Thursday News & Notes Presented by Stable View

It’s the first day of Olympic dressage for the Eventing crowd! Don’t forget to check out our Ultimate Form Guide for the schedule, order of go, information on the new Olympic format, and much much more. Also, with the time differences, and the competition running at weird hours due to the heat in Tokyo, it’s important that you check out our handy-dandy guide to times so you can be near a TV (or at least try to). I’m not sure I have it in me to wake up at 4am to watch dressage…but we shall see. Also, in case you are curious, here is the order of jogs for bright and early this morning.

Fouaad Mirza is the third-ever Indian rider, and first to qualify in 21 years, and he’s competing in Eventing this week. Partnered with his double Asian Games silver medallist Seigneur Medicott (Micky), Fouaad is confident that he can do well for his country due to Micky’s technical precision over the jumps as well as his previous experience with hot weather.
