    Pics of your Connies!

    I will have to delve into old photos but I worked on a yard with 24 connies at one point. We would buy, normally from Clifden, as unbroken and wild ponies and back and school them before selling on or keeping for the riding school. excellent all rounders, great temperaments and generally nice...

    Poor Penelope, I bet she is feeling horrendous right now. USA have done really well but I so want Sweden to get the gold, they have all jumped so well all week 🇸🇪

    And we’ve withdrawn. Sensible decision I think.

    i know, that’s why I was shocked to see them on the team. Holly is a classy rider but I don’t think Denver or Romeo are up to Olympic level personally 😕

    Much better round from Romeo but I do feel for Harry. I guess we will have to see whether Ben does jump but may not be worth it 🤷🏻‍♀️

    also, apart from the Lithuanian rider and the Chilean whose reins broke, none of them got stroppy, pretty much all of them patted their horse. Even the USA guy who had a fair few poles gave his horse lots of love and a kiss on the neck. They seemed to appreciate the horses and those horses were...

    so here is my list: Cuba 1st Mexico 1st 2nd Japan 1st Kazaqstan 1st Egypt 1st Chile 1st China 2nd (I think) Lithuania (aggressive) I think the women need to sort themselves out because the standard of riding was much better today than their riding yesterday.

    So far, I have 8 on a list of competitors that (in my opinion) were not up to the standard. Not saying others weren’t messy but the rest gave with their hands and didn’t interfere too much, allowing the horses to do their job. I do think that they shouldn’t wear spurs because alot of them do not...
