World Equestrian Games

Having always been a keen spectator of 3 day eventing, I bought tickets very early on this year for the WEG in Normandy. Hotel also booked early so all set.
This international event has been 4 years in the planning, so it was such a disappointment to find massive traffic jams for the cross country day at the Haras du Pin, we spent 4 hours in the car on a 50 minute journey so we arrived 2 hours after the start and missed riders such as William Fox- Pitt and Zara Phillips. They had also not provided enough food stations and those that were there ran out of food during the afternoon.
The course and competitors however were fantastic and managed to raise our spirits.
Sunday showjumping in Caen was however much better, no traffic problems, free parking and buses, and a brilliant afternoon watching these amazing sportsmen and women and their fantastic horses.
