The CHIO is a big equestrian champignonchip which is held each year in Aachen and I treated myself with a visit to the starting ceremonia. It was gorgous how the partner country France introduced itself. I liked the pretty wild Carmarque horses best.
And of course it was nice to see my childhood heroes Asterix and Obelix in person.
But the artwork around the stadium I found a little bit disturbing. These wooden horse statues look sort of skinned meat.
