A behind the scenes glimpse at what it takes to send and support the Canadian Equestrian Team on the road to a major games.

Last night Tina and I were invited to a celebration dinner with the dressage gang. I don’t think the restaurant believed me when I said I needed to make a reservation for 25 people!

It was a great evening with all of the athletes, grooms, support team members, owners, friends and family. It definitely sowed that it takes a village!

There were some great speeches made that night which really made me feel so fortunate to be a small part in this wonderful experience. I was particularly touched by the speeches given by chef d’equipe Gina Smith and Technical Advisor Markus Gribbe……they both summed it up perfectly about what an incredible, professional, polished, composed and fun dressage team we have here in Guadalajara.

I’m looking forward to the next medal celebration dinner following the Freestyle!
GO CANADA!!!!!
