Motorbikes + Horses = Adrenaline + Fun

On Sunday June 4th, a very special horseshow took place at my club, Los Sargentos. The ring was filled with a mixture of jumps for horses and for motorcycles, and every rider was teamed up with a biker. First the rider went into the ring and did the course as fast as possible before jumping off the horse and running to where the biker teammate was standing to give him a high five so he could run to his motorbike and do his course as fast as possible. It was so much fun, everyone was cheering for everyone else! I did my best round ever with Bolero but unfortunately my biker was the only one to fall during his course and we were therefore eliminated. No worries though, next year will be a different story! Rider: Chicho (director of the club), horse: Shakira

Chicho's partner for the competition, who happens to have been the best motorbike rider (think he came 1st, 3rd, 5th and 6th!)
