    That big downhill is already looking a bit pockmarked. I bet by the end of the day it's going to be pretty chewed up.

    It certainly looks like the very very rolling terrain is as much of a test as the fences.

    Only 12 horses in, the turf is chopping up at some of the skinny approaches

    Linda Algottson finishes with only 20 very happy horse looked fit ending

    3 lesser known competitors on at the moment, Russian/Polish starting I believe

    Buzz was already a cross country hero. Now he's a legend. What an awesome boy, and a talented, humble rider.

    This isn't my discipline so I ask with all sincerity is all of this tree ducking normal? Lot of low branches on course, on corners etc. Why would you intentionally put riders under low trees at that pace?

    *grumble* I got up at 5 AM and it's still showing Women's Volleyball on NBCSN when it should be showing XC. What gives?

    Fall by the Belarussian (?), with a near fall of the horse.

    Long way through the water for the Russian, which is I think the first time we've seen that route.

    KOC should be up next!

    Samantha slides badly almost goes down in the logs, stops, and turns -- dislodges a rock at the base when chesting it -- stays on by a miracle -- goes on! Good on her!

    What I've gathered with the t.v. coverage, is they list all of the events that will be shown at some time within that time frame. The other day, it was well into the 7th hour mark before they showed the 15 minutes of eventing dressage. I certainly would NOT rely on t.v. coverage if it can be at all helped.

    Oh no. Hold on course. Looks like the Belarus horse is being loaded on the ambulance, maybe standing a bit funny LF?

    What just happened - there is a break? I saw a fall, but then a plane went overhead and I lost connection

    Just tuned in to someone getting flagged down. No volume at work, so had to wait to see the ambulance before it made sense. Hope everyone is OK.

    Sad I missed Otis and Opposition Buzz, but that's what the BBC replay is for. Sounds like they were both pretty brilliant.
