    Eventing Nation said that he lost the shoe early in the course.

    I am crushed for Becky.

    Jingles for Comets' hurting hoof.

    I feel bad for her farrier, Roy. I know he is gutted.

    What rotten luck. I was really rooting for her. I was cheering and screaming Go Becky, Go Comet at my computer during dressage and cross country.

    Horses bring so many highs and lows.

    Truly disappointed for them. So disappointed I had to take a break and find something, anything, to distract me for a minute until my stomach returned. Turned out be an article about a college football comeback. Desperate times!

    I was really, really hoping for an individual medal. It just seemed right for them. So disappointed. I'm consoling myself with the reminder that this takes nothing away from their fantastic goes these last couple of days. They were in medal contention at WEG. That, in itself, is pretty damn awesome. They are champions in many of our minds. And I wondered why Comet was not on the team all along. He's just a pro. Testament to Becky Holder, of course.

    So sad!!!!!! Ugh...many tears all around I am sure. Has he had issues? Or is it just the shoe...?

    (in any event, they had an awesome, beautiful round, and I am still VERY VERY proud of her!)

    Horses.... Must be even worse at that level....

    On the upside - if he lost the shoe early on in the course, as reported, and kept on trucking around and put in a spectacular XC trip like THAT - well, what a massive tribute to the bravery and heart of this wonderful OTTB!!

    Jingles for his poor little footy and I hope he gets well soon!

    This. What a heart!
    Have YOU ever looked into the eyes of a rich white child who has just lost a jumping competition?
