And I will be a week from Tuesday for the driving portion, but after hearing and seeing photos from the Opening Ceremonies, it makes me wish I was already there. I watched NBC’s coverage today from noon to 1:30. It was all reining, which makes sense since except for Endurance, it was the only competition going on. If driving was the first to go, I wonder if we would have seen an hour and a half of driving!
Tucker Johnson carried the American flag during the parade of nations, sharing the honor with Karen O’Connor. Carriages were also featured in the opening ceremonies bringing dignitaries into the arena, driven by Tom Burgess, Marilyn MacFarlane, Misdee Wrigley Miller and Todd Draheim whose passenger will be FEI President Princess Haya.
