    Talking And the team is...... (Got it now!)

    So clearly we're gonna need a thread because 8pm London/UK (aka wherever the team is) is approaching in a few hours.

    With just over 4 hours to go we're all waiting to see who will make it and who won't.

    There was lots of speculation on the Barbury thread but now it's time to see who is the real deal and will be wearing the colors in London.

    Will Karen make another team?

    Will Arthur prove his detractors wrong?

    Will Tiana's "left field" assignation to the short list prove to have been justified?

    Will either Will find a "way?"

    Will Boyd be able to bring the right horse for the course?

    Will Phillip start bringing some of his Gold Medal past to the USA?

    Can Clark prove that his consistency is back?

    Can anyone explain to Neville that wind sucking is one thing, but leg hanging is quite another!!!

    Stay tuned for all these and more......

    Did they say the announcement would be at 8? I need to go ride my horse and quit refreshing Eventing Nation then!

    On Boyd's blog it said that the riders have been told to gather at 5:30 pm, so about 1.5 hours from now.

    OK, I'll say it. Phillip and Mystery Whisper have not completed a 4* together. Tiana hasn't either. And Sinead gets left off? I feel sorry for her.

    Shocked at seeing Tiana instead of Sinead...but I guess we have to trust the selectors. Go USA!

    Still waiting for an official press release (which I haven't seen yet) before I get too excited/dissappointed.

    Got it from Heather Morris posting on FB. She has gotten info from one of the selectors directly.

    WOW... All of the other short listed riders are alternates and are unranked.

    How can they be unranked? That doesn't make sense.

    HJU just posted an "official press release" from USEF confirming this list.

    If it's true, I can't believe they picked Tiana over Sinead.

    Hmm.... The olympics is not 4*. Do I recall correctly that it ain't even 3* this time around, or is that the heat driving me batty ?
