You can't just enter. The FEI has to approve your entry to the Olympics for safety's sake. Charlotte is not close to being eligible. She is only riding at CSI 1 and 2*. Olympic level is 5*. As far as I know there are no other riders that would qualify from Monaco. I am sure she will be there as a spectator supporting her friends.

Juliette Maillot was there with Charlotte as well. Been a long time since I've seen the two of them together

Yes, all of this. Thank you for explaining it so well!

Charlotte was eliminated yesterday and today on CarryDuffZ at 2*, 1.35m. She is definitely struggling.

Tom Selleck's daughter and Martina Hingis are a couple of the celebrities there that Americans would recognize.

Thanx Iceflower for the photos....the second foto almosts show a mirror image of her brother Andrea......I also think she is looking older, in that she is now 25 and is now heading towards to her thirties

Yep, i'm not sure either. I've seen Julliette Maillot in some pics, she is blond now. Maybe it's her. I think she competes.
Maybe someone that is more fullfilled in the equestrian area can inform us?

^ I'm pretty sure that's Edwina Alexander. She's pictured talking to caroline in a lot of the pics.

One extract of Charlotte's Madame Figaro Interview is in the link:

Quote:
Je ne dors pas bien avant les compétitions. Comme j'ai un rythme soutenu, que je voyage souvent et que je travaille dans des domaines d'activités différentes, c'est plus dur pour le physique et la concentration. (...) Ce qui me bloque parfois, c'est le stress, la peur de ne pas y arriver..."
According to google, it's:
I do not sleep well before the competition. I like a steady pace, I travel often and I work in areas of different activities, it's harder for the physical and concentration. (...) What I sometimes freezes, the stress, fear not to do it ... "

Charlotte was eliminated again today. I agree with the article that part of her problem is mental. She was jumping some of these courses okay last year. Maybe these eliminations will make it easier for her to change coaches. Sport is 50% mental. Did the article sat she was preparing for the Olympics? That's crazy. I hope she is not being pressured into this by others.

She is not in anyway qualified to appear at the Olympics as anything but a spectator in the stands. She needs to decide if she wants to ride just for pleasure or if she wants to take the time to do the necessary training required to be a competitive rider and perhaps advance through the ranks. Right now she is just damaging good horses and delivering bad results that highlight her lack of training and technique.

I don't sleep well before the competitions.Since I have a fast pace life ,I travel often and I work in different fields, it's harder for my body and mental concentration.
What blocks me sometimes, it's stress, the fear of not achieving...

Well, she says in the interview that she rides 2-3 days and then travels and does other things 3-4 days.
That explains a lot...

I agree TrepStep. That is a hobby, not a career. At least she is being more honest now. But why have 7 horses for a hobby? She would be better off riding 1 or 2 horses 5 times a week than 5 or 7, 2 days a week. Timing is everything in sport.You can't develop a rhythm practising 2 days a week.
