Quite obvious.. She made one faults with GI Joe, two with Tintero. They don't stand for points but for the fauls you made.
Every faul you make are 2 points on your match statistic added. And it's the point that you don't make any.
The fact she was faster with Tintero doesn't hold any point as she made one mistake more with him. Means 4 beatingpoints. GI Joe only made one mistake, means 2 beatingpoints.

It's very hard to explain in English.

^That's a perfect explanation. I wondered if they were faults instead of points, but I was confused because the column is labeled "pts" but I suppose faults are depicted as points on the results. Thank you.

Quite, but not totally exact. Every time you knock over a pole you get 4 points. That means that with Tintero she knocked over 1 obstacle.
With GIJoe she made no faults, and didn't knock over any pole. That would had given her a clean 0 points result but she was penalised because she was a bit too slow and got 2 penalty points.

I made a correction below. I noticed in yesterday's results from Villeneuve that gI Joe's owner is listed as Stal Tops, the stables owned by Jan Tops in Valkenswaard. Tintero's owner is simply on there as "Casiraghi." He must the horse Char purchased at last year's Fences. I figured that must be Tintero or Troy, or both.

You're completely right.

This "Queen International" event, as Bruno Press caption it, must have been the Villeneuve Loubet competition that Charlotte has been in for the last two weeks. She certainly competed on the day of 27 Feb. She competed with GI Joe on the Mardarick arena and in the results it says they didn't finish. You can see more results here: Villeneuve Loubet Tour Week 1 | Horse timing
We've been chatting a little bit about this event in Char's equestrian thread.

Poor Tintero. He can't compete with GI Joe, who must be a great sport horse to be adopted by Jan Tops. I'm a sucker for the underdogs myself. Tintero is the Little Engine That Could!!!!

And I am a sucker for the dark colored horses. GI Joe qualifies.

P Caroline reminds me a little of her mother at the same age with those glasses she wears - it seems to me she is enjoying been her own woman again when in public a chic confidence that only P Caroline has, which I hope she can maintain.

As a little enlightenment: The competition is not called "Queen International
competition"! Queen International is the agency that originally offers the
pictures and brunopress named that source.

Princess Alexandra was there as well, supporting her big sister

Picture 5 looks as if could actually be Char (of course we know it's Princess Caroline, but speaks to her youthful, playful looks).

Talking Glistening Seas

A wonderful sense of humor seems to be a family trait!!!

however Caroline is very fortunate as with Stephanie too they have a timelessness to their looks they will look wonderful at any age.

You prefer them "tall, dark, and handsome," do you?

Yes. ;D I am a big supporter of GI Joe.. White horses are only beautiful when they are around the age of 4-5. They still are when they're older, just a crime to get them clean after a day in the paddock.

^Well, yesterday Charlotte and GI Joe, I would say, triumphed. They did very well, ranked at #6 and had good times and no faults. But that is no surprise. Joey knows how to rock it!! They took a little bit of prize too. See results

She was supposed to jump with her horse Troy but retired.

Tintero is totally the Little Engine That Could. I love him. But he's not "good enough" (or "too white") for The Empress! He's not the champion GI Joe who gets to train at Stal Trops!
(I'm teasing you, Empress Merel)

Trops? Tops you mean. I just dislike white horses. They don't do the same for me as black or darker horses. *swoons* Moorland's Totilas and Olympic Ferro.. *just died of all that beauty*
Charlotte should have bought Okidoki from Albert Zoer. Now Okidoki belongs to some Swiss dude.


But he would be too much to handle for Charlotte. Aswell as for Athina. But man, how I love that horse. Full of energy and force in his jump.
