After a five week whirlwind tour of France, Holland and Germany covering the equestrian Olympic selection trials the Phelps/Hathaway Team heads for home from the Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, our favorite central point for our euro-travel.
Many thanks to all of those who were so gracious along the way; the Appels family in Mol, Belgium for all their warm hospitality, Astrid Appels, our Euro-partner on the web, the organizers of Arnhem, Bad Honnef, and Aachen whose appreciation of our presence and coverage inspires us to share our images of their events with our readers.
A special thanks to the competitors who greet us and smile, and to all the wonderful horses who provide us with the images we continue to share. And, at our home base in Florida, thanks to Tracy and Penny for keeping the office running smoothly.
The images and stories will keep coming, so tune in daily as we begin to catalogue and archive many of the finest horse and rider combinations in Europe.
