We Will be Back

We work. We sweat. We cry. We, fail, one time, another time and still try. We criticise, yet never doubt ourselves, we push forward. We get up early, we ignore our sore legs, we put on a neat shirt and show. We fight against all odds. And we win. We are European Champions, Futurity Champions, National Champions and sometimes the queens and kings of hearts. We are equestrians. We know how to defeat a crisis, even Corona. We know how to push through. We will be back. 🤎

This is not the most professional video as it features many clips that were taken with a phone. But those are your clips and we wanted to share them. Did you spot yourself or your friends?
Those clips that do look professional, however, were taken by Horsepaparazzi. Thank you very much! 🤎

Wir arbeiten hart. Wir schwitzen. Wir weinen. Wir machen Fehler, einmal, zweimal und probieren es doch immer wieder. Wir hinterfragen, aber zweifeln nie. Wir stehen in aller Herrgottsfrühe auf, ignorieren den Muskelkater und ziehen unser Showoutfit an, reiten los und gewinnen. Wir sind Europameister, Futurity Champions, Deutsche Meister und manchmal Sieger der Herzen. Wir als Reiter wissen, wie man mit Krisen umgeht, wie man aus ihnen gestärkt hervorgeht, auch Corona kann uns nichts anhaben. Wir sehen uns wieder. 🤎

Das ist nicht das professionellste Video, da auch viele Handyclips drin sind – aber das sind eure Momente und die wollen wir ja auch zeigen. Habt ihr euch schon entdeckt?
Alles, was aber sehr professionell aussieht, wurde von Horsepaparazzi aufgenommen – vielen Dank, dass wir diese schönen Momente nutzen dürfen!
