If she spoke to those pesky photographers during her test yesterday would she be disqualified?

Just wondering...

At worst she would have gotten a -2 point deduction for use of voice. We heard her quite clearly in the "photo pits", but I don't know if any of the judges could hear her.

It was heard by ALL of US in the section over V.

Just wondering how that worked...

what did she say?
"not now, you retards!" ??

I would like to know too.

I'm sorry, but blaming the photographers for her horse spooking is just poor sportsmanship. The photographers are at one side of the arena in a pit and quite frankly I couldn't see them.

I didn't see Rafalca's rider get pissy at the judges when his horse didn't want to go near them. It's horse showing and things do happen. Just suck it up and ride on.

I couldn't hear what she said but she gave them the laser death stare twice. We all looked at each other like 'what was that?!'

She just says what y'all would say if you had the *****.

So she's a wee bit blunt. :lol:

Here is an short interview with Isabell

She did say something. I thought maybe I was imagining things...

Nice interview.

Don't ask me why, but it was obvious that Isabell was pissed off already when she rode into the ring at the beginning of her test. I trully believe that she should take a nice and refreshing holiday. Far away from the dressage circus.

At the Raleigh CDI a couple of years ago, Leslie Morse yelled at a guy on the concourse while she was doing her freestyle. Someone told me he was emptying a trash can. I didn't see what she was responding to, but I did see the fit she threw.

And Ulla Salzgeber could get VERY testy when showing Rusty. Talk about a death stare!!

So Isabell is not alone. I hate that that happened as she's usually a funny, generous soul.

Oh please spare me, it's only the way 99% OF lower level dressage riders act from the moment they step on the show grounds. I've heard swear words in the warmup my momma never even taught me.

Don't act so shocked.:lol:
