Since liberal in-the-tank NBC is punishing Ann Romney's horse "Rafalco"--doesn't she share ownership with 2 other people?!?--they aren't showing ANY equestrian live this year, unlike previous Olympics, just a stupid 30 second blip here or there. Heck, I saw more of the field in Greenwich on TWC when Jim Cantore was showing off the Greenwich Mean Team display!!! Yeah, they're streaming, but I still like to tivo my Olympics, anyway. Soooo...I'm getting my news elsewhere, and there's Brit show on HRTV that has been at LEAST giving me the placements and an honest appraisal of things, so far. ANYWAY, their observation is that the German horses (ALL 3 Olympics disciplines) are excelling bc the horses are more confident than any other teams. There was a discussion of a jump with lions that had many horses spooked, for instance. It's some food for thought, at least.
