Horses and Dreams 2016 Hagen a.T.W. - Building Day

It´s always exciting to go to fairs and Horse shows! This year we decided to participiate the Horses and Dreams in Germany - we had heard a lot of good things about this show.

Audience gets to see everything when it´s ready, but of course a lot of work is done days and months before the actual event.

Our journey started at 4 am on Tuesday morning when we took a bus from Lahti to Helsinki airport, from their to Düsseldorf by plane and then by car to Tecklenburg which is a little village near Hagen a.T.W. where Horses and Dreams take place.


Hagen a.T.W. is a small village, surrounded by mountains and the event area is surrounded by country houses. These cows were the first ones to greet us as we arrived on this misty morning to buil up our stand. 


Although the morning was quite misty and freezing, there was 
a promise of sun and a warm weather.

While waiting for Laura to guide us to our booth, we had a chance
to watch these beautiful horses and skillful riders training. No
competition yet, everybody just being friends!


Horses on their way


We were not alone... So many pagoda tents!


And there it was, our "office" for the next five days


We were located just next to the dressage arena and were able to 
see the warming up arena.


Dubarry was our next door neighbour. Greetings!

How it went on - coming out soon!
