    I was wondering about that. USed to be the norm, but I thought that a schooling fence after elimination was highly illegal now.

The horse should not be punished for something it could not help. Kicking, spurring, whipping and otherwise having a temper tantrum was disgraceful. Is it just me, or did it sound like there were groans and gasps of disapproval from the crowd?
    There were very audible gasps indeed.

    What's up with the NBC coverage? Said it was on from 1:30-2 but they didn't show any Americans? Are they going to show more later?

    Have to agree, rider error by Beezie. Shame though. Lovely scope.

    Far as I can tell if you sit with NBC on all day long you will be graced with 6-8 rounds every 2-3 hours. I believe they have been using it as filler while they open the roof on the tennis court and prepare for other main sports feeds, like water polo .

    Count on a commercial every two rounds. Yes. Two. Moves slower than a day outside the short stirrup ring.

    Although I will say the camerawork is excellent and watching on the wide screen TV with no buffering and full picture quality is just such a treat.
