    flyracing (and others),

    WHY do we need FEI sanction for these additional events? Is there a rule which says so? My "vision" is to run these divisions under FEI rules, but not waiting for FEI...

    In the last several years, it has never "been our weekend" Yes, there is always the anomaly which proves the point but ending mid pack has become the norm in International competition.

    Why am I not sad that Sharbatly is out? In the link to this news it shows the picture of him standing on the podium 4 years ago, talking on his cell phone.

    No class......

    Someone predicated a theory about the time allowed:

    1. It was the same for everyone, so, as Isaac Newton said, time is relative. :)
    2. If the time allowed was increased so that a number of...

    Not saying that this was the case with Michael Jung, but before comparing times, look to see if the faster horse was held on course.

    Horses which are held on course have 2 - 10 minutes to walk...

    I read that he had 2 refusals at the top of the last water(?) and, when circling him to present him again, he could not get him out of a walk. (This from someone who was right there -- not from...

    The author does not even know that if a team does not finish 3 riders, it is disqualified from team competition. I guess she/he is looking at the scores and sees that the USA has 1000+ penalties --...

    ^^^ This. Even if it isn't the rule, I think it should be. If a horse is on a team representing a country, it should be owned by a citizen of that country. Otherwise, team championships do not...

    I am loving watching the replay. Only the horses who are very exciting or who help the their teams scores are being shown, and, knowing ahead what is going to happen at each fence, they can slo-mo...

    I agree -- not scary watching (in general) the runouts. Most of them are "steering problems" -- which, I am assuming, are not the result of lack of steering, but rather of the lines taken to avoid...

    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

  17. 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?

    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,...

    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.
