to getting back to the showground tomorrow (by train!) and being able to get another real report for you!
The Inter I was underway this morning with much better weather than yesterday.
The Germans were given a real run for their money by the Dutch riders and had to settle for a third place while the Dutch took out the top two spots.
The winner of the class was Sander Marijinissen of The Netherlands, riding his 10 year old brown gelding Sander. Heading home now with a win in the Prix St George on Thursday and also the Inter I today with a score of 72.053%. (Photo below)
