    Woop WOOP Australia's scond Have to be pretty **** happy with that effort considering all of the selection dramas we had!! First horse meant to be in the team had a injury a week ago so had to pull out, first reserve came up, horse got an abscess a couple of days ago so had to withdraw, Sam Griffith's is the 2nd reserve and only found out that he'd be riding 2 days before the dressage kicked off!

    Looks like Sam Griffiths has taken a tumble on the XC course.

    Lots of falls X-country. Happy threw a shoe early on hence was sliding all over the place. Looks like a Canadian has come off too and reports of others?
    I feel for those riding the course later on once it's churned up. It's like an ice rink out there! Lets hope all horses and riders get home safely.

    Chris Burton at least had a great round, came through clear and on his dressage score. Chasing the German's tails, come on Aussies! No more falls please!!!!

    I agree there has been far too many falls this time, I think the ground has been too slippy.

    It's certainly slippery out there. Our Aussie rider that just fell, his horse pulled a shoe early on and it slipped around at every fence until it finally slipped and dropped Sam. They'd want to be wearing their studs out there, don't know how many will be riding fast rounds now that its getting so churned up.
