17/04/2016 A day for horse lovers - National day, Carriage Driving, events, demonstrations and dressage at Vitrac-Saint Vincent

Maximum temperature 13C, minimum 6C.   32 km/h NE winds.  10mm rain measured.

We arrived at lunch time!  Of course very little going on as it is the most important time of the day in France!!  There was a cold wind blowing.

Horse and carriage.

There were some beautiful carriages there.

On the other side of the river.

Lunch time.
