Our American colleague Mary Phelps of Dressagedaily.com had a fun day with FEI riders Guenter Seidel and David Blake on the beach. Phelps wrote that "this has got to have been one of the best photo shoots I have done in awhile!"
Phelps added that "after a fabulous week in southern California covering the Dressage Affaire CDI and the Para Dressage Olympic Qualifiers Guenter Seidel and David Blake invited me to join them Monday morning for coffee at “The Pipes Café” and then off to the beach to catch some waves. This is all part of their serious dressage training for the California based high performance dressage trainers who both have a successful show. The waves weren't that big while I was there so we'll try again this afternoon but I couldn't wait to show you these pics."
