Excited as before the first cutting show, we have been finally on the road again with the horses. For the first show after two years not showing, the travl was not too far. However, the place in Meckesheim was under water, so we could only make one decision for ourselves and our horses: to scratch the start! On this ground a reasonable cutting would not have been possible in our eyes. Serious injuries for the horses, cattle and even the riders could not be excluded under these conditions. Our comrades from the Netherlands have also decided not to start. This is a decision that deserves great respect, they travelled hours to get there!
