A mixed day in the office today... Delighted to say that all Equestrian Team GBR horses flew through the trot up and a Big Thank you to Gary and the other grooms for getting absolutely soaked in the process! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘โ˜”๏ธ

Gary has been struggling with his throat over last few days and today he's lost his voice!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It couldnโ€™t have happened at a worse time as I am so reliant on him orientating me in the arena... Fortunately Melissa stepped in and we managed to do enough to have a quick training practice in the competition arena. Eddie was a little tense as there was quite an atmosphere around today, but hopefully now heโ€™s been in their once he will be better on Thursday. Unfortunately theres no more opportunity to ride in there, so we will just have to see how he comes out on Thursday and make the most of what he gives me on the day.

Then the day went from bad to worse and I got stung whilst eating my lunch this afternoon! This wouldnโ€™t have been a problem, except for the fact that I am seriously allergic to wasp stings!!! Well, Iโ€™m back at the hotel now after paying the local hospital a little visit and apart from feeling absolutely exhausted, hopefully I will be fine... ๐Ÿš‘๐Ÿ

The competition starts tomorrow for grades 1,2 and 3, so we will be their to support our team mates, then we compete on Thursday at 11.46 local time. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Do you have any lucky riding gear or competition superstitions?

โ€œNo, I keep trying to find one, but Gary keeps telling me that the only thing that is lucky is if I ride well… I don’t believe him, so I keep on searching!โ€
