But what grace under pressure! I felt so bad when his horse first exploded but then he just kept going and going. And David sat there so calmly it seemed and just rode it out. The best part was when he gave his horse a pat on the neck after leaving the arena. What a lovely horseman he is!
I can tell you this from experience, but if he hadn't behaved that way, Robert Dover would have torn him a few new places to poop from and then told him he never wanted to see him again. Robert Dover, even when on crutches, is a very very scary man.
Sucks also because now their team is out (due to new 3 man teams), and I think didn't an eventer fall too so their eventing team was eliminated as well??? Maybe SJ will go better for Canada!!
I'm just looking up scores right now...
Wow the US is in 5th place!! And overall I think the scores are quite low. Too bad Calecto V (His sire is Rowan's grandsire) only got a 70% - I will have to watch the replay! But good on GBR and good on Germany!!!! With almost no big names and they are in Silver position - we'll see how the special goes in a few days!!
