Pretty Ponies

Today is stadium at Rolex which is, of course, the final phase in a 3 Day Event. William Fox-Pitt is in the lead with his super talented horse, Bay My Hero, after a clean go yesterday. Finishing on one's dressage score is always a feather in one's cap. To finish 1st on one's dressage score is the only proper way to win Rolex.

And William is very, very proper.

Obviously, he's a Brit, and it would be excellent to see an American win our premier event, but among the horse set, Brits are like favorite cousins. We don't mind losing to them, they're family.

We hate losing to the Germans.
