Charlotte's was so much better than the German pair, both of their horses were BTV a lot. Missed Carl's but I think his score was the best Nip Tuck has ever done. This gave me a giggle: http://newsthump.com/2016/08/15/wheres- ... nds-horse/

“I want to stand on a specially made podium with the medal round my neck and tears in my eyes listening to the theme from Black Beauty cranked up to eleven while the flag goes up.


:rofl:

Loving the cycling :thumbup: that Cav race was completely baffling I agree Helen.

Just seen him do the second round, horse equally bad-tempered. Here's a vid of their round the other day, he nearly got chucked off at the end!!

Brilliant Diving last night, some of the top divers totally fluffing it, bet that stings a bit, landing on your back after a 10m dive :notworthy: one of the GB ladies has got into the semis

I'd be pretty bad tempered as well if I was as talented as that and doing my best and some idiot was jabbing me in the mouth every few strides

Exactly- the showjumpers level of lightness puts me off completely- it's pretty much all hauling it about :sad:

i've just watched a few YouTube clips of my old heroes ( Paul and Alwin Schockemohle, Harvey Smith et al)
They had their own faults I know but they all rode with such long reins and didn't yank their horses about half so much
