So it is that we are once again on our way to the President's Cup. Jeremy and Sir Smith left on Jan 28th. I drove them and the other USA horse BA Belshazaar (SP?) aka Zar as well.
We left at 1 am Thursday morning to get to LAX by 8 am. Zar had been with us for a couple of days so he made the trip down with us as his owners, Jeremy Olson and Ellen Rapp, are currently living in Qatar training endurance horses.
The horses both traveled well and made it, with a very tired Jeremy, to Amsterdam. The horses stayed at the horse hotel on the out skirts of Amsterdam. They had a 3 day wait there before they would ship to another airport some where in the NL to get on to a private charter with the other foreign horses to continue on to the UAE. It was snowing in Amsterdam so Jeremy could only ride them in the indoor arena. Poor Jeremy was all alone there with out any other US rider for company.
