    Well, hell. If they are trying to avoid a scandal-free WEG endurance competition, they have an easy job. It seems like the majority of UAE riders are also good at avoiding scandal-free rides. :D

  2. What do you think of this horse as an event prospect?

    I bought him as a short 2 year old as a jumper prospect -- and I am thrilled that he seems to give all the right responses to indicate his ability to do that discipline.

    But recently I have gotten...

    I know that, in dressage the higher the marks the better. And in Eventing, marks are changed to penalty points, so the lower the score the better.

    But I just heard one of the commentators say...

    I had not read about the footing, but it seems odd that only one horse went so lame that it had to be withdrawn. Was the mare ridden before the rain started?

    Let me tell you, for the next many years my coach was extremely aggressive about correcting people who jumped ahead. "No one gets hurt falling off the horse's butt."[/QUOTE]

    I saw many pictures of CR riding, both before and during the accident. CR was entirely too tall for size of the horse. When he went forward over a jump, his head was already at the horse's ears,...

    I know that I know nothing and that CdJ and Valegro are outstanding, but does it bother anyone else that Valegro's right front leg moves forward a lot higher than his left front leg?

    What happened to Legolas' left hind leg, trotting up center line, at the end? It almost look like he had stringhalt (which I am sure he didn't) -- but he was really snatching it up.

    The "old" days when TB's comprised the majority of hunters were easier on the testers because most racehorses are taught to pee as soon as they hear someone whistle.

    I love the horse, but I can't figure out how he was Juvenile Champion off of 2 races. The GI was a regional race and the other was a plain old G3. He did not run in the BC (I know he had a problem,...

    And why would they have the opening ceremonies and the trot up a full day and a half before they start to show?

    I just paid mumble$44mumble to get LIVE broadcasting of WEG.

    Now, despite what screens I go to, every one of them says "Live -- starting at 2:10 (your time)".

    Since Normandy is 6? hours ahead...
