    Default Congratulations Great Britain

    What a thrilling dressage olympics! And how impressive is it that Carl Hester and Charlotte, his student, led the way, all the way, on his horses. Now, after the Freestyle, Carl will put both Uthopia and Valegro up for sale. isn't there an English angel who will buy both horses, and keep them with Carl and Charlotte; they both have years yet to show and win.

    Meh... Carl can obviously make more!!

    And Congats to the Brits!! I believe they (FEI horse sports) get some $ from a National Lottery funding 'scheme.' I wonder if that has contributed to these Games' fantastic success (so far!)

    I am thrilled for the Brits and although I am at work and was unable to watch any of today's final, it sounds as though the Brits had exemplary rides, none of that cranking the head into the chest style that is so popular. I'm glad the judges are finally rewarding horses that are happy in their work.

    Great Britain rocked it, and I must say it was in a field of the most spectacular and talented horses and riders I have ever seen.

    Easy to say. Horses like Valegro don't come along every year or so.

    Hmm after today maybe I should be British although they probably wouldn't want to claim me.

    I do have a dual citizenship but I don't normally consider myself British since I've lived longer in the US and Canada.

    Very cool, congrats to the host country
