World Equestrian Games
We are live from the Press Office at WEG in Rome. Trenna, Nancy and Heather flew in fine and found me in the press room. Thank goodness, I met Ken Acebal's parents at the Paris airport and they guided me from the airport to the train to a cab to the hotel.
Met Liz Hopps and Neil and Elymas -- they are fine. Uwe Sauer, the coach, agreed that Elymas has a lovely piaffe --what a joy. He is fit and happy as is Liz. Neil brought Elymas favorite horse treats - Stud Muffins from Canada.
All horses from the US and Canada passed the vet jog -- part yesterday and part today.
Then I met Klaus Balkenhol and will go to the German warmup this afternoon. The draw for starting position is at 2:30. Will post ASAP.
Ran into Jessica Ransehausen, US, Chef d'equippe and Shelly Francis. The US team is happily settled in after a two day over land haul from Donaueschingen.
Will bring emails to deliver tomorrow.
Everything is fine, Rome is ancient, traffic is interesting. The people are friendly, the atmosphere is friendly.
Ky, Heather and Trenna, Live from Rome
