It’s all fun and games until the losers are sent to the glue factory. That’s how we handle things on the American team.

 

On the contrary, eventing is often a second career for the horses that don't make it in horse racing business (especially in the USA)... ;)

That's not the way I'd like the top equestrian level appear in Polish media: Sara Algotsson Ostholt's car got burned on the A1 highway. One horse died, the second is burnt. The driver got posioned wit

Well, on the opposite side of the spectrum, you'll find something like this.  

Thomas Bach will love this.

That would explain why the quality of our art class glue has gone down...

:EGY Nayel Nassar won Masters Tournament in New York :clap: , another great victory for Egyptian riding , btw there's something funny that shows how corrupted sport here in Egypt Nayel wasn't chosen to represent Egypt in last WEG in USA where he's based just because the federation president wanted one his friends' son to participate

If that's what happens to the riders, what happens to the horses?

@Vojthas Some exciting results at the Polish eventing championships (which also served as international 4* event). I imagine this was sort of a selection event for the Polish team for Group C qualifier?

Well, I didn't see any rules of selecting for the qualifier, but for sure the team manager will take these results under consideration. If we qualify Spisak will have a chance for his 5th Olympics - he would be only the 17th Pole to do so in 100-year-old history of Polish Olympic Movement (ok, minus four years as we didn't participate in 1920 Olympics due to war against Soviet Union).

Final session of dressage at Badminton Horse Trials is in progress... Live stream and live scores are available at the respective links.

 

Total British domination, however this looks to be the least international Badminton possibly ever... Nevertheless, team gold for next year is decided.
