Wet, wonderful Windsor

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Royal Windsor Horse Show and the International Endurance such a brilliant success last week. Despite the cancellation of ‘Windsor Wednesday’ due half a month's rain falling in just 12 hours and the car parks being flooded, our fantastic teams helped make make the rest of the event a triumph. The weather made our work a bit more challenging as you can see.   _89660843_royalwindsor2       _89660839_royalwindsorhoreshow Windsor wet   Nonetheless, the resilient British public turned out in force for the remaining days and ticket sales were up by 20% day on day compared to previous years. Some of our team were lucky enough to get up close and personal to the action, including seeing the Queen drive past - it really is her in the Range Rover, we promise! It is a great event to be part of and we look forward to being back there again which will be our third year.   Queen IMG_0513 IMG_0519 97559305_Royal-windsor-large_trans++J-R4HcdxphMVZS7j4sG1f1hUExebk5Zs-eM9tQzjOMA IMG_0510 IMG_0412IMG_0399
