I'm insanely jealous of Reed Kessler. That kid can ride! Overall I think it's an incredibly solid team. She's been so consistent lately, especially with Cylana. And Beezie and McLain are so cool in competition. And Rich Fellers is having a great few months, so as long as he keeps that streak up, I think we are going to have a heck of an Olympic year in show jumping!

In regards to the Olympics, I LOVE them. I can't get enough of them.. I will watch pretty much any sport they're covering at the moment! It's so exciting, and I can't imagine how proud those athletes must be to represent their countries.

I've been watching most of the GP jumping on The United States Equestrian Federation


Sky my family doesn't share my excitement either, but they know to quieten down when I am watching it online. I was watching the GP yesterday afternoon at Spruce Meadows, it was the final competitor in the jump off and I knocked my tea all over my computer table. My husband got up and came over with paper towels to clean it up for me so I wouldn't miss the round. He's pretty cool for a none horsey guy. :)
Number one item on my bucket list is the Masters at Spruce Meadows. Its only 10 hour drive away. A friend of mine was a groom there last year what an experience.

Also very interested in who Lamaze is taking.

Ian Millar is riding; wonder if his kids are as well? What a superb team that would be. :)

Australia's eventing team is Andrew Hoy on Rutherglen, Chris Burton on Holstein Park Leilani, Clayton Fredericks on Bendigo, Lucinda Fredericks on Flying Finish and Shane Rose on Taurus.

Our dressage team is Lyndal Oatley and Sandro Boy, Kristy Oatley and Clive and
Mary Hanna and Sancette.

I'm so keen to watch the Olympics, especially our eventing team. I'm so glad Andrew Hoy's back on it - he's been my favourite rider ever since I was little. I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time on campus at Uni so I can use the internet to watch it live online.

I'm interested to see how Reed Kessler does. If i'm correct, at 17, she's the youngest rider in history on the US team.
