    I love how the higher ranked riders are seeded at the end - it makes it easier for me to plan around my watching. I don't mind if I miss some of the earlier riders, but I will be sure to watch the last 20!

    I'm just glad I can watch again! So annoying Canadians had to watch the Nations Cup on FEI TV

    not overly impressed with Brianne's riding today. Granted I am not the one sitting on the difficult horse, but seems she's being a little bit of a jerk on the bridle today. I know she's usually a top contender, is this mount always a difficult ride?

    And what point do you call it a day? Do you have a point fault wise that you just retire and save your horse for another day?

    Wowsers! LOVE Royce! He seems incredibly scopey, but almost too busy playing to be bothered with jumping around. Huge credit to Margie for being able to focus him enough to get him around in the time allowed. He looks like he could have easily cleared another foot higher, lol. Definitely enjoyed his job today.

    Love Royce! He just doesn't think he needs to listen to Margie, it's too easy for him. I think Royce and Big Star are my two favourite's at WEF this year, can't wait to see Royce do more (he's only 8!)

    Agree with comments about Royce! Amazing talent - I just kept wishing he'd settle down with his head - must have been a tough ride!

    V seemed very strong in the bridle for Katie, she really made him back up there. (almost too much?).

    Actually I really admired her for stopping dead in the middle & making it a schooling round. I'd never have the nerve - that's why she's Katie and I'm not!!

    would having the FEI barn quarantined affected how fresh some of the horses were? How much hacking /prep could they do when the barn was closed?TIA

    I always get so confused when Darragh Kenny and Darragh Kerins are in the same class. I'm not good with names

    No, it wasn't. She's another young rider I really like. Horse jumped yesterday, just didn't have it going on today. She was right to retire.

    Too bad for Vandavid, but I love him anyway! I'm a sucker for that wide white blaze. Cute horse, just not his day.

    What is the V-shaped piece of leather for on the martingale worn by Victor? What does it do?

    Yes, I thought she handled it well. Better than some other retirees we've seen today.
