Monday News and Notes

WIN: The USEA has launched a new site today called Discover Eventing, which educates eventers and prospective eventers about the sport.  A lot of the content is oriented towards people with little eventing experience who are looking to get into the sport, which makes it a great referral if you have friends who might like to start eventing.
Georgie Spence has withdrawn from Badminton due to an injury sustained in a fall last weekend.
The great Jim Wofford is giving a Rolex XC course walk open to the public 30 minutes after the last dressage ride on Friday.
Ecogold has a Rolex preview featuring the top US riders, with lots of their videos.
The Carrot writes about an interesting situation in show jumping that could apply to eventing, where a rider goes completely overboard beating his horse at a competition.  This situation demonstrates the power of video, and this rider is neither the first nor the last to be caught on youtube doing something idiotic.   From here on out, assume that cameras are always rolling at competitions.  The Carrot provides a good summary of the situation, but it’s important to always remember perspective, and The Carrot’s perspective is anti-FEI.

Universal sports is broadcasting Rolex online for $20 for the whole weekend.
