For those that don't subscribe to phelpsport.com, there's a report on Georgina Bloomberg in the article about the Grand Prix.

"In other news, a complete report on Georgina Bloomberg, who had a server fall yesterday when her saddle unexpectedly came loose and slipped during the Gambler's Choice competition, will become more clear following an in-depth examination on Monday. Bloomberg was unconscious immediately following the fall, suffered a concussion and was also diagnosed with a fracture to her spine. Despite the injury, she is resting comfortably"

Thank you--the coverage was lovely! I read the coverage while watching the live stream and it was so great to get many different opinions on the same trip.

Question: I was tracking the standbys, but did not catch the numbers of all that were called back for the flat. Has anyone got that, preferably in order?

What did they ask people to do in the flat phase? Anything beyond w/t/c?

I was in the first group and we did walk trot canter in the first direction and then the same without stirrups going to the right

Not to hijack the thread, but any tips for picking your irons back up? I do a lot of work without stirrups with my trainer but for some reason I have a hard time getting my left foot back in. The right one is no problem though...

In any of the qualifying classes, regionals, etc. did you have to do any counter canter or lateral work in the flat classes?

You had a very nice trip in the first round!

Well done. :)
