    I was on the edge of my seat waiting for Anky's score. I love Ravel and can't wait to see him in person at the WEG next year.

    Oh, my!!! I was so nervous for them. Ravel was H-O-T when he started that test. I was a bit worried, but it just got better and better. Those half-passes.... my gosh that horse is like a big rubber band he's so elastic and Steffen shows it all off.

    Wow, wow, wow and changing up the music to add Viva la Vide was PERFECT!

    Can't you please say THANKS to the Dutch judge ?

    I can see the next battle between the Germans and the Dutch rising on the horizon

    That is awesome, and I am especially happy for them as I was sick of reading the pre-WC media coverage saying that first and second place were a lock.

    Now, Theo, are you insinuating that the Dutch judge gave Ravel a higher score so he would beat out Satchmo?

    You can read can't you.

    I also heard that the Dutch judge will get a casino named after him

    It was a truly beautiful ride, and I liked the addition of Coldplay.

    It was a beautiful ride and the insinuation that the score was anything other than earned is pretty offensive. I also loved the Coldplay!

    Thumbs up

    Fantastic Achievement...although in my mind Isabel was very close- maybe better in some aspects...but He deserved to win the whole thing- because he was consistent and the horse is so swingy and supple....!
