Hmm- so she was listed to ride but didn't? Was any reason given?

^^A french tv chanel said she hurt her back and that's why she wasn't competing. But I think no one really believed

If the rumors are true, I'd bet that she doesn't return to riding.

I've thought for a long time that she was waiting for a good excuse to give it up.

I don't know. If she's suffered a serious back injury she won't be as active, and that could explain the apparent increase in weight that recent photographs seem to evidence.

^^ You're right. If she has a serious injury, she probably stoped her intense training and gaining weight is a normal consequence. And some people just have more tendency to gain fat in their bellies than others. I know because I'm one of those people. We'll have to wait and see.

But, I agree with HRHermione. If she's indeed pregnant, I think she won't come back to riding. It's the perfect timing to quit.

I don't get the impression that Charlotte is ever really in serious training, but I could be wrong.

And I actually meant not just the pregnancy rumor, but the injury rumor. I've thought for a long time that she must be tired of riding and failing to do well over and over again, and I've expected her to look for a graceful way to bow out

To come to Charlotte's defense, some people just do get back injuries faster than most. A friend of mine has issues with her back and rarely jumps due to that reason.

Who has ever seen a back injury incurred from jumping horses cause abdominal bloat?

Maybe not abdominal bloat, but I speak from experience when I say that severe back pain can restrict your movement significantly, and that can, in turn, lead to an increase in girth because of non-use of abdominal muscles. But it would have to be over a period of time.

Well, having seen those most recent photos of Charlotte out shopping carrying what appear to be quite heavy bags, I have changed my mind. If she had a really bad back she wouldn't be carrying heavy bags, so there must be some other reason for her increasing girth.

Yep. :(

And Charlotte proves all her detractors right, unfortunately...

I guess we'd have to wait for an official announcement or until she's really showing. But if she really is pregnant, Congratulations to her & Gad!

Yup- and if its true, I can't see her ever competing again. It's just too good a reason to walk away and I think she's been looking for one

I wonder what she is going to do with her horses now that she is pregnant...will she totally quit and sell them? Or will she keep them and ride occasionally after the child is born?
Al in al I think it is a good decision for her to stay away from competitions...in my opinion she is just not talented enough for the high sport...(unlike Jessica Springsteen or Georgina Bloomberg for example; Charlotte was always doing the whole horse and competition thing half-hearted... It is good for her that she is now focussing on a new "project"...;-)

How many horses typically does a competitor have in the sport that Charlotte participates in?
