Did you know that European and European-based eventers head south to get in early-season competitions too? C.H. Barroca d’Alva in Portugal is a favorite early FEI event that riders from many different nations use to get their feet wet for the season. One only needs to take a peek at the 2018 results to get a feel for the diversity of competitors.
The riders and their horses may have gotten their feet a little too wet this year, however, as several of the competition days saw particularly windy and rainy weather.
But the show went on! Take a look at the video below courtesy of EquusPix Photography for a look around the C.H. Barrocca grounds and scenes from the competition:
Had a fabulous time at Barroca – even if the weather was not the best at times! C.H. Barroca d'Alva
