I'm starting this thread so we can post news and events of these disciplines. Feel free to post when you have info!

I'll be posting updates on Burghley's Horse Trials in England, where the USA have the top 2 spots after dressage. Originally I posted it on the Olympic thread, so here are the top ten after dressage

Sinead and Tate in first place after dressage--their dressage "wasn't good enough" to make the Olympic team.  Good luck tomorrow in CC. 

And Arthur in second--an alternate for the Olympics.  Good luck to them and for the others from the USA tomorrow.

I know! people will be second guessing themselves now....Hopefully Arthur will be consistent throughout this event, and Sinead and Tate, I know they'll do well just to show the world they ARE elite athletes!

Sinead and Tate gave it their all today, but I guess first place jitters got to them, they had 3 rails down and finished in 2nd, but what an awesome event for them!!! Congrats to Sinead and Tate!! Allison and Arthur finished 6th. :-)

It is very exciting to be following these guys. I have been working on cantering during my last 2 lessons...I am riding a wonderfully patient quarter/paint...who has been putting up with beginning riders for years. Gave him a bath and the full treatment after our lesson and some carrots too.  Still working on balance etc. before going back to the Holsteiner I was having trouble keeping moving etc.   :0)

And not so WOOHOO, Heartbreak Hill (who on your link is listed as "Retired XC") was euthanized following following a breakdown on the course.  I can't help but wonder the status of the other 15 that are listed as "Retired XC".

I hadn't read anything about the horses on xcountry.....there are some that have falls and breakdowns, but they are usually listed in an article....I will go back to the Horse and Hound, and check to see if anymore had injuries.......been at work all day, so I'm just catching up.......

If you look at the rankings in the link you listed, it lists the DQ after XC (presumably 3 refusals, or went off the prescribed course) and the retired XC (presumably breakdown or injury) at the very end of the standings.  I don't know how they would list if anybody just gave up (without injury) partway through the XC, but I don't think that happens much.

Many DO give up halfway thru, if their horse is just not right (like the warm-up for the track), horse just not listening, or the rider knows the horse will not be able to handle the rest of the course, which could be something as little as a certain type of jump they won't jump....they never list an injury, nor info on vanning off or euthing on the results list, that will be done in a written article or as  condolences to owner/rider of said horse..
