    Default Follow all the Equestrian events here in one spot!

    We're providing this forum as a place to follow all the Olympic equestrian events in one place. Follow all the disciplines in one spot, discussing the pre-Games events, the competitions themselves, and any aftermath with your fellow COTHers.

    Chronicle staffers covering the Games will also post links to coverage here as well.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks - how about an FAQs/Reference section (ie; to prevent people constantly asking where to watch it on tv etc)

    I doubt it.

    I am not sure about geeked out but I did think it was a great idea.

    this is awesome! i'm going to the jumping games in london to watch for my senior trip! (not the whole thing.. that would be terribly more expensive than it already is) this is great though because now i can follow them before i get there and after i leave. thanks! (:

    Default for the mods over there

    I know we have stellar photogs from COTH. I know the photo journalists from H&H are good too, but the xc photos left me with a desire for MORE! Can you snap a few to give us a better idea of the hilly landscape, and a shot of the spreads, like that crazy ring of Saturn? You guys always do a stellar job, and I know you know we are hanging on every shot!
    On the few times I have ever photographed a 4* course, I took lots of side shots to see the magnitude of the spread, or the depth of the drop. Of course, they were for only my own enjoyment too!
    I know you will do your best, which is excellent, and we are all, [speaking in the Royal we,] hanging on your every word. And Shot.
    Let the games begin!!!!!!
    Another killer of threads

    Not sure if people in the USA can access CTV, Sportsnet etc but check it out to see...they are covering all the equestrian!!

    Edited to add: if it does let you, click on schedule and look for any of the equestrian that has been broadcast (ie, dressage early this morning) and you can rewatch it!
