I'm impressed. She beat the heck out of Athina in that one.
7th is a good finish for events like this, especially since she hasn't been showing in the last couple years. The fence height appear to be 4'7" - 5'3" for her division. This is a good height. She has a great horse!! Not to take anything away from Charlotte, but my guess is Athina was riding a green horse. Charlotte's horse looks very experienced.

Weird things: Charlotte is always wearing her ugly (I hate those cheap looking transparent chin straps) old fashioned helmet, and... have you noticed the weird way she holds the reins???
She certainly has very peculiar riding habits
It's weird because I notice on the results Athina rode "Welcome du Petit Vivier" (a bay) and Uceline, who is said to be "brown" gelding. But then in the pics she is on a white-grey horse. I haven't figured out who is this horse in the pics. I thought maybe Athina was just overconfident in the 1m15, but your explanation is more sensible.
There's one pic of Char from the gala. I added it here

Any explanation I can think of is there is a mistake in the start list. Because the horse in the pics is obviously gray.

Anyway, I don't know if you know that you can follow the competitions live here:
Global Champions Tour

Charlotte and Athina are showing at 11'30.

Oh yes I have been following there, thanks. Also Oxer Sport has a channel at youtube and they added a really exciting promo video for the event. I don't know, some of you might like it I got really excited when I saw it, and now I'm quite sad it is over today. I love their facility, so beautiful and eco friendly and ultra modern. I think this event was GREAT for Valencia! Imagine how it stimulated their local economy! Well, here is the link for that video:



Oh BTW, well it's nothing new, but Charlotte is beautiful at the gala. Her legs .... !!!!

I wish we had access in the US to view the competitions - I hope Charlotte continues to do well, and continues to advance.

That is what I mentioned earlier. Althina is riding a relatively green horse. 1.15 translates to 3'9" or level 4 in the US. (level 8 is the highest before you get to the Grand Prix level) This is a level for young horses or inexperienced horses or riders. Charlotte's form indicates that she is not that secure at that height. I'm sure she will improve over the course of the season. Athina spends most of her time riding and you can see the difference in her form.

It's interesting that she decided to ride again after being a bit of a jetsetter for the past couple years.

So I still stand by part of my statement that she could go to NYU, but I have no clue who is attending there, maybe it is Andrea and I got confused.
Christian Hannover attended NYU.
