I wouldn't believe what the spanish press say about famous people outside Spain, they usually print the scoops many days later and many times their articles have wrong info; so I would take this with a grain of salt.

I would be skeptical too if they meant she was studying design for a degree, but I can believe she might take a course or two, because maybe she needs, or wants, some learning in fashion design for Ever Manifesto. If she enrolls in some basic courses, that's completely different...... but on the subject of the pictures: She is beautiful and fresh and lovely, with her windblown hair and preppy shirt and sweater. However, I wish that she would not ride without a helmet. She did this for the opening of the GCT and the photo op, of course, but for safety, I wish she would wear the helmet when she sits on a horse.

The jumping is being broadcasted live here:
GCT Live - Global Champions Tour

I was late to see Charlotte but Marta just ended her 1.40 parcours with 0 points.

I found Charlotte's results here: http://www.oxersport.com/es/calendar...a-y-resultados
As usual she is on the botton half of the list 19th of 28 riders. The only famous name with a really good result on that particular show has been José Bono, who's ended second.

More pics here:

She's finally put a black strap to her helmet! It was time!

Charlotte is starting to turn the corner with Troy. She used to be eliminated every time she rode him. She has now finished 3 out of the last 4 times. Today she jumped with him at 1.25 meters and finished with no faults. Her time was just slow. That was her only competition.

The Grimaldis, whoever they are, are doing well and winning prizes.

I bet Gucci is very excited about sponsoring Charlotte all summer. Also, did you notice that some Dutchman is shown as being the owner of Troy ?

I do like the new helmet strap, much better, Trep!

19th place isn't bad...... It's very good that she doesn't have any fault points. This is an improvement. Troy is amazing, truly awesome horse. Very true, Fan, his owner is this Korting person.

GI Joe's owner is Jan Tops. Troy's owner is Korting.

Do you think Charlotte has given up Tintero? I feel bad for poor Tintero. The little engine that could. I hope he's OK, where ever he is, whatever he's doing. I got rather attached to Tintero.

Sorry for the double post...... I found a fourth horse Charlotte has ridden since her return to jumping. He is Barco van de Waterschans, sired by Darco, and owner is listed as being Thierry Rozier. She rode this horse last November in a small competition at Espace Rozier in Bois le Roi.

See here: Charlotte Casiraghi's equine partners on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Korting? What's his first name? I haven't heard of the man before. (Quite a funny last name, it's discount in English)

Jan Tops is truly awesome. He grew up quite near where I live. He is the host of CSI Valkenswaard aswell.

^ And also Jan is the founder of the GCT!

I don't know Korting's first name. It just has his initials. I googled him and he has lots of horses in his stables, but he's always listed the same way.

Here I go with another double post, but I have to ask a question. I just realized..... Charlotte has Troy's mane in braids. Why? I have read that jumping riders don't like to do that because a loose mane = a more relaxed, supple horse. And the more relaxed the horse, the better the performance.
If she just does it for the appearance, because it looks good, that seems pretty stupid to me.

Because it looks neater. In dressage you loose points if your horse is not well braid or well groomed. Don't know if that's the same with jumpers but for a horse it doesn't really matter. An experienced horse can jump easily with and without braids.

And given, I think braided mane on an event or match looks better and neater. Makes the neck and head that much more attractive to look at. Especially for potentional buyers.

I am now wondering if Korting may be a company name. It has 4 initials in front of it.

Even Troy is wearing Gucci. Check out his ear covers. First a new owner and now this. He must have his own talent agent lol. Next he'll be wearing the giant sunglasses.

Tintero was listed as Charlotte's second horse . I was hoping she would try him at 1.40 meters. (She did once at V-L) There was no 1.30 or 1.35 today or Saturday so maybe she will ride him on Sunday. I hope he isn't injured.

Charlotte looks exactly like her mom, at that age, in pic 1 of post 293.

Yeah, rider and horse were decked out to the nines in Gucci. Gucci has been making huge new investments in the equestrian sport. I know they were always very equestrian, but they've triple-timed it, and now investing in Charlotte was a great idea. It's the perfect role for Charlotte. She's an average low-level rider and if she's going to flaunt herself at these top-notch international events, it's perfect for her to be a kind of role model. I'm sure the only people who don't like her new modeling gig are those at Hermes! No more H belt buckle for Charlotte, right? It's kind of too bad because I really loved that belt buckle.

I know this is OT but I just want to answer your question. La Vanguardia has said that Athina is there, but is not participating in the competitions. She is there as Patroness and as Doda's #1 fan.

There was an article in the May 6th edition of The Wall Street Journal about Charlotte and Gucci. It said that Charotte's clothing was designed exclusively for her and would not be sold to the public. Francois Pinault owns 1/2 of Stella McCartney, Gucci and a bunch of other fashion houses.

First the NY Times for EverOpen and now the WSJ. Charlotte is beginning to be recognised by the American press. If she thought she had paparazzi problems before , wait til our paps get over there.

I'm not a rider, but I must say that both she and Troy look more relaxed in these pics than ever. He seems more comfortable with her. Maybe she finally 'got it' and decided to work on easing up on that death grip! Her result from today is indicative of better riding, at any rate.
The jumping riders on the forum will be able to speak more intelligently on this point.

I Pic 5.

Here is a cool picture: Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected

Getty caption calls Troy "AD Troy" as if he's an Athina/Doda horse.

See the Westin hotel (website). It's where Charlotte & Athina and all the GCT people are staying during the weekend in Valencia. :) http://www.starwoodhotels.com/westin...ropertyID=1722
