Australian team showjumper Amy Graham and stable manager Jacqui Ridley take a walk on Utah Beach near their Normandy farm Haras Du Ry the morning of Openening Ceremonies

I did not know this when I made arrangements to be here last year, but we are right smack dab in the middle of all of the D-Day Beaches, tours, and history. In fact I use The Normandy Tank Museum the landmark for giving directions to get here, just 5 minutes away.  At The Haras Du Ry, near Carentan, Australian show jumper Amy Graham and her family own a beautiful facility, complete with large and lovely “Gites” rented to visitors including the cast and crew of “The Band of Brothers” rented as well as a complete equestrian training facility in the heart of Normandy. We began our self guided tour, with a sunrise photo session of Amy and her stable manager, fellow Australian Jacqui Ridley, as they took their horses for an early walk on Utah Beach just a 15 minute drive from Haras Du Ry.

While I am getting daily reports of countless Facebook buddies who came in early to spectate the World Equestrian Games on whirlwind travels about France, my strategy is a bit different. I need about a week to really get onto Euro time. I’m a country girl, so life on this amazing facility at Haras Du Ry is just perfect for me.  Grocery shopping, antiquing with the owners as they continue to furnish their Gites, making dinners at “home” and enjoying getting to know the French Para Dressage Team and their entourage who have been training here has kept my days full. I final travelled to the Caen credential center still way ahead of the rush, and it’s a good thing I did. The line was still very long, but I made it to the front very quickly making friends in line like one does in Disney world and was helped by a lovely Canadian woman who lives in France.

As a member of the media you are often under a lot of pressure. Media have pictures to take, stories to file and deadlines to meet. And this will surely be the case that the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy, France. For media it is often about time constraints. Sometimes you have plenty of time to get your photos but other times, such as for awards presentations, you do not. Part of being able to succeed at these times depends on the press staff running the event.

Knowing who is doing what can help you achieve your goals. Often each area is handled by a different person. For instance one person might be in charge of TV, another overseeing interview requests and yet another dealing with the photographers.

Kelly Casey knew her talented young dressage star was in great hands when he hitched a ride on the DG Bar annual cross country caravan from California to Wayne, Illinois, for her first ever shot at the Young Horse Championships. “I am very grateful to DG Bar who generously offered to bring Emilion SA with them across the country. They do this annually, and I knew he would be in the best hands. Emilion SA traveled well and was rested and fit for me when I arrived.” He was more than ready for the 5-year-old preliminary test leading a field of 16 of America’s best and brightest with a score of 86.2.  The young sales prospect she had purchased with good friend Bob Tenwolde as an unbroken 3-year-old kept revealing new layers of talent. The KWPN gelding by Painted Black x Landwind II B, bred by M Sanders Peeters, in the Netherlands was started in the Netherlands by Tenwolde, and was imported in July 2013.
