Diary of Asmar equestrian-sponsored rider, Sophie Wells, from the Frankfurt 2011 Young Riders World Cup Final in Germany – 2nd post

Merry Xmas to our followers!

Asmar equestrian-sponsored rider, Sophie Wells, recently attended the Frankfurt 2011 Young Riders World Cup Final in Germany, which was held from 16 – 18 December 2011. We are serialising her diary entries over the next week:

En route to Germany and we had stopped off in Reims in France for an overnight stop; I was feeling proud of myself that I had driven the lorry for an hour in France.

Everybody was quite tired by then; I took Noki for a little wander around the yard’s indoor school while my trainer Angela Weiss and my transporter Mark got the stable ready. Noki didn’t seem phased at all by the journey, and looked great getting off the lorry.

The next day was an early start again after a few hours sleep to crack on and head for Germany. We passed the German/French boarder and Mark said it was tradition to stop for ice cream there, so at 7am we were having ice cream….

We arrived in Frankfurt in really good time, it just took us an hour to find the right entrance to get into the complex; it was very confusing!! Eventually we got there at lunch time, and found the stabling was in a massive multi story car park. We were one of the first to arrive, and could choose any stable we wanted, this obviously took us ages to decide! Quiet enough to sleep, airy but not cold, good light, not too far from the wash box and warming up, and enough space to get him in and out….we found the perfect one and mark reversed the lorry into the car park to unload!
