    Is it just me or does the course look HUGE and difficult?

    Did you see the piggies? Yikes. Makes my little jumps seem so tame. Wish we could get a live feed.

    I'm so, so excited for her! I hope she goes well tomorrow.

    And yes! I think the course looks huge, too. Some of those fences I'm like, ohmygosh where does it end?! But that could be their dramatic camera angle, too.

    Yeah I think the camera angles definitely play up the fences, but still impressive. The fences themselves are artwork that's for sure. Definitely rooting for Allison tomorrow!

    Good luck to Allison.

    I'm getting tired of the cutesie jumps on course and the ducks and other critters. I may just be ancient enough to look at some of those jumps and think they belong on a miniature golf course. I keep looking for the sign that signs "get a hole in one and win a free game".

    That was exactly my thought! Piggies?
    Although my cat likes to sit right under the rails in the ring, which is cute. We have to herd him away when we want to use it. Maybe he would wear a pig nose, then we would be on our way!

    Awesome. Did she wear a helmet again?
    Hindsight bad, foresight good.

    I think that photo and score should put to rest any fears that international dressage judges will not score a rider well who is wearing a helmet in their test!

    Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

    I thought Will Coleman was supposed to do this event with Twizzle again, or am I confused? Is his horse OK or still in contention for WEG?
    I evented just for the Halibut.

    I would only hope to look so elegant.
    She has all my "have a good ride"s for tomorrow.
    And please, a special prayer for little Will. This is the toughest course he has ever seen.

    Default GO Jen & Pooh

    Standing 25th out of 43 on a 55.2 dressage score (TG it's not a dressage show).

    Tomorrow she'll be on her broom... Watch out Germany!

    Go Pooh! Go Jen!

    Good Luck to all the AMERICANS! Go USA!
