Dujardin continues to be as arrogant as ever it seems.

 

Apparently, while in Amsterdam, she met the same steward who eliminated her at last year's European Championships. Only this time they hugged (as you do?). Not only that, but Dujardin also claims that the steward felt bad for eliminating her (for, you know, finding bloody spur marks on her horse). Yeah, I'm sure the steward felt TERRIBLE for doing her job, following the regulations and putting animal welfare first.

 

This is all a very convenient hearsay, ofc. But also very much in line with Dujardin's behaviour over the years...

Actually Nayel Nassar became very popular here in Egypt not because of his equestrian achievements but just because he got engaged to Bill Gates' daughter :d most of websites are talking about who's the Egyptian boy that stole bill gates' daughter heart

:NED Maikel van der Vleuten's Verdi has been retired.

 

This makes him the last medal-winning horse from London 2012 to be retired from top level competition.

It's strange to see so many photos from the Global Dressage Festival with :CRO Croatian flag as a centerpiece. :d

 

Karen Pavicic is very much putting us on the map. :p

At age of 65, :AUS Mary Hanna set the new Australian Grand Prix Freestyle record with 80.145%.

 

In doing so, she became the first rider, not only from Australia, but from the entire Southern hemisphere to break 80%. :cheer:

I've heard and read very little about her conduct, but I was often under the impression that after London, she was a snobish, rude person.

Yeah, you are spot on here. For that reason I have been pretty much avoiding all her interviews for years now, and I stumbled onto this one quite by accident. :d

 

I can remember another one from 2014. She had a total train wreck in Aachen, having made mistake after mistake after mistake. She still scored in mid 70s and finished 7th or something (lesser known rider would have scored 64% for such test). And then in the interview afterwards she said something like: "Nobody expected me to lose." :facepalm::facepalm:
