    Michael Ryan, first fall. BUMMER FOR IRELAND!!!! It looked like he was having a great ride, but perhaps the undulation got to his horse. :'(

    Guess that second to last fence is built to withstand the horses banking it, after all. Glad to see that both Michael Ryan and the horse seem to be okay!

    Canadian Michelle Mueller had a refusal at one of the London towers in the arena, Irish rider Michael Ryan had a fall at I think the second to last jump? Looks like they're both ok.

    Michelle looks slow but steady, overjumped the first castle in the ring and he just wasn't ready for the sharp turn to the 2nd, she will be slow but looks controlled and good for a pathfinder for the Canadians

    GO BURTO!!!!


    Gutted for the Irish rider, but hopefully everyone will go nice and slow and Aussies can keep our lead. Only joking. Mostly.

    I agree 100%. I think more horses will make time, however - the course is simply not as tough as presented. But the rolls are taking their toll!

    Can't seem to get it live - Anyone else having problems? I'm on a Mac with Comcast. Will any of the xc be on regular TV today?

    The course is doing its job; rewarding exact riding and catching out those riders who are not always in 100% control. Since the rider is the one who is being "judged" on his ability, the course is doing exactly what it should.

    I love how the Englishman calls them "bounce-offs".

    Those horses are incredible. KUDO's to them.

    The Austrailian was 15 seconds nder the time. Amazing!

    Michelle adds a stride at the coffin but it works for her.

    First Japanese rider on course -- sticky fence at scalloped brush

    Nicola Wilson is getting GREAT cheers!!!

    The Japanese rider had a stop - looked like he just dropped his eyes for a second at the drop, and the horse said "huh?"

    Several sticky fences, then a refusal at whatever comes right before the towers in the arena. Nicola Wilson understandably getting lots of cheers!

    I agree, KUDOS to these horses!! And riders!!!

    And that Aussie horse had a HUGE stride - I thought he would have problems because he didn't look as compact and balanced as Boyd, but he just went for it!!

    LOVE the shallow water - not as much fun for the spectators as in the old days, but so much nicer for the horses!!
