Some of you may have already seen this (I stole it off Eventing Nation), but it's just too good not to share! This is Exponential at the Head of the Lake on the WEG cross-country course.


No wonder eventers drink so much. ;-)

En Fuego!!

Whhheeeeeeeeee!! I just spent the past several hours glued to the TV gobbling up every second of NBC's WEG coverage (as I'm sure most of you did, too!). I was thrilled to see so much Eventing coverage, and especially happy to see "The Woff" as commentator. Awesome! I do have to admit, though, that I completely zoned out for the Reining portion, which should be renamed Competition For Fat Guys. ;-) Yup, we English-riding girls can be total snots sometimes.

Unfortunately, the Dressage Freestyle ride that everyone is buzzing about was not shown on NBC's coverage. You have GOT to see this -- Juan Manuel Munoz Diaz and his Iberian horse Fuego XIII laid down an incredible, inspiring performance. They didn't medal, but they definitely captured the hearts of thousands.

One-handed one-tempis -- what?!! They more than deserved the thundering standing ovation they received. Brilliant!!!
