I bet Zara's olympic competitors were taken aback by the athleticism she displyed so elegantly recently. I also think that they have already visualised their defeat by her due to her ultra-fitness.

She is very elegant and I love her beautiful smile. Definitely shows her royalty with her inner strength as well as outer.

Wow! Look what I've just found!

Zara Phillips: video clips - Horse news and show reports - Horse & Hound

Hover cursor over the you-tube banner: seven micro-thumbs appear. Click on the 2nd one first.

They have very artfully got her complexion and almost got her eyes. Because she is being guarded about what she is saying; her eyes are not fully revealing.

I loved the comment in that Mail article about how Zara couldn't get married till after Peter had, to keep with tradition. Somebody is forgetting that Zara's mother married nearly a decade before her elder brother did.

Well in a good for Zara, poor horse moment, the hot favorite on the american 3 Day team, Theodore O'Connor severed all his ligaments and tendons in his right hind after getting away from his groom and was put down. He was part shetland pony and only 14.1. RIP Teddy.

Please tell me that Theodore O'Connor was a horse and not a rider; with a name like that it isn't obvious.

Yes, Teddy was the horse, or I should say pony as he was only 14.1. I should have clarified especially as the riders (husband/David and wife/Karen are both on the team) last name is O'Connor as well. It's the horseperson's worst nightmare for it to happen right before the games.

I don't expect the horse was too happy about it either.

This evening's TV news had a story about an event that was the Australians last chance to qualify for Olympic selection. The team will be announced next month.

A local newspaper had a story recently about one of them sourced from The Horse and Hound forums that I use here.

Horse and Hound carried the above story, but it was too sad for me to follow.

I would think so! The CHronicle of The Horse (the horse-y bible in USA) quotes the vet as saying that TOC severed the main artery for the lower limb;which is impossible to repair.

Thank you again giov, I love this quote from Zara, which rather means the Mail and it's source may have got it wrong... again!
Quote:
And one thing she is definitely not being distracted by is wedding plans it seems. Following weekend reports in the UK press that she had become engaged, Zara was emphatic in her dismissal of the possibility. "Listen out everyone. I'm not engaged, I'm not engaged," she repeated to everyone in earshot

My heart goes out to Zara - she must be devastated. What happened to her back-up horse? She had another horse in training because Toytown was getting old.
