    Nicola Wilson Update

    Not sure if anyone saw yesterdays update video, but looked like Nicola is making some really good progress. I really have my fingers crossed as it looks like it’s all been quite quick progress as well going by what Pippa Funnell has said in the improvement in her since she saw her!

    Nicola Wilson Update

    A much brighter update, and a return of sensation is a very good sign. She’s in very good hands, and I can’t think of many people who’d be more determined to be doing back what they love than Nicola. Fingers crossed for a full recovery

    Nutty horses

    I’m glad it’s not just mine. She went from being her normal self to extra bucks and kicking out at jump standards for just being there in the arena. Not pain related, as she’ll happily trot past until she’s had a bit of a canter and got a bit excited and then it starts and she just won’t settle...

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    Even if the dog was allowed to be off-leash, the dog should still be under control and if you can’t call your dog to you and it comes back instantly it shouldn’t be off the lead anywhere other than a dog park or your own property. Removing the horses from the scenario, if a child is playing and...

    Fence for OT, so now looks like it’ll be between Laura and Ros

    Honestly I think it’s maybe time they started looking into it. Rugby has a TMO to look over events that could have been foul play - even when there was no malicious intent, if someone accidentally may have done foul play it’s reviewed and a decision is made. If a horse was to add an extra side...

    Not a great start for Gireg, some of these horses definitely look tired

    Austin O’Connor clear over fences but finish with 0.4 time faults, meaning they nearly finish on their dressage score. Great achievement, just a shame he’s out of the top 10 currently due to not having a great dressage

    Austin O’Connor in now, still on his dressage score

    I think it’s why if they cracked down on all incidents and had something like a TMO to review it would benefit to an extent, and rider who makes several mistakes on course that causes the horse to peck on landing being examined or any near-falls etc., to be reviewed. It’s also why I’m not sure...

    Beautiful round! Well done Tammy Smith, clear and inside the time. Absolutely wonderful partnership to watch, you can really see they’re very in tune with each other

    Mai Baum looks like he’s on springs! What a gorgeous horse

    Badminton XC thread

    I think you’re right with making it easier meaning more risks. I do think an alternative would be making the long routes longer and less technical and short routes and any rider who’s had a refusal at any part of a combination/short route is then forced to jump the long route. Would be a better...

    I swear the commentators said it was her first 5* yesterday on XC, so maybe I misheard or maybe they were wrong too lol

    To add as well, very impressed with Ariel Grald’s jumping round and think she’s going to be someone to watch out for in the future

    Badminton XC thread

    So some of the things I found interesting about xc; A lot of the first timers seemed to do better than experienced riders, I was very impressed by Ariel Grald, who completed her first 5* and looked to have a good round once her horse settled and rode well. Could it be that some of the first...

    I think commentators said her and her horse have won Adelaide 3 times, so wouldn’t say they’re inexperienced. Horse just took a dislike to the fence and hesitated, and that’s not really a fence you can get away with a bit more hesitant jump at
