Easter jumping

I suppose that the first thing that comes to mind is a lot of Easter bunnies hopping around. But this weekend the Club Hípico del Sur in Buzanada (Arona) in Tenerife held its' annual Easter showjumping event. It attracted over 100 participants, which is a success whichever way you look at it.

Although I am more interested in the monochrome discipline (black and white of dressage!), I do enjoy watching the horses flying around the arena and showing their strength and prowess as they negotiate the different obstacles. The weather held out and the competition was thoroughly enjoyed by participants and public alike.

There were many thrills over the three days but no serious spills! There is nothing more inspiring than a healthy, well turned out horse - and there were plenty to see.

Hasta pronto!
