Paralympics Greenwich - Dressage Piccy's

Good morning everyone, hope you're all having a good weekend so far...can you believe it's September already and still we haven't had a proper summer. It felt quite chilly yesterday despite the sun shining!

We had an amazing time at the Paralympic Dressage on Friday and as promised I've uploaded a few photos to share with you. It was very humbling to see how the riders have overcome and dealt with the problems life has thrown at them and so inspirational too!

This is Sophie all dressed up with Union Flag everything...Leggings, T-Shirt, Cardigan and Deely Boppers!

Sophie with two of our fab members from the armed forces who are keeping our games safe

This is the view across London from the stands at Greenwich can just pick out the top of the Olympic Park in the distance and also the Orbit Tower

Here is Sophie Wells...ParalympicGB rider on Pinocchio. She rode an amazing test with the highest score of the morning session, putting ParalympicsGB in pole position for the team Gold.

This is a view across the arena...hubby took this picture from the very top of the seating area and you can just see James & sophie walking down the steps

Sophie with one of the Games Makers...these guys are absolutely amazing, always smiling and ready to help answer any questions or offer advice.
