Just watching live scores...Charlotte just scored a freaking 86%!!! Holy moly!
Watching live scores, and as someone mentioned above (or on the dressage forum), there are pretty significant differences in judge's scores. For Steffen in the special, one judge had him 14th (I...
Lowest she can finish in the Special is EIGHTH!!! Wow! Watching live scores like a hawk!
Laura and Steffen will now be top 10! Well done!
I almost chuckled at her centerline...I could totally hear the conversation:
Valegro: Halt now?
Charlotte: No, forward.
Valegro: OK! *zoom*
Charlotte: Not that forward...passage.
Oh darn it! Numbers didn't move in the direction we wanted!
Jingles for Parker and for you, KR. Hang in there...
I was just about to post the exact same article! So, now to find out if the "four rule" was enacted.
I stand corrected...top three it is! Trying to find where I read four...off to scour my browser history! :D
Yay, USA! I was a bit worried Sweden may leap frog us!
I think top 30 go on to GP Special...but that still includes three US riders!
And I did read that 4th means qualified for the Olympics.
Glad I'm not the only one to get a bit teary at it! I watched Laura's ride on youtube and the first trot half pass got me all verklempt!
I hope Charlotte's test gets posted to YouTube soon (like Laura's did). I'd love to see it!
Well...had hoped Steffen's ride would have been a bit better. Now with Charlotte and Tinne left...US could possibly end up 5th.
Ours left two weeks ago after three batches of babies. There were five nests total, so at any given time we had 15-20 babies peeping and cheeping and learning to fly. I LOVE watching the adults swoop...
So very sorry for the sudden loss. How wonderful that your husband could be there with her in her final moments, comforting her and letting her go.
Hugs and jingles for all of you...godspeed,...
Read about Parker last week, then the weekend craziness got in the way, so I'm just getting updated.
Things certainly sound good from the outside looking in. Jingles and prayers that the most...
Thinking about you and your family, today. Prayers for peace, for love, for hope...hugs to you!
I wash my own face with a combo of olive oil and castor oil, and I don't have a single waxy, scurfy spot! :D
Lovely! She certainly looked like she was having fun, even if the fences are smaller than what she's used to...and your riding was great!
I'm not even primordial ooze if that riding is hapless...
Thinking about you this afternoon, Epona! Focus on your music and books, and as mentioned before, try to sleep on the plane, even if it's medically induced! I'm a very nervous flier, and so I will...
No words of wisdom, really, but BIG HUGS to you.
The slow runs worked well...we know that much. On your feet all day doing everything under the sun to set up for a party...not so much. Keep using...
My pup has the same Lamb Chop! She can squeak that squeaker so fast and loud that you ALWAYS know which toy she has in her mouth!
I remember him! I grew up in Bristol and he would often be walking along Lee Highway with his gorgeous dogs...he was often barefooted as well!
I always laugh to myself at the rule's wording..."drop loosely." I picture some floppy-armed flailing going on. :D
OP, keep on keeping on - you're doing it right.
