And she's sitting next to Thierry! She kind of ignored him last year, though he was there, she was so busy laughing like a hyena with Jules and Felix! Well, Philippe Rozier and Doda are competing but not Athina, although obviously she is there. Athina has been just a spectator at the last of Doda's competitions too. I hope she's not injured but just taking a rest.
Thanks for the pics.
P.S. Is it just me or has Juliette totally had a Diva-makeover? She looks hot. She was so pretty always, but she's so grown up and diva-like now.

You can't compete in the new CSI Monaco unless you are a 1m45 jumper (except the invites and the kids). Charlotte rode in the CSI Monaco at Fontvieille up through 2003 because she was an invited rider and representative of the Monaco Equestrian Federation. She could not compete in the 'real' prize events. I have long thought that Charlotte is quite good at amateur level but not quite to be a real World-class rider. Am I wrong?
That's a pretty accurate accounting. She is not an Olympic level rider like Athina. Non the less she is a very nice rider and if she were living in the US and riding the Amateur owner div. I would imagine she would do well.

Juliette Maillot, I just called her Jules for silliness.

But in my honest to goodness strongest opinion, Juliette has always been her best friend. ;-) She looks very different in these pics, however, obviously has had a makeover of some kind, very glam and cool. She was always cute, but now she is just a knockout, don't you think so? Almost but not quite as hot as dear Charley herself, although obviously no one takes the Throne of Beauty from Charley.... hehe.
Well, here are some links, the reason I came back for a few minutes! About the jumping.... from Hello!'s website.
Athina's young family in the spotlight at Monaco horse show *talks about Athina, Doda, Viviane yesterday mostly

Hibou, I agree that Charlotte is a great horse rider and amateur jumper. I didn't mean to diss her skills! hehe
I just meant she only ever did it with modest intentions. I'm sure if she had put her entire focus on it like Athina did/does, like Doda did/does, Charlotte would have been an Olympics-hopeful now. I think I did make some slightly inaccurate statements in my prior post, however, out of carelessness to detail. I meant that Charlotte was junior-class rider, not amateur.
Hibou, or scooter, I think you guys would know the answer to this question: Isn't all of these riders "amateur" since they are not paid, but they actually pay to compete and they compete for money prizes rather than steady payment or endorsements? So that is what "amateur" is, right? Non-professional riders, period, regardless of level?

I've never been to the M-C show, but many of the big european shows (Ireland, Holland, Germany) I have been to have a 'ladies' or amateur division which is usually a 1.10 or 1.20 meter, similar to the Adult or low amateur jumpers here.

Not to worry things can get quite confusing. Basically according to the rules of the US Equine Federation (formerly the Am. Horse Show Assoc) an amateur rider may not accept payment for such things as showing someone else's horse, training or teaching, or being paid in another capacity like secretary or bookkeeper. They may not accept money for photos or endorsements either. Prize money won does not count. Summer camp councilors are exempt and one may accept payment for books and articles written, one may also accept a token of appreciation not to exceed $300. Generally speaking, it has more to do with whether you do it for a living or not. However, also generally speaking, and I will defer to Scooter on the European shows, in the US the fences for amateur jumpers tend to be lower in height and less demanding than the Grand Prix courses which go by Olympic standards. As Scooter pointed out they do have lower levels in Europe as well. It looks like some of the classes at the Monte Carlo show have different levels too. As I said in an earlier post it looks like some of the Olympic level riders are training some of their new horses but we'll have to see who they ride in the Grand Prix classes.

I should add that one may be an amateur and compete at the Grand Prix level like Zara Phillips (Princess Anne's daughter) [although she is an Eventing rider] if one's skills are up to the task.

In Brazil, Doda and Rodrigo Pessoa have endorsements but I think they compete for teams that are sponsored by their endorsers, so it turns out legal and fine, technically. And Team Marionnaud, the team sponsored by Chez Marionnaud perfume company that Charlotte rode for, Valentine also, and the Roziers still do. And before that Charlotte was on the Fortis-sponsored team. Very interesting topic. Yes, so Charlotte competed in juniors, then CSIC, which I forget what the the last 'C' stands for, sometimes she competed in cSIA, I guess that is for "amateur"?
Then CSI-O is something, I forgot.
The highest is CSI-W (world class) isn't it? That's where Pessoa and Miranda belong. Athina was going strong in CSIW all last year and starting off this year too, but now she is out of the game, I guess temporarily, hoping it's not due to an injury!

Well, now, got to get back on topic, don't we?


The official pictures, from the CSI Monte Carlo website.
http://www.monacohorseshow.com/index...onaco_2007.jsp

There not any pictures there yet but the website says on another of their pages, "coming soon". So I am hoping like tomorrow, Sat or Sun, but since Mon. would be the next business day, maybe not til then. Let's hope there is some flexibility are regular work hours at CSI M.C. webmaster control center.

From the Results for today, Friday, 29 June 2007
http://events.horses.nl/2007/monaco/results/results.htm
FEM Prize - Federation Equestrian Monaco, started at 1445

These were national invited riders, junior-level riders (this is how CC used to compete in this event). The winner of the FEM prize money was Monaco's Lavinia Leoni.
Prize CSI Monte Carlo, started at 16:00, 4pm Monaco time, a 1m25 concourse
France's Patrice Planchat took the purse.
1m35, same prize sponsor as previous, started at 1800, 6pm
Patrice Planchat had a good day! She(?) won again! If Patrice is female name, which I think it is, we have some Girl Power that went on today! Woohoo!
KBL Monaco Prize, 1m45, started at 1945, a quarter to eight pm, the first for the day of the major prize events, that is the world-class riders
Gregory Wathelet from Ukraine took the purse.
Prize Mediterranean Network, Group MTN, started at 2200, 10pm
This event was the most difficult of the day. The big potato in the stack, so to speak. Here you can see the concourse blueprint.
Michael Whitaker from great Britain took the purse.
He is a very famous rider.
Tomorrow, Saturday, 30 June 2007, the last day and the big prize events, so don't be square and miss it! Prince Albert will be there, maybe Princess Caroline too (let's hope so!) And of course, diehard fan of CC that I am, may Charlotte Casiraghi grace us with her worshipful, awe-inspiring, amazing, heavenly presence!

Understandable, as the Juliette answer is now very obscured by all my show jumpings jargon and ramble. It's such a fascinating topic. I love learning more about jumpings. I think with hibou, scooter and other jumping riders hanging around, we will learn even more, the 'real deal'. All that I know about it is from years of trying to understand the results tables! I think I am too old now to try it, and maybe I don't want to anyway, because it looks so hard! I read a book about it once and I was amazed at how much you must understand geometry to be really good at it?! Did you know it? I didn't! The objective, apparently, is to make three perfect 45-degree angles: in the approach, the jump, and the landing!! That is the key to a "perfect" jump, apparently! Cool huh? Or maybe it's just me! I am so weird like that....

The jumping is live on TV - Euro Sports. So far I have seen Charlotte with Alex, and Prince Albert with Charlene. Charlotte and Charlene talked while Albert studied the program. So far no pics.


Edit:

There are some new pics on Getty:

Is Charlotte's jacket (in the Getty pics of today) the same that she wore over her dress at the Rose Ball?
I like it a lot. Alex has a 'deer in a headlight' look on his face. I don't think he's very into the horse scene. But obviously, any guy dating Charlotte would put up with it just to be around her.

So what is the official excuse why Caro isn't there? She has always been there, she is obviously not sick. So why her absence?

I was hoping that Caroline would have been attending the wedding of Prince Alexander zu Schaumburg Lippe and bride Nadja Anna Zsoeks in Bueckeburg, Germany today, but so far I have not seen any photos of her if she was there.

She wasn't mentioned explicitly in the German tabloids. If she was there , they would have had a pic of her.

Another gallery from Abaca:

Here is a link to a gallery from WENN

Oh and here is a little article with a video from yesterday:

Monaco Revue -- The celebrity and lifestyle magazine with purpose

Irish eyes were smiling at the end of Le Jumping International de Monte Carlo as Jessica Kurten of the Emerald Isle captured the top spot. Second place went to Dutchman Jeroen Dubbeldam, while two of the British Whitakers, Robert and Michael, took third and fourth places respectively.
