Travels with horses can often be exciting and take us to some awe-inspiring destinations, but all too often the process getting to the fantastic destination is less than scenic. I think we’ve all pulled into one too many highway rest stops with questionable-looking grass (if any at all), an out of order restroom, and a vending machine with expired Cheetos for our own likings.
English-based Italian rider Vittoria Panizzon was thoughtful and lucky enough to avoid at least one derelict rest stop on her way to the FEI Nations Cup at Arville, Belgium last week. When looking for a spot to let DHI Jackpot out of the trailer to stretch his legs, she discovered Dover Beach right by the customs office on her route. Now that’s not too shabby of a pit stop at all!
Burghley starts NEXT WEEK! Keep it locked onto EN – we have some awesome content headed your way.
Eventing is dishing up an equally exciting week in the US, with the American Eventing Championships happening in Lexington, Kentucky. EN is beavering away on both sides of the Pond to bring you all you need to know from the AEC too – so go nowhere, and go eventing!
