    CHIO Aachen is being held this week.
     
    Will Coleman won the eventing aboard Off the Record. They also helped Team USA to the second place finish, just 0.3 penalties behind Gee Bee.
     
    Sure, not the strongest Aachen (usually it's held in July), but this is a pretty significant result for the USA. Easily the biggest success in a very, very long time (10+ years) for this once powerhouse of a nation...

    Isabell Werth has announced she plans to retire after Paris.
     
    Should she win one gold medal there, she would become the 6th most decorated Olympian of all time.
     
    And with two golds, she would potentially climb to 3rd all-time, behind Phelps and Latynina...

    Well, now we know why Belarus declined their Tokyo qualification in dressage.

    Olga Safronova is anti-Lukashenko, so the state-sponsored veterinarians deemed her horse unfit for Tokyo and thus ended her dream. She has defected to Poland since.

    On the sidenote, I stumbled onto this today which finally confirms beyond any doubt that it was a simple, dumb mistake which prevented a Slovak equestrian debut in Tokyo.

    But... Floretto appears to be his second iron for Paris, and quite a promising one so far... It's already officially listed as Slovak-owned so no worries there.

    Well, the judges got the podium right this time. Gold for von Bredow-Werndl, silver for Werth, but bronze for Dufour this time in the special. Doesn't make up for Tokyo though. Especially since Dufour lost the silver on the final centerline.
     
    But then again, Bohemian is a sensitive horse so I guess we will have to get used to these blips.

    Germany gold, Gee Bee silver, Denmark bronze. GB getting overscored again and again, but nothing new here. I guess that lottery funding must be going straight into judges pockets. Hughes was awarded 74% for a sloppy test worth of maybe 69%.
     
    Dufour dropped the silver for Denmark on her own though (spook coming out of pirouette), much like she did at Rotterdam 2019 (and possibly in Tokyo too...). Every time it happened on that first pirouette. And on two different horses. Unbelieveable.
     
    Sweden got 4th. Nilshagen was severely underscored.
     
    But the real stars are the "B" nations for whom this event was basically staged... Finland had three riders scoring over 70%! Crazy. Usually they are happy to have one breaking this psychological barrier, but this time they collectively stepped up to the team total of 218% and 6th place. They also have three riders advancing to the Special (Top 30), which is unheard of.
     
    Wagner outscored two (!) Dutch team riders with 73%.
     
    Aniko Losonczy 29th with 70.046%. And she even came back from a large error mid-test, so good on her. She has qualified for the next round which is massive for Hungary. @Vektor
     
    Bugan got 50th. Improved his score from Rotterdam, but dropped two places. Glinka and Vanagaite debuted their respective nations finishing 57th and 58th, respectively.

    Too bad his horse had an off day in Tokyo (spooked at a camera person).
     
    Finland is having a nuts championships across the board. Their team result will smash their usual placing (12th-14th).

    So four judges saw NED closely winning while the fifth one, from GBR, scored in total 231.7-223.2  for GBR  In old-style boxing robberies at least there needed to be a few corrupted judges agreeing on the outcome.

    Yes, because the constant adding of events and athletes has made it impossible to host only in a classical winter resort. You can't have only Cortina d'Ampezzo and it's nearby towns hosting, you have to have half of Northern Italy in there. This is why no one wants to host anymore, or if they do, they want it spread in 15 other places across the whole country.
