Olivia D’Errico Accepts Trophy for Team Canada Juniors at Bromont

I arrived almost too late to see them…Olivia and her nine-year-old mare, She’s the One.  The CEC final was scheduled for 2pm, so Dave and I took our time driving to Bromont and stopped for brunch, although we were careful to avoid the Champlain Bridge; we took the Mercier and Hwy 138 instead.  Good thing…because not 40 minutes after we’d arrived and my cousin, Rico, found us, his lithe, lovely, determined daughter Olivia was up next.  I don’t think it was quite 1pm yet.  Whew!  They did a beautiful job; clearly, She’s the One, a Dutch Warmblood, understands her job:  she gives nice air-time and brings all four hooves under just as she should, nicely symmetrical.

I found out quite by chance about a month ago (through Evelyne Villers’ excellent Chronique in Premiere Edition) that my own cousin’s daughter, Olivia D’Errico, has qualified for the Quebec Equestrian Games which will be held at Bromont on the 16th to 18th of September.  Bravo, Olivia.  I’ll see you at Bromont!  (Meanwhile, I asked Rico, my cousin and her proud Dad, to let me use some photos on this blog site…let me know, cuz!)…and so he did. Unfortunately, the great jump pic that I wanted was “security-enhanced” so I couldn’t publish it here. But I have found another! Brava, Olivia and “She’s the One”, your lovely mare! I’ll see you at Bromont!
