    It was a lovely ride and she was wearing her lovely helmet again. What a smart pair. I enjoyed most of the rides. Beautiful!

    I didn't have time to watch it live, and would like to see her ride on the on-line replay. About when in the event did she ride? First? Last? Middle? Thanks!
    It's 2014. Do you know where your old horse is?

    It was a simply stunning test from a beautiful and talented pair. I LOVE that she rode in her helmet and was such a class act after the scores were posted. She really showed her talent and the partnership she has with her horse. So sorry to hear that this pair may part soon since he will be for sale but maybe someone will keep them together. *Fingers Crossed!*

    Honestly, I don't care what she was wearing on her head. There, I said it.

    She put in a great ride, the horse's frame contracted and extended as appropriate, and both seemed happy in their work. He looked tired but he sat well and he tried. His attitude overcame.

    After her ride I heard her telling someone that he was tired. She said he was "knackered," and he gave her all that he had. Made me tear up right along with her.

    Is there ANYWHERE besides the %&#@ NBC website (I do not have a pay TV subscription) where a video of her freestyle is posted? No one in the crowd with a video camera?
    Thanks.

    I just watched it on replay. What a lovely program topped off not only by the medal but her helmet and attitude as well. I also cried along with her.
