Boekelo has had just about every thing thrown at it in the last 24 hours, torrential rain, gale force winds and now its a muddy mess!  Its always known for its laid back attitude but this year its quite the art to navigate through the muddy lanes and tracks, avoid the bikes, not slip into a massive ditch and the trot up was positively dangerous with horses stacked up in a narrow lane way and a new road way being built just 50 yards above with tipper trucks thundering up and down it!

Luckily Cekatinka is a pretty laid back sort herself so she just dealt with it in her usual matter of fact way.  The team went for some photos afterwards which as you can see, Tim clearly enjoyed doing even if he does look a bit like a B movie actor.

Dressage for Tim and Tinka on Friday afternoon as they run No.4 for the team… lest hope it stops raining by then!
