I'd love to go on different days some time and see M&Ms etc but it's a bit too far. Coach trips always seem to be on saturday so that most people can manage it. We have gone on different days before on the train but it means the whole day and late back and it's hard to find someone to have ds. He likes horses and we take him to Hickstead with us but the noise and crowds of Olympia would be just too much for him. I remember pre-dcs seeing the bareback puissance which was very exciting!
I don't think they are allowed to do it now, elf and safety and all that. I'm talking quite a few years ago as I was with my mum and dad! We had seats over the collecting ring so the riders were jumping towards us and we couldn't even see them until they appeared over the wall!
It is definitely festive fun molliemoi especially at the end when they get all schmalzy with father Christmas coming in on a sleigh and loads of horses and riders also come in and then everyone sings 'The First Noel'
<sigh> its lovely
That video is amazing. They look so natural without a saddle.
