Or, more specifically, that's when Mandiba was pushed beyond reason to go to the 2008 Olympics. The horse simply wasn't ready and had no business being there.
I thought that's what mareslave...
Glenbaer has told me -- privately, however -- that there was, in fact, coffee available.
Now I feel better.
Yes it can. It does happen that way, from what I've been told.
This isn't just limited to eventing or equestrian disciplines but includes racing as well. There are a lot of laypeople out there...

Correct, although (1) that info was not in the initial report that I read and (2) we could quibble about what 'on course' means in this case:
No, I'm not.
I was stating my observations,...
Eight of the top ten horses at from the Olympics were at Badminton. (The exceptions were Wega and Mr Medicott.) Five of those horses finished in the top 10 at Badminton.
Somewhere, they're doing...
That's a cute mare. Very eye-catching. Have fun with her. :)
No coffee? No wonder half the field was eliminated.
I'm surprised they even made it to the start box.
Let me get this straight.
We're talking about a horse that has a spotty record at 3*, that was E'd at its only attempt at a 4*, which was the 'soft' 4* of Rolex. And we're talking about a rider...
This was on EN; link to DS's website is here.
Cause of death is said to be an aortic aneurysm.
Two weeks ago, I saw this horse come through Huntsman's Close on his aborted run at Badminton. ...
Why would you assume this, especially after seeing years of 'management' of Mandiba?
What can any of the above 'know' that would make this okay?
This is a mare that was E'd in her only attempt at CCI**** at Rolex 2012. She also has letter results for the Fork CIC*** 2012 and also for Plantation the previous year. That was with KOC.
I heard that the courses were very good but that the riding, in too many cases, was not up to the standard.
Then can you please offer some examples of circumstances in which this would be considered good horsemanship?
Count me in the camp who didn't -- couldn't -- believe the mare was actually running. But there she is on the scoreboard.
Can anyone explain the point of this? What on earth is so urgent to...
Enough already, deltawave. If the Safestyles are too déclassé and low-rent for you, perhaps you'd like the Freejump Soft'Up Pro Stirrups, which come in a variety of colors for $375. Matching...
For safety irons, I'd like these: Safestyle Offset Eye Stirrup Irons.
I also have a pair of double-sided safety irons (the 's' sided ones, but with both sides at an s-curve, which I got in...
Disagree completely -- this one is so far from reality, it had to have come from men.
I have a horse with four white feet. One hoof has a big crack/split in it from the coronary band to the sole. It was like this when I got him.
This horse has always been sound. Competed to...
It does look that way from the photos (thanks for that).
I was going off Eventing Nation's description of the fall, which said the horse landed on him at the landing between #21A and #21B.
You could also say that Oliver's horse is at fault for not hitting the rail at the right angle and with the right force to cause the pin to release.
The frangible pin is not a panacea. It can...
No, not weird.
The frangible pin is designed to break only when the rail/log is hit with a threshold force at a certain range of angles.
Specifically, the pin was designed...
There's no reason to cling to tradition when it's only about fashion.
Allison looked lovely in her helmet. Like an athlete.
deltawave, no need to apologize.
I think Allison's act of courage (sanity, actually) caught us all by surprise. In a good way. :)
