This morning the L'Illa Shopping Centre in Barcelona received a very special visitor. It is "Iris", the fibreglass horse that stars in the fifth edition of the #bcnalgalop action of the Barcelona Equestrian Challenge (BECH) with the support of the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona Foundation. This friendly horse, decorated and painted by the Equestrian School of the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona riders, will be touring some of the most emblematic places in Barcelona this summer, while awaiting in October the arrival of the CSIO Barcelona, the most important show jumping competition of the year.
"Iris" aims to bring the world of horses to the youngest children, emphasising the love of nature, the values of sport and respect for people. On this occasion, the children reflect, through their design, particularly complicated moments and situations experienced between 2020 and 2021 with the outbreak of the pandemic. Confinement, leisure time, family life, applause in recognition of the work of the health workers, and love.
"Iris" is looking forward to doing many things this summer. After shopping at the L'Illa Shopping Centre, it will spend a few days having fun at the Tibidabo Amusement Park, going on the most popular rides such as the Plane, the Watchtower or riding the Carroussel with other friends. It will also have time to visit the past and meet it’s friend "Olímpic" #bcnalgalop2017, at the Olympic Museum, and make new friends at the imaginCafé to invite them to the CSIO Barcelona, where they will finish their adventures from the 1st to the 3rd of October.
