You know you are in Vierzon when…
Champagne corks pop in the VIP tent at “A” and horses don’t seem to mind.
You can photograph a class from the VIP tent with a glass of champagne in your hand.
You sit down at your table at the competitors’ party, in the catering tent, and your place is set with three forks and four glasses (champagne, white, red, water), and your starter course is a lovely pate.
Dogs come in for dinner in the food tent, and all restaurants, as part of the family.
There are nearly as many children at ringside as adults.
Children run, jump, play and roll down hillsides beside the warm up rings and not a single DQ gives them a dirty look or calls their parents bad names.
Everyone stays for prize giving.
An ensemble of hunting horns calls the competitors in for the Freestyle awards.
People wave huge flags beside the ring during the honor round and no one wrestles them to the ground.
We are off to Pompadour today!
