      So wait, does this mean there are horses who already did the initial 40km loop competing against horses that will skip that 40 km loop?

      I don't know anything about this discipline, but that seems pretty darn wrong.

        No everyone did the first 40km- they just didn't all go the same way at the start. The biggest issue IMHO is that those who finished that first 40km quickly, had to sit around for a long time after they were already warmed up and going and those that were slower didn't get as much rest at the others.

            It gets better...I had to keep pausing so I didn't miss the reining goes.

              I think also a few people did more than 40km because they went the wrong way once on course, and had to turn around/backtrack

                      Thats actually a good question. Will be interesting to see how they finish. They are going to be absolutely saturated.

                        This is the World Championships, how the heck does this happen? Its inexcusable, I feel so sorry for these competitors. Not a good start to the WEG.

                          I wonder if Michael Jung is happy that his horse ended up with a minor injury and had to stay home.

                            Is it just me or does it look like the endurance competition is being run through a construction site? It looks like there is piles white railing (or some sort of plastic tubing) on the ground. The mud is somewhat understandable as the weather conditions aren't ideal, but couldn't they at least clean up the clutter? I hope the rest of the competition goes smoothly...

                              What a nightmare. I couldn't make it through the entire video. I'm dying from embarrassment.

                                10 horses did not make it to the restart, for various reasons. Team Ireland is down a rider.

                                  though I was a bit amused by the cop, you can just tell he was thinking "f**king horse people!"

                                    It is being run through a construction site. Al-Hamadi smuggled out some cell phone videos yesterday & the day before. Well worth seeing!

                                      Reasons related to the initial mix up on the start? Or more normal reasons?

                                        I don't know much about endurance, I think they were medical - as in they didnt pass the first vet. But really, if the race is starting again, it seems not fair to those riders.
