    Sinead withdrew Tate pre-event. Here's the article, although I don't read between those lines very well.

    Where is Sinead based now, U.S. or England? Where is Tate based?

    I believe the online schedule has the new start times, because it starts at 9:45, has the 3 minute intervals and the last start time is 1:25. Noticed they have 5 minutes for the first two intervals....

    If you were referring to my post, you misread it. I was comparing the position of the trainer, not the OP. Tongue-in-cheek. The point being that the trainer works for the OP and not the other way...

    Rocana is only second to Sam. That was my meaning. :)

    He rode and scored brilliantly on Rocana ... and he still has Sam to come. Although his remarks indicated he thinks Sam is more difficult in...

    That horse left the barn the minute you went to the internet.

    Trainer doesn't even have to look for it herself. Sooner or later a "friend" will print it out and hand it to her.

    No argument with that. :)

    Good point. My remarks was a throwaway for a way to ride while it is raining. Sorry for the derail.

    The topic was actually about competing in the rain, and how many Americans are inclined to WD if...

    That was tried.

    I know we were all pulling for her to fudge right on through, so she could ride XC/SJ and have her chance to complete. Seen it done before.

    But she couldn't even keep the horse...

    Well I suppose we can be grateful she doesn't up & say "we suck". :lol:

    We don't suck, exactly, "we" (whoever that is on this side of the water) just aren't up to the Jung standard.

    I know that was about half the test Jessica Phoenix wanted. Horse looks like she can do much better. Wind and cold and all that. Karen was indeed very kind with her remarks.

    Interesting. Not all that long ago that horses would have come down from PA and northern midwestern states for Rolex. The winter flight to Florida is quite a trend.
