Here is artist Malin Baryard-Johnsson, a rider who really gets it. Her song is amazing. It expresses exactly how I feel about riding! Do you want to ride my horse?
This weekend she is jumping at the hotly contested Championship in Madrid for the Swedish Team. I am cheering for her and her Team who is battling it out to get on the Olympics startlist in London next year. She clearly loves riding. Often top tier athletes seem more about business and less than passionate.
It is the best riding tune ever, maybe just the “best sportstune known to mankind”, too. There are 12 countries competing for only 3 spots available at the 2012 Olympics. Eight teams have previously qualified during the past year. The U.S. is not yet qualified. Our last chance is at the Pan Am Games next month. Let’s hope that the pressure helps us team rise to the top.
Looking at Friday’s results Sweden qualified, so did Switzerland. The Swiss were the defending winning team of the European Jumping Championships which are held every two years. The Sunday class is for individual riders, not teams.
I Love Horse.
