In tribute to all you deprived ENers who’ve been getting up at ungodly hours to watch the Boekelo live stream, I salute you. And I want to share with you this photo I took on cross country yesterday of your spirit animal, a giant inflatable coffee cup. Cheers!
Speaking of which, we’re all looking forward to today’s show jumping finale. Our three American ladies — Lauren Kieffer and Meadowbrook’s Scarlett (2nd place, 44.5), Ellie MacPhail and RF Eloquence (22nd, 65.4) and Tamie Smith and Dempsey (34th, 75.50) – all go on the other side of the lunch break; the competition resumes at 2 p.m. (8 a.m. EST).
With just a sliver of a point wedged between leader Stephanie Böhe and Haytom of Germany and our girl Lauren, less than a rail among the top five, and a team competition underway, it should be a thrilling finale. So get on up, splash some coffee on your face, and go watch!

Video: There are some people wandering around Boekelo this morning who need coffee even more than I do. On my way leaving the venue last night I took a detour through the post cross country afterparty, which was in the process of careening out of control. You can’t tell from the video, but the dancing woman is actually humping my suitcase, in which I carry my laptop and camera.
Only at Boekelo! Brace yourself:
