    watched the GP at work on T1 lines - wonderful

    here at home on DSL I get stop-motion and it's every third or fourth stride -- too frustrating

    (interestingly everthing is smooth when I go to the youtube videos)

    The reports states, “Elizabeth reported that she accidently put down this pony, ........, at the show.”

    I'm just curious to see if the horses will relax more this time around.

    There's some jerkiness in my vid feed today. Diff comp though so could be a comp speed issue.

    He's a stallion. You can see that his forelock isn't braided and most people who ride stallions in their tests do not braid the forelock.

    Yes, a 1990 stallion by Raskat, it says here:

    But breed/ registry affiliation was not provided.

    Thanks, I didn't know about the forelock custom. I've groomed stallions in the US and we braided the forelock. This was 20 years ago though....

    I'm surprised by Minderhoud's score. The haunches were swinging all over the place in the changes.

    Yikes. I wonder if any of the competitors are using cool packs under their clothes.

    According to some other sites, Balagur is an Orlov Trotter.
