    Best in freestyle wins Individual Gold.

    2. Individuals
    Only the Grand Prix Freestyle Competition counts towards the final Individual Classification.
    The winning individual athlete is the one (1) with the highest final percentage in the GrandPrix Freestyle Competition. The second placed individual athlete is the one (1) with the next highest total percentage in the Grand Prix Freestyle, and so on. Percentage scores are given with numbers to three (3) places after the decimal point.

    Freestyle is live now and I just have to say I LOVE RUBI!!

    Lovely test, lots of personality and highlights, but there were a few mistakes. The BBC commentator (a judge, I believe, and doing a wonderful job of commentating) loved it too and thought he might take the lead.

    Well I'm attempting to enjoy the freestyle while tuning out Lucinda Green talking over the music.. the entire thing! Gaa. Though had to laugh that she actually said she got comments/complaints from viewers telling her to shut up so that they could enjoy the music! lol She kind of has but could be quieter.

    Doubt I will watch much more since its getting late here.

    Good Morning !

    Should be a fun class to watch.

    No commentary on the NBC live feed thank goodness.

    Although I do love Mike Tucker on BBC.

    Sweden - music from the Who's rock opera TOMMY. Now that is a blast from my somewhat fuzzy past. Very nice horse that she has.

    I want to make me a freestyle.............

    That backstage scene said it all. Steffen and his team were completely silent.

    Too bad.

    Nice performance for Gal. He makes it look so easy.

    Ravel definitely looked tired. But I thought he looked a bit tired in the grand prix too. He looked MUCH better in the special. Oh well.
    I cant say that I am a fan of Gal's music. For Totilas OR Undercover.

    I find Gal's music very wishy-washy, but I'm not a fan of his anyway.
    Fuego soon

    hmmmm... I thought Ravel looked somewhat refreshed today in the freestyle, but tired (mentally and physically) in the special.

    Friends were talking about this yesterday - how some horses looked tired in the special....could it be that's how they normally look, because they were so fresh in the GP....

    I would love to know what Steffan leaned over and said to Ravel after the final salute. I'm sure it was something very loving!

    You hope that Ravel is not his horse of a lifetime because you'd like to think that he is going to continue to have horses of similar quality; but at the same time what they have is so special.
