    I hope both horse and rider are okay.

    The Australian team seems to be riding well over the course!

    Well...what I see of it anyway when Dad flicks it back to the Olympic coverage from "Aliens"

    Field hockey on here at the moment just serves to show how both Irish teams were from qualifying.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    London's travel network clears first Olympic hurdle

    London's transport network has passed its first big test of the Games: the combination of commuters and Games spectators during Monday morning's rush hour.

    London workers seem to have heeded warnings that extra restrictions and Games Lanes combined with spectator congestion might result in nightmare commutes - and changed their patterns.

    Belarussian rider took a tumble so things were delayed at the cross country, but things appear to be back on track now.

    Well they've taken the rider off to hospital to get checked, but they didn't seem too concerned so I'm guessing it wasn't so bad.

    Now a Canadian rider is down - and the horse - Gin & Juice - is evading capture at the moment!!

    I don't know anything about equestrian events. Are this many falls normal- or is it a really unusual course causing it?

    I'm no expert, but I noticed there were a couple of jumps that almost every horse was having trouble with...

    Three day eventing is one of the most dangerous sport, so lots of falls is not unusual. Conditions are pretty much ideal (not hot).

    Especially the cross country part which is all up and down and sharp turns etc. And yes the conditions are gorgeous as it's sunny but not hot and the ground is not too firm but also not muddy beyond belief - I've seen some Badminton horse trials where it is a mud bath!!

    All there to cheer on Zara Phillips! Wonder if they have their vuvuzelas ready.

    From horses to canoe slalom to badminton. Love the randomness of the Olympics!

    Whee ! He said this is the first time in his career he's seen a shooting event sell out. Good time to have very good outing, then.
