    I was so hoping for an all-Brit podium. Oh well. COME ON CHARLOTTE.

    I'm pretty sure they said he was being sold after the Olympics..I think it was a bonus that he could ride here because I had heard he was close to being sold last winter

    Parzival's music is cheesy. He looks fantastic, though.

    someone is trying to make a very big point.... no other horses do we get closeups of gaping mouths... but we sure get that with her.

    It's a testament to Parzival's conformation that he can still display the nice quality of gaits while being held in a very short neck.

    That must be what the judges are seeing (88%)

    Who is the judge at K? Conservative marking --- but (s)he is really hard on the Germans and gentle with the Dutch.

    You know, I dunno nothin' about dressage, as I said, but when I can see the mouth wide open on the far-away camera shots, and it gets an 88, I start wondering where the fruitbat is presently residing.

    Ditto. Really weird. I can see a high score on gaits, but the rest? Color me confused.
