Cross-country course designer

:USA Derek di Grazia (announced in 2016)

 

 

question from someone who normally only watches world champs and Olympic competitions (and very few others, just occasionally)...

what should we expect from him?

Is he famous for good course designing or is he more on the controversial side of the job? :mumble:

He is one of those who usually rewards positive, confident riding, which is good. Adding strides can easily get you in trouble on his courses, even if it may be a natural instinct that going slower means safer... Also he gets praised for building horse-friendly courses, where inexperienced horses can build a lot of confidence during just one run (again, if ridden positively).

 

Most of all, he seems to be very unpredictable. His Kentucky course from last week was very different than the one from 2018, so really nobody can tell what he is cooking up for next year. :d He used a lot of terrain in Kentucky, but I wonder if there will be any terrain available at the Tokyo course, which is right by the sea (hopefully some hills will be artificially added if it's completely flat)...

 

Some quotes on his Kentucky course can be read here.

Jumping rankings are also out.

 

Jumping simulation

Group A - :GBR:IRL

Group B - :ESP:AUT

Group C - :ISR:POL

Group F - :EGY:SYR

Group G - :TPE:NZL

Additional - :FRA

 

:MKD and :SRI are climbing steadily! Actually, since two more Group G nations will get a team, I'd be shocked if Sri Lanka doesn't qualify.

 

Full rankings here. :evil:

Preliminary entries are out for Baborowko CCIO4*-L and Saumur CCIO3*-L. At this point we can only gather the participating nations, and not the actual athletes, but that is enough to guess which nations may contest the Olympic qualifiers.

 

Group C (Baborowko) - :BLR:CZE:POL:RUS

Groups F/G (Saumur) - :CHN:HKG:RSA:THA

 

Winner of Group C + Top 2 from Groups F/G will obtain quota places for team eventing.

Still no detailed entries. All I can gather is that Bao Yingfeng (Teseo) and Bianba Ciren (Sultan de la Motte or Tropic d'Heauville) will be on the Chinese team.

Entries are out for the Groups F/G qualification event.

 

:CHN China (4 riders will be chosen)

Bao Yingfeng (Teseo)

Bianba Ciren (Sultan de la Motte or Tropic d'Heauville)

Alex Hua Tian (Don Geniro or PSH Convivial)

Liang Ruiji (Agora de Bordenave or Crackerjack)

Sun Huadong (Lady Chin van't Moerven Z)

 

:HKG Hong Kong

Thomas Heffernan Ho (Jockey Club Charlene OLD or Tayberry)

Annie Ho (Lost in Translation or MJI Belle Bonita)

Patrick Lam (Jockey Club Weronique)

 

:THA Thailand

Arinadtha Chavatanont (Bolleybawn Prince)

Weerapat Pitakanonda (Chateau de Versailles M25)

Korntawat Samran (Luminous)

Supanut Wannakool (Tzar of Her Dreams)

 

Looks like South Africa will not be taking part. Therefore, two nations between :CHN:HKG:THA will qualify an eventing team. :p

 

Although, it's not quite that simple. For starters, at least 3 team members need to complete the event for the nation to be eligible. 1000+ team penalties will not get you anything.

Well, even one can be enough for individual qualification. :d
