Most likely it was down to the jump-off as to why Charlotte was eliminated. It is a shame though. After going good before.

Troy refuses to jump a lot because he doesn't want to get hurt. Charlotte is still hurting him. It's messed up. Why doesn't she get that she doesn't need to hurt this horse? Troy is a great horse. He knows what to do. If she lets him do it.... Charlotte..... ah!!!

I disagree with you CasiTrio. If Charlotte were hurting her horse she would be kicked out of jumping. He is a 10 year old and they are both still learning. They are not quite in sync together yet. She doesn't have these problems with Tintero. They seemed to understand each other immediately.

What I think CT is getting at (and I agree with her) is that Charlotte and Troy are mismatched and that Charlotte, in her being mismatched with Troy and them not understanding each other, does things that she wouldn't do with Tintero. If you look at some of the photos of Charlotte jumping with Troy, he gets that smiley face look from the bit being pulled to hard. And other times, he'll be cantering and have his head down, another sign that Charlotte is qute probably pulling too hard on the reigns. Every rider has had a horse that is too green or too experienced for them. Troy is Charlotte's one. I am of the opinion that Troy is too experienced, too good of a horse, for Charlotte with her current ability. He's a high class horse and with other riders he proves it. He can win competitions, just not with Charlotte IMO. And she seems a little out of her depth with Troy. Even her position when riding Troy is different, less secure. I kind of worry she's going to fall sometimes when I see pictures of her and Troy, particularly looking at her leg position. I think Charlotte should stick to Tintero. They have a good bond and understand each other and what they want out of each other. She's always seemed far more comfortable with him.

In pic # 2, I really like how Charlotte touches the horse. She loves this animal.

this it is not a shame, just a bad luck. I feel sorry for her.

Wait, what? I didn't mean shame as in "Oh, that's embarrassing" and that she should feel shameful but shame as in "Oh, that sucks!" and like you said, bad luck. I don't understand what you mean.

Totally agree. Tintero is her match. I wish she would give Troy to Jan Tops or A&D, where he can be with his equals and not be confused and scared to act because he will be hurt by her overuse of the bit. The pics are great. Naturally, I like seeing Athina there with Viviane and Viviane's brother, Fernando, and on Fernando's lap, some kid I don't know, perhaps the kid of Bernardo Alves.

No, the other pics were from June 12, the third day. The one with
Athina Onassis is from yesterday, June 13.

I also liked to see those pics with Charlotte's support team

It's nice to see the boyfriend's partiality. Alex seems very proud and happy for her; for him, she's a champ and that's cool.

Yeah the one with the ribbon had to be from Friday. There were no ribbons on Saturday. I wish we had more pics of Athina, of course.

Oh, but there is sad news about Athina. I wrote about in my blog in the last few entries: Athina Onassis de Miranda. She broke her shoulder in the first week of june, in a 4* competition in Bourg-en-Bresse. She had a successful operation, but the recovery will have her out of competition for three months. She looks good, however, I think she will bounce back easily. Thank goodness she is OK.

So, thanks to the press release Ice just posted over in the Jumping de Monte Carlo thread, we know that Charlotte will be competing with Edwina Alexander for Gucci in the Monaco Pro-Am Cup. And that she's patroness of the show. That's pretty awesome.

^Well.... her family does pretty much "own the show!"

In the program, they misspelled Char's name: Charlotte Casiragui :) The Monte-Carlo people typo'd her name! The niece of the Prince! lol
