Equine enthusiasts from all over the world gathered in celebration of the FEI Nations Cup — the only Canadian stop for the international competition featuring Canada, the United States, Mexico and Ireland.
This prestigious team-jumping competition had nations vying for a chance to compete at the World Championships in Barcelona next September.
While Team Mexico secured the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup, Team Canada filled the runner-up spot. Ireland placed third. Go Canada!
I don’t know much at all about the equestrian world, but that certainly didn’t take away from the whole experience.
It was a lot of fun to walk the grounds and check out everything that was going on, including the live music, food trucks, happy families picnicking in the park, pony rides, champagne and more. Check out my day at Thunderbird Show Park in photos.
Watching team Mexico make an impressive jump.
It was a sold-out show! Nice to see lots of families with little ones out.
It was a sizzling hot day, but there were plenty of options for refreshments.
Thank you Thunderbird Show Park for throwing another fabulous event here in ‘the Valley.’
If you haven’t visited this little slice of country paradise yet, make sure to put it on your summer bucket list for 2016!
What do you think of my hat?
