    Anyone want a thread for the Olympic dressage live?

    The BBC News at Ten just had a lovely piece about Charlotte - struck such a nice tone about her performance and achievements.

    Anyone want a thread for the Olympic dressage live?

    I think so! I get embarrassingly confused when I look at the times listings though 🙈 It’ll be fun: I’m FJing on Sat starting at 9am and last horse is due on course at 7.20pm 😑 Then drive an hour home and power through to the cross-country, armed with lots of snacks and wine.

    I’m so proud of them all that I feel quite tearful 😭

    I am such a terrible sport. Just gleefully exclaimed “she f***ed up those changes” to myself.

    Me too! I very much doubt it, but I can hope it 😄

    My internet is TERRIBLE today - I’m still halfway through Carl’s test! It looked really good from what I saw though… 🤞🏻

    Heads Up - you NEED Discovery+ to watch the Olympic Eventing

    Totally agree with you. I think they’ve been pretty fair in the way they’ve managed to get a balance of coverage across the main sports. The only things I’ve seen given solid air time on BBC are the triathlons and the hockey matches, and they’ve largely been on at times when they haven’t clashed...

    I signed up last night - think you just need to scroll down past that box? It’s optional.

    I’m going to attempt to dual screen it on my laptop while working on compliance documents 😄 I’ve got next week as annual leave so will be all-nighting it for the cross country. Hopefully we’ll have a similar thread for that!

    Classic! 😂 The evening show (6.30/7 till about 9?) last night had a really decent roundup of all the key points from the day including interviews with most of the medal winners so hopefully tonight’s version will have a good bit of dressage coverage.

    You know what’s really nice? The non-horsey side of my Twitter feed is *delighted* about the dressage and how well we’ve done.

    I think bronze is an amazing result, given the relative inexperience of all of those horses.

    This looks lovely. Shame about the mistake earlier but hopefully the other scores will be racking up to balance that out.

    Thank you for the maths assistance 😄 Trying to watch it but work keeps getting in the way!

    Glad it’s not just me! Take it Carl went well?

    Anyone want a thread for the Olympic dressage live?

    Does anyone have a link to the results that makes sense? The official Olympics website is showing it differently to how they did during the GP and I can’t work out percentages 😩

    First CCI-S 2* Opinions

    I don’t compete but we FJ at Somerford and it always looks a nice, fair track to me. Flowing rather than twisty, and some good, not too testing, terrain. Tend to see lots of the big names bringing their youngsters up for a run which I always think is a good sign!

    Would you cover their vet bill?

    Happened to the pony I was with at the beach once and it was bloody terrifying. The dog latched onto his hind leg (thankfully he had boots on) and was an absolute menace. The useless owner sent her small children to come and catch it so they were darting around under the feet of poor Rocky who...

    Butterflies!

    Not too many round here (quite urban) but we went for a walk up on Barbury Castle last weekend while we were staying down there and I’ve never seen so many butterflies in one place!

    I just bought my first cob! Introduction + feed advice + photos!

    There’s something very cathartic about burning things. Glad Rigsby is still enjoying his celery!

    Weekend Plans :)

    FJ-ing at Barbury all weekend 😄 I love it there - so much sky! Started off with the water jump today and I think we’re roving sector judges tomorrow, for the morning at least.

    BE Venues running UA

    Is Cholmondeley near enough for what you need? Not exactly Midlands but not that far away... they run a UA the weekend after their BE event.

    I was just about to say this! Same sort of really handsome, lean look about him.

    I really, really like him. Is he getting on well with Ludo?

    Sharers what do you do/enjoy?

    I did M’s jobs on my days, so that was muck out, waters, hay, feed and a quick field poo pick in winter, then in summer just poo picking, checking field water and checking the stable in case he’d been in for a snooze during the hot part of the day. One turn out or bring in was covered by someone...

    Would you consider buying this horse?

    Well that’s the risk she took when letting him go out on trial, isn’t it? Easier said than done, but try and ignore her!
