      Friday 29 August

  • Today the choice is yours the coach will first be dropping off in Caen for those who want some retail therapy then it will continue to Haras du Pin for those who want to watch the second day of dressage. We have given you this option as it will not be possible to walk the cross country course and there is no full shopping village in Haras du Pin (eventing venue) so it does mean that for those of you who are not eventing dressage diehards there is an alternative. In the main stadium in Caen today is the freestyle Dressage to Music Championship, competition starts at 13.35 and runs through to 17.00 those requiring tickets may request these as an optional extra. The equestrian shopping village is just 2 km from the main stadium in Caen and has a shuttle bus service running between both venues all day so you can enjoy some retail therapy at any time throughout the day. The coach will collect you from Haras du Pin first and then Caen at the end of the day for the transfer back to your accommodation.

Competition starts at 10.30 am and finishes at 5pm at which point you will be collected for the transfer back to your accommodation.
