Jessica going to the Olympics


Recommended Posts

Thanks. Is the order they jump in random or based on some qualifying criteria? Must be a big advantage in jumping last if all the fast rounds had jumping faults.

Each course has a "maximum allowed" time. If you exceed that you get time faults as described before. So if the max allowed time is 55 seconds, and you take 1:12, you would get 5 FEI time faults while she would have only 4 jumping faults, and she'd beat you. It is the sum of faults for each rider, both jumping and time, that matters.

In my country the jumping is kind of tradition, I saw it frequently on national TV, so part of my upbringing. Loved pacing through the course and sprinting at the end to get under the max allowed time, but I never ever got over the jumping faults. Love a perfect course but for me personally it was always the horse to blame for the faults :D

No way. I thought it was the tottie from the gym. Although she hasn't seen the inside of a gym in a long time whoever she is.

Blimey!

What the hell's she done to you and aramuse?

She's not on show - her daughter is.

You pretty sums up the difference between Patti and Bruce. To quote Mike Appel:

"I mean he’s strong, he stays in shape, he’s disciplined. Underscore the word disciplined because that’s his greatest characteristic, that discipline. It’s endemic to his personality. He cannot be swayed very often off of his disciplines. Whether it be drinking, or whatever undisciplined behavior leads you into, he has disciplines that cover all those possibilities."

Hopefully some kind soul will post Jessica's rides on u tube as im not sure if NZ has show jumpers going and then only the 3 day event will be on free to air tv here 

Back in the day the Olympics would be on all day and we would see other events NZ wasn't necessarily in, but its going to be 2 hours a night

As promised, here I am fresh from the gym.  I've just bench pressed 150 kgs and completed 10k on the treadmill.  Apologies for the pumped and veiny appearance, but I'm a dedicated athlete.  My glutes are rock solid and could crack walnuts, but not yet as it's still sweaty down there from my workout.

You should have put the picture in a spoiler box to avoid getting the ladies over excited.

I put that on a site on the dark web. Amazed that you found it. Nice cropping, btw, as the bottom half is horrific.
