Well, what can I say? I have honestly never felt more proud to be a rider!
With a haul of medals including Team Silver for Eventing, Team Gold for Showjumping and Dressage and Individual Gold and Bronze for Dressage, I think we can all be justly proud of our riders' achievements!
From the excitement of the cross country, with a staggering backdrop of London, the thrill of a showjumping jump-off, to the beauty of the dressage in a stunning main stadium; all of the events have been a true spectacle to behold.
I have cheered myself hoarse (pardon the pun! lol) and cried as our riders achieved their dreams (Yes- whilst in work, I have blubbed like a baby lol - and not been ashamed to do so!)
Although I have never seen myself as a dressage diva, preferring the thrill of cross country, I must say that the Dressage has been a real highlight for me. Laura's Kur Test, with the Lion King music brought tears to my eyes and seeing the pure overwhelming joy of Charlotte as she achieved a record breaking Team and Individual Gold was very humbling. I do feel that special mention must go to the wonderful Carl Hester....what a mentor! Charlotte is one lucky lady!
The Olympics has left me feeling inspired and I honestly think that there has never been a better time to be a rider in the UK! (Proudly waving my Flag!)
CONGRATULATIONS Team (Equestrian) GB!!
