Is that always how Poggio goes---he looks like a train!:eek:

(LOOKS like an amazing horse but what a ride!!!!)

THANK GOD horse and rider are ok. For a split second I thought it was going to be worse.

bosox - remember a lot of people can't see the live stream and may want to wait until they can see it elsewhere; may want to notify of spoilers so people can pass it by if they don't want to know.

Snoopy---since I didn't see the course walk I could not tell if the trouble through the combo was related to the fall...

She seemed to be riding kind of oddly, legs way off the horse, feet braced in front of her, little base of support, so I was wondering, then there she went.:confused:

Ahhh, payback is sweet.
So glad Poggio II is okay.

Okay, dumb a$$ question - what is the white stuff on the horses' legs?

That is what I thought. It looked like most riders took a tug at the bottom of the hill, in the compression, to get the horse back. It looked liked she just sailed thinking the hill would do the work. Obviously, not. It almost was the same ride she did down the hill in the combination. Is that the way Poggio goes regularly?

WOW. If that's true, that's exactly what was one of the big discussions after Rolex and certainly after AT's problem: riders going like bats out of hell and "just sailing" through.

Grease, so they may slide thru better, if they hang a leg.

What a disgusting thing to say. Regardless of what you think of AT or the Rolex incident, wishing a fall on someone is really beyond the pale.

I missed it... did Poggio fall too, or just Amy?
