    Wow! Seems to me that there's a clear difference in energy between the clear horses and the others. Seacookie looked very energetic. That said, Seacookie seems to do some handy twisting to get over the fence sometimes.

    Heartbreak for Buck. He had a lovely go before those last three fences. Still a great weekend for him.

    Quimbo's round looked like a hunter round! Amazing!

    Did anyone see the bobble in the triple for Quimbo? It looked like he didn't want to put his right front down, but then looked fine later. It was strange.

    No one knows better than Andrew Nicholson not to take the show jumping for granted... I still remember his heartbreaking round on Spinning Rhombus in Barcelona... when he had 8 rails in hand.

    It is great to see him top of his game this weekend.

    Oh yes, that was a very catty move by the horse.

    I don't think it was a bobble. I think AN balanced him and he rocked back which made him pat the ground.

    The slow motion showed him clearly not putting weight on the right front for whatever reason. The horse had a beautiful round either way, it just made me nervous for a second!

    So eventers, by Rolex standards, was this an unusually fault-laden show jumping round?

    Default Well that was fun!

    Would be nice to see a US rider with a win instead of just acknowledgement of a "top US rider" for Buck this time around. But, boy, did Andrew put on a clinic! (Still can't make paragraphs so insert space here!) There did seem to be an awful lot of faults - I don't know if it's tired horses, tired riders, or not enough emphasis placed on the jumping phase during training. Or horses that just say, "meh, I'm not impressed." I think Ginny is now properly warmed up for the x-country phase (love that horse!)

    I think there are always more faults in sj when it is held on the last day, as opposed to Burghley and Luhmulhen when it is usually before the xc. The whole point is who can best finish all 3 days. Remember Ingrid Klimke and her horse, can't remember his name at the moment. He is a crappy show jumper He is always in the top 10 or near it until sj.
