I sent you a PM with all the links you need (I hope!). For anyone else, if you jump on the the Global Champions Tour website, and click on the "GCT Live" button, you'll be directed to the page with the live stream. The next event starts Thursday, July 22 at 4PM in Chantilly, France.

Americans can watch live on the GCT website also; most of the time.

I have a question for riders. How long do they let the trainers go over the course with the riders? I can't believe that would be allowed at the 5 star level. Then agaiin, maybe it is. Golfers get help from their caddies. I noticed Thierry is always going over the course with Charlotte.

Anyway, it's not a certainty, or a fact, but that's my hunch.
Ohh!! If thats true im so jealous of her !!
Standing next to a man like that..! I don't continue..
Where did you saw him! What an eye you have!

I don't think she needs to stop. She obviously has the potential to do well--or rather the horses have the potential to do so. I think she just needs to spend a little more time concentrating on working better WITH her horse. From what I've gathered from the people who know about these things, coordination is key.

I think it's delayed on tv. The results are posted for round 2 and the jump-off on the GCT website.

I saw why Charlotte missed the fence on her 4th place competition. She had to ride downhill before the fence. What a sneaky course design. It's on the GCT gallery but you have to skim your mouse over the boxes to find her.

I think she performed best on the hardest course, the special mix one on Friday. Now that was a sneaky tricky course. At least it looked hard as heck to my untrained eyes, and it kicked most of the riders' butts! so many of them took like 15-20 faults.

yeah, the GCT video archive has the one she did thursday where she retired.
Also you can do a search for "Casiraghi" and it pulls up all the vids for her.

I love those pics, Sugarbaby318 - I know when I'm finished riding, I look like a sweaty mess; I love how Charlotte looks like she simply "slept in" :)

^Yeah. That's nice. Tintero and her just go together. A match made in heaven, as they say. Yin and yang. OK, I guess you get the picture.

I miss Troy but I'm glad she's not riding him. It's best for both Troy and Charlotte to be far away from each other. I hope he gets a better rider. He should be with that guy who rode him before he, Was it Leon Thyssen? they seemed great together. Troy was much better, more comfortable with him,I think.

FanofMonaco, about the trainers: I know the amateurs usually walk around the course with their trainers before the event to count the steps between the jumps. they take big strikes as if a horse so they can see about how many steps for the horse. But as for the pro's, probably they do it too with the trainers, but maybe a lot of times they do it by themselves because they are more experienced and don't need so much 'training.' I have seen Doda and Athina walk it together and do it by themselves. I've also seen them do it with their trainer, Bonneau. And I've noticed Edwina walking it with her trainer too (I guess that's Big Jan),but also sometimes just by herself. I don't know that there is any rule for it. I don't know if this helps you much.

From Estoril: Carlota Casiraghi compite en el Global Champion Tour de Estoril

Now we can look forward to GCT Chantilly in a fortnight.... from Friday 23 July through Sunday, 25 July. Chantilly is like the capital of France's horse country. They even have an equestrian museum. Chantilly is 45 km from Paris by car, 25 km by train.

More info.:

* Jumping Chantilly

I just watched Charlotte in Chantilly. It was ...... quite rough. She competed with Troy and was eliminated because of 2 jump refusals.

But there is hope for Charlotte. She goes up with Tintero over the 1m35 jumps, next round. I am watching it too.

The views of the Chantilly palace are fabulous.

*Edit*
Charlotte and Tintero did it. Just finished. They are Rank 8, with 14 faults. It's not over, so this is probably not their final rank, of course. We'll see what the other riders do.... I didn't see all the faults because the stream kept stalling. the first fault she took was a knocked obstacle, and it earned her the first four points. There were other penalty points for touching the bar.

Charlotte finished 16/18 on Tintero at 1.35 meters. A tough day, a tough course. Only 3 riders had clean rides and 5 more had 4 faults. Hopefully she will do better tomorrow.

I saw Valentine was competing in 1 of the young horse competitions. She didn't compete in June at all, per FEI site, so I wonder if her horse is injured.

Charlotte's Schedule - Day 3, GCT Chantilly 2010

Global Champions Tour, Chantilly
Saturday, 24 July 2010 (last day)
Day 3

* Class 14, Prix Volkswagen @ 0900 (will jump Tintero over 1m35) RANK 7. 0 FAULTS. TIME: 71.06. 240 euros. It was great how they played the Superman music afterwards while the prize riders did their victory lap. LOL

* Class 16, Prix Volkswagen @ 1045 (will jump Troy over 1m25) ELIMINATED

Her friend Olivia de Rothschild (we saw her in St Tropez/Monaco recently; she wore the beautiful skirt and looked 'removed' from the group) will go in the 1m15 (Class 15) at 1015, between Char's events.

Valentine Pozzo di Borgo will go in the Class 7, 1m40 (special mix) at 1245. It's a 2* Table A.

Troy was eliminated at 1.15m. It's too bad about him. He just doesn't want to jump period. She must be contractually obligated to ride him for the entire season. It's hard on both of them.

Sunday is the last day of competition at Chantilly. The GCT site didn't originally show Sunday.
