    Quite happy at the switch for I like WiI Colman's style. If there was an injury then of course I wish a speedy recovery to the horse, but boy, talk about timing, huh? After this little soap opera post on Phillip D, may we can get one more swap out and get Lauren on the main time with a new reserve?

    Living around 60 minutes from WEG I am not, at this time, as concerned as many regarding the impact of Florence on the Games. If it hits NC as currently projected the Upstate and Tryon area may see some rain, some wind, but nothing major. My friend scored two tickets to the Eventing Stadium run so come rain or shine I'll be battling the crowd to get to see the final phase and yes, can better cheer on a team.

      I hope he gets booted, just for moral sake. I can not stand that type of stuff.

        Wait, have they announced individual/team split yet? Or are you just assuming Lauren would be the individual since Bug is young?

          Didn't one of the Wills benefit or speak out at some point in the past WRT ML and a team and a horse not passing a vet check to get on a plane? I have a vague memory of something years ago with one of her other horses.

          Whether or not the horse is injured it's shameful the US let it get this far. Do we even have a reserve rider now if something causes another rider to drop out?

            Politics and optics. She doesn't get the 'stigma' of being left off the team and USET avoids the lawsuit over the omission. Pressure increased by the UK team leaving Ollie Townsend off the team because 'his horses will not hold up as well in the climate'. Cue pulling for injury, which can happen at any time for any rider.

            She still gets the cachet of being named to the WEG team, Will Coleman actually rides and USET avoids the potential PR fallout.

            Not saying this is what happened but there's a lot of win-win-win in this.

              Did a post get deleted or is there something going around on facebook, because I feel like I am missing something.

                This might be from my confusion. As I understand there are four riding as a "team" and from the original list I took the 4 to be Martin, Dutton, Symansky and Little with the reserve being Lauren, so out goes Little, in comes Wil from the reserve and I still thought Lauren as reserve (or individual?).

                If they have not set the final 4 I'd take Lauren over Dutton or Martin any day. Mainly I am just glad to not see Little play. Sorry for the confusion.

                  A post got deleted with some allegations about PD. I will not repeat them Mods, just stating that is where the confusion is coming from.

                    There is no reserve. 4 riders are designated for the team with one drop score; the fifth is the individual. I think some of us speculated that ML would be the individual who could be eliminated without damaging the Team and could still go for a medal. The final decision probably won't be made until the very last minute possible.

                    I only hope that Will Coleman will have a MUCH better trip than he did at London. And parenthetically, for a modern TB, I LOVE his horse's pedigree. It's French and very unlike the normal run of American pedigrees.

                      The individuals will be announced after the first trot up, from what I understand.
