On the first day of dressage at #RK3DE2015, Michael Jung surprised no one with his immaculate performance, our rookies did us proud and the weather proved once again that when we say “dress in layers” at the KHP, we mean it.
We have tons of incredible tests to look forward to on Friday, but let’s look back on the emotions of today and celebrate the successes of the horse and rider combinations that have worked so hard to get here.
#RK3DE: Website, Entries, Schedule, Ride Times, Live Scores, How to Watch Live, EN’s Coverage, Ultimate Guide to Rolex, Twitter, Instagram
These are the moments we live for…
That moment when you pull out the best test of your life at the biggest show of the year. Thank you for that irreplaceable feeling Al #pinchme #goAlgo #chasingthedream A photo posted by Lainey Ashker (@laineyea) on
