Where

CEI3* 160km in Lormar at the Fairview Farm in the Middelburg district, South Africa. October 2017.

The Story

I was riding Esmak Jadyn in my first race in South Africa.
This picture was taken in the third loop (24 km) at a location where we had to dismount the horse because of a big mountain where we had to walk next to horse. It was really difficult both for the riders and the horses. We were walking on big rocks going uphill. It is important fit because it became hard to breathe. We walked 30 minutes uphill and I was finally thinking that when we were on the top, downhill would be easier. When I was trotting, I saw the downhill and it looked really hard. There were only marks on the rocks. It was hard to imagine where to put my legs and even more difficult to think about finding the best path for Jadyn. It was a long and tough way, but we were the best team and I can only say thank you Esmak Jadyn for the beautiful race that I enjoyed so much. I finished in seventh position.
