My concern is more for the horses she rides than for her. Poor riders can do real damage to the confidence of a good horse and it takes a lot of time & work with a good rider to restore their confidence.

I don't know if it was the same video, but I saw one.
You have to go to the guccimasters site, go to the media library and there you'll find the video.

You can also see Charlotte in the Grand Prix video, delivering the trophies. I'm so glad Pénélope Leprévost won! I love her riding style.

I hope this link works:

I think her intentions are good but maybe she has spread herself too thin in her activities and needs to learn how to say no. Regarding her horses, she is relying on the expertise of Jan Tops and Thierry Rosier. She doesn't have the knowledge to pick out the best horses for herself. I still thinks she needs a new coach. Someone who would be willing to fire her if she didn't tow the line. If she wants to be taken seriously then she needs to go to riding boot camp with no distractions. If not ,she needs to sell most of her horses and continue as a hobby,and call it that. She's not doing herself any favors by pretending to be a pro and falling off her horse every week-end.
I completely agree,horse-riding is a wonderful hobby but if you want to do it professionally you have to practice a lot (just like in every other sport)!
Charlotte is a charming woman and I believe she has only good intentions but it must be quite frustrating to compete without winning some tournaments or noticing that she can´t keep up with the other riders.I wouldn´t like her to stop enjoying the sport or getting unhappy because she can´t live up to the high expectations therefore it would be better if she either decides to just ride for fun or spend more time and efforts to get better and show everyone that she has the strength and determination to win. ....Of course I would prefer to see her competing and win a tournament :-) No matter what she is doing,she is a great figurehead for equestrainism and helps to promote the sport

I´ve watched most of the Gucci masters on Eurosport tv (I have satellite tv),maybe they show it again or have some videos online.
Gucci masters also has a nice webpage: GUCCI MASTERS :: 2 au 4 décembre 2011 :: Paris Nord Villepinte

There was another video that was only on YouTube for a day. It showed Charlotte, Edwina and the 2 Gucci heads back in the stalls. Frieda gave Charlotte and Edwina their costumes and Charlotte said something like, Is there anyone I can find in this place that is willing to wear this and this? She holds up a box named Elvis kit and the blouse she was to wear. She was laughing.It was cute.

Thank you for this description. I regret a lot not having seen it. I guess that Charlotte is very jealous of her privacy, and so is Edwina, which would explain the disappearance of Edwina's wedding pics, and of this video.

Yes, I saw that as well and it was nice to see her turning directly to the camera and address her remarks to it. She was very animated and seemed to enjoy the moment.

Yes, she did and she has a lovely voice. She was really laughing at the situation; it was funny to see her crack up over it. Too bad the video no longer seems to be available.

What I meant Trepstep is, to quote myself, those with money or have parents to pave their way in, a lot of times have an attitude I absolutely detest. I would have to grovel my way in to get such contracts, get such horses (and don't get me wrong, my horse is an absolute good one and love him to death, but he ain't no Hickstead or Totilas) and everything that comes along. And sure, they earned it because being a proper rider is not the easiest thing and having such high expectations must not be so either, but I never see them grovel.
I don't want to compete, yet I ride 5 or 6 times a week. And I want to but also have to. I wanted him so I have to take care of him. That's my responsibility towards him.

I can't with people who have more horses then they have time for or spend time with. But alas, I don't know how it really goes, can only judge by results, interviews and photos ofcourse. But let's be honest here, her results are not good and when she says that she only trains 2-3 times a week? It makes my 'wtf' face come out.

Yes, she has a beautiful voice! And she expresses herself very well - I can only judge her by her french interviews, but she has a very elegant pronounciation, a very rich vocabulary. I wonder what you, english speaker, think about her english pronounciation, because I can't say anything about it.
I would have loved to watch this video, but I wasn't quick enough!!

Charlotte has kind of a French/British accent with a few American pronounced words, but is very easy to understand. She uses alot of words that have the same meaning in French and English but are used slightly differently in each language. I understand what she is saying but she doesn't use the same words that an American would. I may be unfair though. The English speak very different from Americans and she could just be speaking Brit. I would grade her very good. Her mom is flawless with a little bit of a British accent. PA and PS are also flawless but both have American accents. I don't understand French very well but thought Charlotte's pronunciation on the Monaco interview was easy to understand.

From the few words she said in English on YouTube, I thought her voice did have somewhat of a British intonation. It's also low in tone; I hesitate to say "deep" because it's certainly not mannish, but lovely to hear.

She's got a beautiful deep voice! I was very surprised the first time I heard her a couple of years ago, I thought she would sound more childish.

I think it's only natural that her english is nearer to british than american. She probably first started learning english at school, and in european schools we always learn british english, with oxford, cambridge, and BBC material.

And then of course Alex came along! She's been living in london, mixing with british people. It's only natural if she improved her english with Alex, and she speaks the way londoners do.
She's also very probably polished her accent over the last years. I remember reading in some online magazine a few years ago about Charlotte in a fashion show in London and the journalists talked about her nice french accent.

Thank you for these interesting comments. I also read in the past that Charlotte had a french accent. I'm totally convinced, like Trepstep, that living in London with an english made her prononciation improve a lot!
I love listening to her when she speaks french, she's very classy. As Trepstep, I thought that Charlotte's voice was childish, as her aunt Stephanie's one. I was very surprised the first time I heard her speaking!
