An unscripted glimpse at the Canadian Equestrian Team's athletes, supporters & fans before, during and after major games. #CanadaStrong

Where did the last 6 days go??

My apologies for the incredible long delay in updating this blog. Since I arrived Monday afternoon (Sept. 20) it’s literally been non-stop. The bed is so comfy in my room, but I hardly get to experience it.

There are many things to say, but I need to get up at 5am in order to be there for our Endurance team whose ride kickoff starts at 7:30am. Anyone who knows me will be suitably shocked when reading that I am gettin gup at 5am ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime, here are some pics including a pic from the Opening Ceremonies tonight which were fantastic! Our flagbearer, Para athlete Lauren Barwick, did Canada proud leading us into the big stadium to wild cheers from the many Canadian supporters who were there.

Many thanks to my Mom who went to Canadian Tire in Ottawa and scored a whole bunch of flags which the athletes and team members waved enthusiastically when entering the arena. Canada was the only country aside from USA whose entire team were decked out with Canadian flags.
