The Olympians are in the arena!

Wednesday this week there were two Olympic dressage riders in the arena. My coach Belinda Trussell and Megan Lane. Megan was there to be the “eyes on the ground” to help Belinda. I was lucky enough to be able to watch Belinda ride two horses. The first was the 6 year old Diamanten Dave. The…
