A very full programme started with the pace test, before moving to the oval track for the usual classes. Tölt: T3 T6, T7, four gait: V2 and V5, five gait F2, and ‘trail’, a course with 8 obstacles to manoeuvre. Most riders will have been competing 2-3 times today. With 78 participants, that makes for a long day, full of emotions: elation and disappointment, anticipation and stress; feeling on top of the world, feeling worried – and often enough feeling everything at the same time. Luckily, we are so far north, that we do not need to worry about oncoming darkness. If you want to follow the action, follow the link.
