Thank you for providing this site, Equibrit. Did you find it on British Dressage?

Er no. I have a program that spoofs a euro IP address that makes it easier to search things out.

I thought the Kur was suppose to be this morning at 7...but all I'm getting is a screen with funky music playing...I noticed something in another language with dresseur kur 15.30...but wouldn't that be their time? I was really looking forward to watching Hester's freestyle.

And got in a little dig at Rath after his ride, I noticed - "the applause is for Totilas" ;-)

Beautiful ride by Adelinde - very well deserved Gold :) :) :)

Interesting discussion by the FEI commentators about the Spanish rider's test - essentially, they disagreed with the judges. ;) There was a wide difference in his scores amongst the judges, and the technical scores (71-80%) were significantly lower than the artistic scores ( 84-88).

One of their comments was to say that that horse performed to the absolute best of his ability - that by nature, and by conformation, he doesn't have the gaits that a big warmblood does, and isn't that the goal of Dressage, according to the FEI Rules? So, how could they mark him down as low as they did was their question.

I did not see the whole test, so I can't comment about his ride, but I think it is an interesting question and maybe should be addressed. In another thread? ;)

Some on Olympics is right!!! :)

I wouldn't say that his score of 80.982 and a 6th place finish was low. Heck, he placed over Werth.

I got to see some of the rides live (thanks, Equibrit for that link!). Does anyone know where you can watch them archived?

I missed Charlotte/Valegro's kur, and only say a bit of Carl's. Adelinde's was great, so was Laura B's.
