PURE PEOPLE: Charlotte Casiraghi : Glamour au naturel, et même en plein jumping
The article made me smile because as always they introduce Charlotte as an accomplished rider: "[Charlotte] is crazy about horse riding and she trains hard to be the best".

Charlotte is competing in Fontainebleau this week-end. She is doing so bad I'm not going to write down her scores. It's a 2* event, 1.25-1.35m. Valentine and Ekaterina are also there. Next week is the GCT in Monte Carlo. Too bad Valentine doesn't get to go to Monte Carlo.

She needs to make a decision soon: commit or quit. This isn't good for her safety or her horses.

Like I've said previously, I think soon she'll quit.

We don´t know if she´s not commited or how much time she dedicates to this. She probably "not good". I think she should have followed with the University career.

No, we can deduce pretty easily at this point that she's not committed. People who work hard at riding improve.

Not everyone can be an Olympian, but if she was training she'd at least be able to get her horses through the course without being eliminated half the time.

I know nothing about horse riding, but, as any other sport, i imagine it needs lots of hard work. I wonder what makes Charlotte insist in competing if, has you guys say, she doesn't commit herself and always get such bad results... If she doesn't feel like working hard, if the commitment needed is too much for her, why not simply admitt it???

Maybe that contract with Gucci? Probably she thought that following this career would open other doors.

It's not that she doesn't get to go. She has contacts enough to get an invitation. It's more that she takes her jumping career seriously and she doesn't fool around that way.

Maybe it`s the contract, maybe she just like to do it. It`s the most important thing in sport - to participate, not to win.

We usually agree, Hermione, but this time I don't agree with you, sorry!

I know quite a few dedicated and pasionated people who just have no talent.
People who really care about horses and train most days after a long working-day at the office and they just have no talent.
Some of them lack courage, others are stiff, or lack sensitivity... they keep on trying and they just have no capacities. but they love horses and work hard.

Of course, everybody can ride a 0'80 cm. course, with an old well trained horse. And that's what most of those talentless riders do. Thet know they can't go higher and they stay at that level and they enjoy it nevertheless, because they love riding.

The problem with Charlotte is that she persist on jumping heights that are obviously above her capacities.

I only saw her 1st course in Cannes. She didn't do that bad, really, she took all the jumps more or less correctly.
But God, does she have a hard hand!
Carry was fighting her the whole time, he was so obviously in pain and unconfortable!
I don't know how her eliminations happened, I didn't see the videos. But probably Madison is nor willing to put up with that kind of hard and stiff rider.

Maybe, if you play football. When your mate is a sensitive living being your first concern should be not to hurt him.

Thierry Rozier and Jessica Springsteen (Bruce's daughter) are listed as riding in the 5* group beginning tomorrow in Monaco. I wonder if Thierry will be riding one of Charlotte's horses.

Fan of M, if you are disappointed in Charlotte's riding wait until you see the Springsteen girl. The father got into a huge lawsuit when they had agreed to buy Pavarotti. The kid then flipped the horse, and they refused to close the sale. Subsequently it did amazingly well.

She has been riding well. She is currently listed 269 in the world. Georgina Bloomberg, Mayor of New York's daughter, had also been doing well until she had a bad fall a year ago. I haven't seen anything on her since. I hope she is doing okay.

Charlotte did a little better today. She came in 22/38 with no faults on Carrie Duff 2 and 34/38 with 5 faults on Costa Virgio. Both were at 1* 1.25m. Electra Niarchos came in 1 and 2nd in the 1.15. Tonight, Thierry is riding Tintero at the 5* 1.45m event. I am happy to see Thierry riding Tintero. He was being wasted. Maybe he should ride Troy also.

I know she started writing a teen series about riding- it's called "The A Circuit". Perhaps she's been focused on that.

Indeed, how true. One of my dear friends has had such a loving family, and it shows. Thank you, Nadine.

Georgina is fine and competing on the circuit. Lake Placid NY at the moment. She had quite a few at Old Salem last month.

And having read the book, I can tell you it's so poorly written as to make 50 shades of grey look like shakespeare...and it has an equal amount of porn. No way would I let my daughter read it. Mayor Bloomberg stopped speakiung to her for a while because of it.
