Whilst Adelaide has not exactly put on the best of conditions for the start of this mornings CIC 3 star dressage, with drizzle and a chill in the air, the crowds have filled the Grandstand in Victoria Park. The riders and horses are still prepared magnificently, and I'm sure the appreciative applause at the end of each test is keeping the spectators warm.
The CCI 4 Star is scheduled for after lunch. With the event this year being a qualifier for the upcoming 2018 World Equestrian Games, this should be an exciting weekend of competition.
