„Life is good“ comes immediately to my mind on that Tuesday morning at the end of August 2016. Standing in the courtyard of a typical Münsterland barn, the sun slowly developing its strength, the sky spotless and blue, I could not think of anything better at that moment than being exactly here. My camera and I waiting for some hours of action under pretty ideal conditions, also from an equestrian point of view, for a mini dressage immersion tour around Warendorf.

It’s been a dynamic year for British Dressage, not least with the achievements of Piaffe’s flagship client, Charlotte Dujardin, who gained the individual gold in Rio on the now retired Valegro. Much is written about the support of trainers, grooms and on the ground teams but there is still intrigue within the equestrian world about those who are building the brands of riders, gaining them headlines, sourcing appearances and much needed endorsements to assist in building their careers.
