Sounds like we were better off staying at home to watch then! Lots of people on the FEI FB page demanding refunds as they couldn't get in at all yesterday :blink: French "organisation" at its best :wink:

Have been looking at pics on the web. Quite like these:

Definitely don't like these :sad:

With you 100% there! The first horse looks like a really sweet little thing. One of the greys in the water has a head quite like Kinns. The Iz-a-like doing dressage -oh dear. Don't like the look of that spur digging in and I can just tell that noseband is a bit 'juste' :thumbdown:

Pretty sure that's Parzival, the poor horse Adelinde Cornelissen does tug-of-war with every time having rollkured it before going in to the arena :thumbdown:

Those are great shots.

I finlly got to see a tiny bit of the reining, only the top four horses shown, think the one that came fourth was the best, German or Belguim I think

She is a repeat offender. I just want to climb into the photo and take her hands off the reins :random:

I didn't see the reining, ME. Helen probably knows which horse you mean.

:agree: He was called Ruf Tuf Juice, ridden by a German. He was far more sympathetic to the horse than the winner.....did you see the bit when they'd gone out of the arena and he took the bridle off? Huge port on that bit :thumbdown:

Yes they are huge, I was bit :shock: at Bob's when I saw them, he did tell me only top very well trained horses should have them as in compative riding the hands should only move by mm to change the gait ect, There was a young rider at the extreme do with what looked like a high port long shank and she really should not have :thumbdown:


Hopeing to see some carrige driving this week :thumbup:
