    Don't know but I have seen them on the flat. He is that stunning. I believe Natalie said he was Dutch, with a driving background. I saw her ride a prelim test with him at SPHTII. Took my breath away.

    Well done. It warms the cockles of my heart. Anything that steals thunder from the snooty DQ's warms the cockles of my heart. Go rock that XC and stadium now, show the world who the "complete" horseperson is now! Billy Museler would be proud.

    I saw it and shot it, and I was amazed. Had trouble keeping my camera trained. I'm no judge, but the movements I saw were graceful. Certainly will post them later with the rest of the weekend. Michael was videoing from the A side. You might cajole him into posting that somewhere..

    How do you get a 15.2 if only half points are allowed? I obviously don't understand the scoring.

    Isn't she the daughter/some family member of the BO of chatt hills? Would that affect her score at all? Probably not but, ya know...

    They really were THAT nice... Someone said "in a class of their own"
    I saw him floating across warm up. And from the warm up ring you could see her helmet... not bobbing, but floating!!!

    I'll also say that there was some other really nice rides too.. despite those fit fit fit ponies doing their best to turn it into XC day I saw many "airs above grounds"

    Natalie is a gifted and beautiful rider, and has been for many, many years. I delighted in watching her the year that she won Fair Hill International three-day event.
    She is a completely talented rider and horsewoman and I think quite capable with a good horse of a top score like that -- I've not seen the video, would love to, but am not surprised at the number. There have been scores in the teens before at recognized horse trials, what difference would it make WHERE it is earned?

    If you had seen the horse go you would not have posted this.

    Her father owns Chatt Hills and I'm sure that fact did not earn her that amazing score. I am dying to see a video! A big congrats to her!

    Heck, Carl B often rides in his own events, and HE's never gotten a score like that!

    Wow!

    I look forward to the photos, and hope we get the video of this one, too!
