    All i'm getting is a message: "Invalid parameters." Does anyone else have that, or is it me?

    Calecto is a nice horse, but I can't believe an 80% horse! Scored 70.486%.

    It's working for me, though I only caught the end of Tina's ride as she was saluting.

    This is a nicer test, Tinne and Don Auriello. This horse will be getting some good scores in a few years!

    I"m up! Watching on bbc via expat shield. Loved Tina's ride. Just a bit of loss of rhythm and unsteadiness, otherwise lovely.

    Hmmm ...thought Don Auriello did better than a 74.
    Really like that horse.

    Morning to all you dedicated people in N America! Tina had a lovely ride and it was a pleasure to see once again how much joy she gets from this horse. Overall the scores have been on the low side so far, in the context of recent international competitions. That's not necessarily a bad thing... will be interesting to see if the trend is carried through the rest of today. I am simply loving the fact that we have a REAL competition this time!

    Ah, there you are! MORNING!

    I downloaded ExPat last night and got everything set up. This morning? NO SOUND.

    Back to slow NBC feed.

    Eremo is doing the most impressive test of the morning so far (to me). They are a good partnership and that is a talented horse.

    BUT..... whhhyyyy would you take a baby to grand prix dressage?!?!?!!? It seems to have been a feature of all the events at Greenwich so far to have a screaming child in the stands.

    that's odd. I've got sound on mine. Wait for the break and try again? make sure all your browser windows are closed before you start up the shield.

    Good evening from Oz

    Weather looks good for today. Still sad for our Canadian rider who was eliminated yesterday.

    Lucinda Green needs to shut up a little bit. Think she's steadly talked through 3 riders and not taken a break yet. :O Liked her for eventing but some of her comments and gossip that she says.

    Called Tina " that circus rider girl" in a somewhat negative way. And figured these will be the last games we will see top hats and everyone will be wearing crash helmets "which look really big and crappy" ( not quite those words but weren't favorable).

    It's nice to not have commentary, though the screaming child was distracting, as was the squeaking during that last ride.

    Flash forward 28 years....the gold medal winning rider says "I owe it all to my mother who brought me to my very first Olympics when it was in London. I had no idea what I was watching of course, but she wanted me to see the pretty horses. I'm so glad she did."

    That's going to come out at some point !! lol.

    Yup I'm guessing she's signed on for the entire equestrian section. She's describing each movement they do and reading out the scores as she see them on top of her on comments. And already has admitted to not being the best judge of dressage either!

    Might be flipping channels and popping in periodically and maybe even on mute too!

    Did hear a fair bit of gossip about all the eventers from her too. Really hope most/all of it was public info! Everything for martial status/newly divorcing and who know what else!
