I know this is off topic but is Athina on the same riding level as Zara Phillips?

No. Zara does 3 day eventing which is dressage, jumping and cross country. She is the equivalent of the Global Champion Tour 5* jumpers. Athina is a show jumper who usually competes at CSI 3 star to 5 star. She is very good, but not as good as her husband or the other Global Champion riders.

Friday night was the Oxersport gala. Charlotte attended (the lipstick pic, etc.) and Athina& Doda. Athina is so pretty lately. She is glowing and I'm hoping it's a baby glow. Wishful thinking? I hope. it would be so sweet. If you want to see Athina at the gala, it's here: De la arena a la alfombra. Las Provincias (you have to click #7)

Charlotte is to compete in the Trofeo Ecuestre magazine prize at 1000. It's a quarter to 8 now Valencia time, right? So a couple of hours..... she's to be the 14th rider to go. The jumps are 1m20 and she will ride Troy again.

^Beautiful, Iceflower! I love her braid.

See Charlotte's Results all Weekend including the latest
Obviously, Saturday was her best day.

I have the live stream playing. They're the doing the last 2*, I believe. I watched Guido Grimaldi, who we don't know, might be a very distant Italian cousin, or no relation at all. He was very sloppy!! I've never seen a rider knock over so many obstacles in one round!

Now Marta going.

I love that video. It must be from yesterday. That was her best performance. Troy showed perfect technique too. He did everything perfectly.

Troy has a good canter. He moves off the ground. Always a treat to see.

"Hipica" by Gucci

Quote:
Hípica «by» Gucci
La nueva línea de ropa técnica de hípica de la firma de lujo italiana encandila a celebridades como Carlota Casiraghi

Hoy gracias a Gucci, el ‘sport chic’ alcanza su máximo apogeo. Y si no, que se lo digan a Carlota Casiraghi, la primera en lucir un conjunto de la nueva línea de ropa técnica de hípica de la firma de lujo italiana, durante el Global Champions Tour que arrancó en Valencia ayer. Y es que Gucci es el nuevo esponsor del equipo de exhibición de saltos del cual forma parte la hija de Carolina de Monaco. Pero hay más. Las prendas y los accesorios que lucirá durante las competiciones, desde Cannes a Rio de Janeiro, pasando por Estoril, han sido especialmente diseñados para ella por la Directora Creativa de la casa, Frida Giannini.
No es de asombrar que esta firma de moda se adentre en el mundo ecuestre de esta manera, ya que desde sus inicios ha utilizado muchos de sus simbolismos. Uno de los detalles emblemáticos de Gucci es la embocadura del caballo, que se utiliza en todo, desde bolsos a mocasines y se ha convertido en una de las señas de identidad de la firma.
It basically explains that Gucci is Charlotte's sponsor.
The first pic is perfect for an ad

I doubt it's from the weekend. It looks like part of an ad campaign, and it looks like it was GI Joe, instead of Troy who was used for this ad.

Nat, thanks for the pics and the article text, but do you by any chance have the link? Or what is the source?

EDIT: I found the link. http://www.abc.es/20100507/vivir-mod...005071339.html

Well, the words "good technique" obviously have a very strange meaning for you them. Charlotte's technique is no good, not even in that video from saturday.
This is what I see, from bad to worse:
-Her hand is hard and the horse is fighting it half the time.
-She has bad balance, and as a consequence she relies too much in the horse mouth in half the jumps and the horse's neck has no enough freedom

And the worst of it all:
-The girls HAS NO LEG. You can percetly see it thanks to that slow motion video. She relies totally on her hands and spurs. At many point you can see how her hands are holding the horse mouth and instead of "putting her leg" (I'm sorry but I don't know the english terms for ecuestrian tecnicisms) she just pecks at him with the spur. She seems unable to use the leg withouth using her spur at the same time. She is all hand-spur-spur-spur-hand. Check the flanks of the horse. He has spur marks at both sides.
This morning Troy stopped in front of one a double jump at the 1'20 show. I saw it life and it was totally Charlotte's fault. She puts herself "before the horse" (again I don't know the english way of saying it in french it would be "avant le cheval". That's dangerous and a rookie mistake. The horse jumped from too far away and didn't properly "fit" between the 1st and 2nd jump. Charlotte endend second to last.
Troy is a wonderful horse and it's him that saves Charlotte' ass 90% of times.

P.S. And why the hell does she hold her reins like that?

Sorry for off-topic, but in the article on Gucci sponsorship, her name is written Carlota.
I've seen her name as Carlota in some other articles, too.
Is it common in Europe that even names are translated to its variation from different languages?

I know very little about equestrian technique, but she´s not pressing her legs against the horse, and that´s wrong.

Jia: in Spain, they translate everything, even names.

In Spain the names of the kings, queens and princes are always translated. It's a convention valid both for old historical queens and kings and modern ones.
We say (I live in france but I am a spaniard) Isabel de Inglaterra, príncipe Carlos, Alberto de Mónaco, Carolina, Estefanía. Guillermo de Holanda, Magdalena de Suecia, etc..
Nobody says Charlotte Casiraghi, she's always been Carlota.
But now that I think of it we never translate Andrea or Pierre. I don't know why, but the are the only ones who keep their original names.

Oh, and this is a little bit off-topic but I just realized: when the spanish press talks about Grace Kelly as an actress, it is always spelled Grace, in english, BUT, when they talk about her as a princess she usually becomes "princesa Gracia de Mónaco".
