    Would you consider editing your post? It's pretty unfair to the rider to insinuate he's had 2 yellow cards, based on your speculation. I looked at the FEI results, and it does not appear that he's...

    A friend's mother, who admittedly is a life-long horsewoman, just won her Training division at 61. She sometimes lacks self-confidence so this was really inspiring!

    I thought the same thing about Jung, I had to read it twice to confirm it was the same two horses.

    My comment on Equine Canada was partly tongue-in-cheek. What level of funding does Eventing get? And Eventing athletes? Seems to me that a large amount of it goes to important So-and-Sos who "run"...

    If you (seriously?) are talking about Pavarotti - well, she does have some say. She would have talked to the owners and the team coach etc. and made a plan a long time ago - which it seems that they...
