    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    And we’ve withdrawn.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 🤷🏻‍♀️

    i think so! Didn’t hold out much hope after seeing Denver and Romeo in the Nations Cup a little while ago.

    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.

    Yep, Lithuanian makes it 9th on my list!

    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...

    Floriet is a wonderful horse and being given a lovely ride.

    but he also didn’t interfere with the horse over the jump, have with his hands

    Think Jamie had to work for that as the horse was behind the leg.

    Belaud is a nice rider, shame he got unbalanced and lost his stirrup.

    The Spanish rider, although a little hair raising, may have decided it was best to give a forward ride depending on what he was told in the warm up by the owner/rider. both Mexicans not up to scratch and I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see Quidoso again. Chilean rider also isn’t up to it...

    Shame for this guatamalian rider as he seems to be a nice rider. apart from 3 so far, the riding has been so much better.

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    apart from the Cuban rider, the men have all been to a much higher standard than the women so far and patting the horses too. This German rider is nice!

    There was a french rider early on who although not her best discipline, was obviously conscious of not socking the poor horse in the mouth. She rode with a relaxed rein and left the horse to it and gave it a good pat. then there was a Chinese rider I think who, even when she finished, had a...

    See you tomorrow everyone! I really love the Swedish team and apart from the unlikely event of team GB getting it, I hope they get the gold.

    All In is just fabulous and what an achievement to have 2 medals to his name and (so far) never had a pole at the olympics! Sweden have been incredible this Olympics

    What was the reason for not having a drop score this time? Because of covid or something else? I hope they change it back because it really isnt working this time and its seen 2 horses fall where they probably would have been retired. The Israeli guys fall was particularly horrid and the...

    Shame about those 4 faults but Holly is such a classy rider.

    Oh, I am gutted for them and I guess he didn’t want to retire because of it being a team event but poor horse was completely overwhelmed with it all and still tried.

    Only just heard that Scott is out and Harry is in. please don’t shoot me guys but I don’t have much faith in GB for the teams 🙊 I do really like Holly but I saw her and Denver in the Nations Cup and didn’t go much on them. I know they have saved him so he may surprise me. maybe the day off...
