    I am so happy that they did the compassionate thing for Jennie. It is so hard to get to that level, and then have something like this happen. It may come to be that she can't compete tomorrow, but at least she has a chance. Instead of them just saying no. Prayers and jingles being sent her way!
    May the sun shine on you daily, and your worries be gone with the wind.

    I was surprised to hear the GJ allowed Jennie to switch the ride to Fri. Very nice of them to give her that option! Hope it works out for her.

    Allowed it because it IS allowed:

    The jury, comprised of president Nick Burton of Great Britain, Christina Klingspor of Sweden and Brian Ross of the United States, is permitted to postpone a ride under “extraordinary circumstances”—in Brannigan’s case, this exception was made at the request of the veterinary delegate, Dr. Catherine Kohn.
    Good for them. They did right by the horse and right by the sport.

    Yes, I guess I was more surprised they actually did it even though it's part of the rules. Lol Now we'll have to see how it goes tomorrow.

    Good decision by the Ground Jury, compassionate and sporting.
    I hope she will be able to compete.

    I dreamed a couple nights ago that they won, so I'm glad they still have a shot!

    I also dreamed I was there. Sadly, that's not even close. (As I sit here in my cubicle.)

    When you look at the long-term strategies that these riders create to get their horses positioned for the really big, national team type competitions, along with the expenses involved in having to revise those strategies, I think the ground jury's decision was the only sensible thing and I'm very glad to see them make such a decision in the best interests of the horse, the rider and, in a way, for the long-term interests of future teams. I hope it works out for Jennie and Ping.

    EN just posted that they've withdrawn this morning. I'm still glad they gave her a shot.

    Poor Jennie. Wasn't this supposed to be her first CCI****?

    I hope the horse is back to 100% soon.

    I believe she has competed at Pau. This was her first Rolex though. It is unfortunate. Hopefully they will be back in action soon. She's a nice rider and has a lovely string of horses. There should be many other Rolex runs in her future but it still doesn't make this sting any less.

    That's a damned shame. Hope the horse recovers quickly.

    I hope the groom is all right, also; I should imagine she didn't have an easy go trying to keep a big fit running horse anchored at the end of the longe line. Not to mention I'm sure she's kicking herself, no matter how well she understands the physics of a person trying to hang on to that big fit running horse.

    I just clicked on the Rolex link (within the link above) and it said page not found

    I guess all the coverage is below it. Wonder why they have a link or read more? Oops on somebody's part.
