I'm watching the replay right now, but I have to say I am not happy that some of these riders are carrying sticks.
Haven't seen any of them use it on their horse yet (thank god); the ones who should be getting a few whacks are the riders who are shameful enough to think their riding is good enough to jump anything more than crossrails.
Beautiful horses, however, and so many I want myself
ETA: That flip by the Korean was SCARY. But, you could see it coming a mile away.
The horse was already freaked out by the noise, crowd, and venue. But I believe the Korean's chokehold on the reins pushed it over the edge and caused the flip.
And good lord, somebody shut that crying baby up!

Are these the same group of now "ruined" horses that the women will have to ride tomorrow? Thankfully, the women are usually better, but not fair if they have to ride the same horses the men just crashed around and jerked their faces off.
