    I'd like to know what the spectators were calling to him when he had the stop at the water. From the whistles it seemed they were telling him to give it up. The horse looks hot and tricky, even in the video on his statement, and quite a bit above his riding ability.

    He simply looks like a guy who had the money to buy a fancy horse and then isnt remotely good enough to ride it. Horrid to watch, feel awful for the horse. He deserved to be banned, but not just that - he shouldnt be allowed back at that level until he learns to ride!

    on another forum someone as at the show, and said he had had a distaer round the day before as well and had come out and beaten the horse. They speculated the ban was for that rather than the actual round
