Gothenburg Horse Show 2019 – LONGINES FEI World Cup Finals

Hi!

Well, here’s a belated post on how my week at the Gothenburg Horse Show 2019 – LONGINES FEI World Cup Finals and I was working as a volunteer and it was my 7th year working at this horse show.

Here I´ll share what I was up to and share some photos I snapped. Also I got to experience some top sport and got to meet some friends who were competing and catch up with them.

What was my role and what did I do?  

Well, this year me and a friend decided to work in a different group than we usually do, just to see something different. Until now I’ve been working at the ”Catering” group, who’s job is serving meals to grooms, riders, medical team, vets, farriers, LONGINES, FEI and volunteers.

All set!!

This time I worked in a group called ”Volunteer service” and our job was to sell Merchandise, hand out show programs and fill in in other groups when they needed more people or if someone’s sick. The first two days me and my friend were assigned to help out in the Stables and help unload lorries and prepare stalls. It was so much fun but a physical challenge with lifting and dragging carriages to the diifferent stalls.

Then we were back in the Merchandise booth and then FEI came and asked if some of us wanted to work for them and our job was to get people to snap photos at the # outside of the arena. The # stated: ”#FEIWorldCupFinals” and they´d one in Barcelona at the LONGINES FEI Nations Cup Final in September as well, also they’d a photowall or a backdrop in the foyer as well and we were gonna try and have people taking photos there as well.

Me and my friend said we´d like to help out and that we´d our own cameras and. could either text the pics or AirDrop them. FEI told us that we´d got some gifts as a ”thank you” for doing this, a cap, a shirt and that we could keep them. When working for the FEI we´d had to wear the clothes we got from them, when it was me and my friend working at the #, people came, got their photo taken and we´d a lotta people wanted to take a photo and pose at the FEI #. Also we managed to get the winning Mounted Games Team of Ireland to pose with the Cup and they were so happy and nice! We bumped into the EuroHorse Exhibition as well and they shouted ”Hello” so loud and we gave them a wave and walked by, a little awkward but cool.

The winning Mounted Games Team of Ireland stopped by the # to pose with their Cup!! So cool!!

Sumamry of the week…

Overall it was a great week, except for that our Boss was not very nice to us. She picked on us and whatever we did it seemed like it wasn’t in the right way. So next year we’ll switch to another position. We´re not gonna put up with that kind of bossiness and rudeness.

BUT I got some shopping done too, at the EuroHorse 2019 and since I crashed during a lesson a few weeks before this took place I´d to get me a new helmet since I landed on my head. I´ll do a new post on what I got, also I did a HAUL video that´s up on my YouTube channel.

Until then, ride safe and have a GREAT week!!
