Between dressage rides, we took a quick look at the Head of the Lake - wow! While we were standing around with our mouths open trying to figure out how it was "meant" to be ridden - Karen O'Connor and Mark Phillips came along to take a closer look as well. We couldn't hear what was being said - but the body language was quite entertaining! There seemed to be a bit of debate about the approach to 17A - and to give you an idea of the precision required, when Karen moved her proposed line just one inch, Mark shook his head "no, no" - grabbed her shoulders and moved her back an inch!!! ONE INCH! I hope Karen tells Mandiba how important that inch might be!
At the end of the day, we took a walk down to visit the Man o' War statue - walking towards it, I was totally struck by the sign below. Katchi and I are going to have to have a talk about his issue with getting a nice 12' stride between fences!!!
Tomorrow we'll be going on the Practical Horseman course walk with Jim Wofford, so I hope to post a few videos or at least some entertaining "woff-isms" tomorrow night before the BIG cross country day!!
