Pictures from San Remo


I must say the atmosphere at San Remo is amazing! So calm and nice!

According to me it is a small show compare to the big show facilities that has poped up around everywhere! I think it is still important to go to clubs like San Remo who has a old tradition of organizing horseshows for jumping! 

Even though everything is not the newest, it is a beautiful show that I would recommend you to ride! The ground is good and the people are friendly! Really beautiful jumps also!

These wonderful pictures are made by Miriam Protino! Very talented girl, in both photography and riding ๐Ÿ˜ƒโญ๐Ÿด

Clear round for Duc๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿด

Started the day with morning riding Alf (as yesterday) together with Skin and Calla! 

Quick breakfast in the truck, change in to my riding clothes and start Ice Tea in 135

After that it was quick on Duc and ride him in the Grand Prix qualifier. Me and Duc was start NR 2, and i was one of the last in the 135 with Ice Tea, so we had to be quick! Duc and me was double clear ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Picture of Duc and me๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ice Tea and me ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
In the same class I was NR 42 with Alf’i, so after Duc we took quick care of him and saddled Alf and I went to the warm up with him while Skin put studs in Calla for her start in the class after! With Alf I lost both my stirrups before fence NR 1, and was concentrating on getting them back to fence nr2, came to close and had one down! But Alf was perfect! Really good! 

When I was finished with Alf we went quick to the stables, tacked him off, when skin went to change her clothes I started to plait Callas mane! Then I walked the course with Skin and finished to plait Calla! Of course I helped her in the warm up, jumps, jacket/ water/ the whole kit! Skin was really good with Calla today and she was more cool! They had a very good round!

Check out me with the groom backpack

Alf’i ribbon today ๐ŸŽ–

Started the day with morning riding Alf’i together worn Skin and Calla! Calla and Alf’i waiting for us this morning. 

We worked the horses low and relaxed! Both horses was good! 

Happy face! 

First start for me today was Alf in 130! Don’t worry, he got to go back to his box and eat and relax before going to the warm up! It was a jump of class and we were clear in the first round, and got to go out and come back again for the jump of! First round!

Jump off! Went worn just my show shirt to the jump off! Also clear๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ and ribbon ๐ŸŽ–

Ice Tea and Duc jumped the Grand Prix qualifier! 

After the round of Alf it was really hot and I felt it is to warm for the horses to wear the sheep skin, so CWD the rest of the day 

Next one was Duc! He was really really good! Took a lot of chances and went inside everywhere! He was TOP๐Ÿ˜ƒโญ๐Ÿ’– we were clear on jumps but got one time fault, time was very short! 

I had a good round with Ice Tea also, 3 down! Totally on me! He was super 

Next up was Skin and Calla! The 125 started right after the Grand Prix qualifier, and Ice Tea was one of the last starts! So we had it all planed, I took care of Ice, she put studs in Calla! Then she went to change clothes and I put ice on Ice Teas feet!!


 Then we walked the course, I plaited Calla, and we saddled her together! 

Skin and Calla was super today! Or Calla was HYPER in the ring and wanted to jump everything at once! Skin did a really good job controlling her as good as possible, since the horse had a rocket in his a..! Well done Skin! 

I helped out a little in he stable, mocking our to Ice ๐Ÿ˜ƒ him and Calla are the most piggy horses we have! And then I went to the pool!  Pool outfit/snap chat

Bikini of the day 

Cool with the small stones in multiple colors on the top
Nothing more special than that today! Went back to the truck, ate, gave some cuddles to the horses! Took a run down town, back to the truck! More food and then bed!

Homeย 

After having to take some detoure’s when we were driving we arrived late late late at home! We came at midnight, long trip!

Tina took Ice out, I took Duc and Skin took Alf!

We walked the horses a bit and put them back in the boxes 


Duc was so happy to be back in his own appartment! Rolled over in the fresh shavings x 1000


We took of the tranpost rugs and bandages, let the horses be naked a little bit before they got their “home” rugs on 


We also put the hay under the water cups to make sure they can dip the hay in the water to drink more, -if they like!

How the truck looks like after hours of hours of traveling


Now we are going home to bed! Night

On our way homeโค

FRANCOISโคIM COMING HOME๐Ÿ˜

After the class yesterday I went to pay for the show and Skin packed the equipment! 

Even though it’s the last day at the show, it was plenty of drinks, candy, cookies and donuts for Skin on the tack box ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿญ 

After I had paid, we took a little brake, then I helped Skin take the rest of the equipment outside and pack it in the truck 


For the heavy lifting Tina and Magne helped us 

After that Skin walked the 3 chestnut boys while I feed them for the evening and put on the bandages and back on track on! So they are ready for the transport in the middle of the night! 

Skin went home and to the hotel where she lived with Tina and Magne and I went to sleep in the truck! 

At 02.00 in the night I woke up and feed the horses with the hay brix/cubes that I had put in water at 20.00 the evening before! 

Ice Tea seemed happy to get some night feed


Duc and Alf was really sleepy! 

Duc was so sleepy that he did not even “attack” the food like he does! He attack it in a sweet way, not taking the ears backwords against us humans, he is super friendly with all people 

Went to bed for can 30min, and woke up 02.45 again! Took down the water buckets and filled them up with Hay cubes/brix and water for the trip! 

Tina and Magne came, and we put the horses in together ! First Alf, the Duc in the middle and Ice Tea in as last horse!  Skin was sleeping at the hotel and are driving the Yaris back home when she wakes up! I think she will be waking up and starting to drive around 06.00 in the morning

I drove the truck first in the night, while Tina and Magne was sleeping in the back!

The guy who works at Ferrari is always with us sitting in the front


When they woke up they came to me in the front to hang out

And yeah! We have loads of candy!

I drove to the diesel tank is “empty” then we stopped, filled the tank, feed the horses

Tina and me did some team work, I gave her the buckets, she was wearing the rain coat and went between the horses and put the food in the crib! She wears the rain coat so the horses won’t spill on her so much ๐Ÿ˜‰


 and gave them water, got some Burger King for us and changed the driver 

We also prepared food for next stop! Random gas station man supervising me filling water in the buckets  

Now Tina is driving and I’m chilling in the passanger seat! One of the few times I have ever been sitting here 


I always have the same truck driver outfit! When I’m a little cold  I wear this addidas tights under ๐Ÿ˜‚


This is the top of my truck driver outfit ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ’

 I’ll update again when we are home

Last morning in Oliva for this time

Flat work time for me and Ice Tea and this is my outfit before start 

When I came to the stable Skin and Ice Tea was waiting for me!


 Me and Ice Tea has some issues, in the ring he is very strong and motivated to jump as fast as possible, and when I try to go in the pase I want it becomes a bit of a fight between us! I have ridden him with a twisted bit, and he respects that, but yesterday’s class then bit was to strong. And I don’t want to ride to much with twisted because they can create wounds in the mouth. So this is what I am trying today! Pessoa with two reins and a sheep skin on the nose! But before I decided if I will start the Bronze GP with him today, I wanted to ride over some poles in the flat work ring to see how it feels and if I have a shot to make it work! 

The bit worked good and I was able to have a fine contact with him without fighting! So I took the decision to jump in the afternoon!

When I was finished riding I did some cuddles with the horses! Normally I ride Alf in the morning before start also, but I thought I try today to go early with him to the warm up and work a long time before start! I’ll let you know later how it goes! Here are me and Alf cudgeling 


Snap chat with Skin and Alf 


I had time to hang out and chat with my BFF Hannah ๐Ÿ’–

Since Duc was not jumping today me and him went for a walk together๐Ÿ˜ he is so sweet! He really knows that he is my private horse, and that we belong together! You know, that it’s me and him! He always keeps a eye where I am, he always smiles at me, and always try’s he’s best! If Ice Tea takes his ears backwards at me for tightening the girt or something, Duc “jumps” as much as he can out of his box and try’s to bite him! So cute! 

Now I need to jump in to my show clothes and go walk the course for Alf’i

Pool timeย 

Since we were finished early today the whole gang went for some pool time!

All 4, yes inclusive Magne (sterke mannen) had our new bikinis/bading gear,- and we were really just “goofing” around 




This pool is at the apartment hotel where Tina, Magne and Skin lives! Cost only 750 euros for a big apartment with room form 5 people for 2 WEEKS!! Good deal I would say! 


We got loads of sun and relaxation 

I went for a run on the beach when the sun went behind clouds! I saw these little “sea animals”, does anyone know what they are?? I never saw anything like these before

Back to the stable to do some horse cuddles with my chestnut team ๐Ÿ’– Duc, most happy horse in the world I think  

Alf, hiding behind Alf 

Looking the same way


Looking grumpy  


Looking at each other 


And Finally looking at the camera 

I could not cuddle with Ice, cause he was out walking with Skin, Duc monitoring, him and Ice are good friends when it’s not feeding time

Btw, a good tips from me to you, hang up two water buckets so your horse always get enough water 

Last night in Oliva for this time, and the gang went to the mall and took the usual selfie in the glasses shop At the glasses shop we also saw this little friend! So sweet that the owners take so good care and have a wagon for him 

Girls 

Selfie, my outfit, All Chanel except for the Skirt, it is from I was 14 years old and the brand is Only! Haha, it’s a oldie, but goodie๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ˜‰

Places in the Silver Grand Prix with SUPER DUC๐Ÿ˜

Duc has been totally awesome this weekend!!! Clear and placed Thursday, Clear Friday and placed in the Silver Grand Prix today ๐Ÿ˜ Good boy Duc!

After that it was time for my 140 debut with Alf! 

I was NR 4 in the class meaning that I had to warm up and do some jumps before I walked the course! And that’s what I did, when the course was open Tina hold Alf, because Skin was making Ice Tea ready! After walking the course I trotted and galloped a few rounds and resumed jumping 


When you are one of the first to go like that it can easy be stressful to get to jump what you need before it is your turn to go in the ring! After walking the course eveybody wants the jumps, and want their rider to be able to jump what is best for them. Today it got a bit stressful but me, Alf, Tina and Skin (skin made it up to see my start while Ice Tea was waiting ready in the stables) we all manage to stay calm so both me and Alf were relaxed when we entered the ring! Also, Tina said before I went in, just relax, and I did! 

 

We were clear in the first face and had one down on the last fence in the second face!


Really happy with the round! We had a good rhythm and he jumped great!

Afterwords it was Ice Tea! He jumped good in the warm up and good in the ring, I am trying a new bit on him, and in the warm up he was fighting with the bit, but I could handle it. After the 3 combination I wanted to do 6 short stride to a oxer, but Ice tea was really afraid of the bit, so when I pulled the rains he panicked with his head 4 strides before the jump, and of course I don’t chase him over! The problem with Ice Tea is not to get him over jumps, he never stops, but to approve the ridbillity! I tried to make a circle and come again, but he would not take contact, and when I feel like that in the turn I retired. I’m not sad about the round, he jumped good and it is not his fault that the bit was no good, totally my fault!

This picture clearly shows ourcommunication problems in the ring  


The warm up for Ice Tea went quite okey, Tina helped me, because Skin was in the stable with Alf, taking care of him! Magne is the TOP photografer
