    He would have won Badminton in 2010 or 2011 if it were not for the FEI dressage coefficient. It was the year that Mark Todd won and Happy Times finished 4th.

    Poor Megan Jones. Can you imagine getting the call that "you're up", and then just as fast you're not? Horses.

    She does have bad luck. She's the rider that Peter Atkins replaced at WEG.

    Very sad circumstances, first for Shane then for Megan. Both have a run of bad luck, Shane had this happen in 1996, Megan in 2010 when her horse became travel sick on the way to Kentucky. Lucky Australia has so many first rate riders, Sam I am sure will be a brilliant addition. Mind you, there are now more Australian horses on the US team than on the Australian team!
