fair-winds-and-all-i-see: Happy horse, happy rider. Our London 2012 gold medalist and her amazing horse. I love the story of Charlotte and Valegro. Carl Hester is a champion, too. He took Charlotte under his wing and let her ride his horse to victory. He said he knew Valegro could win a gold medal. He knew Charlotte would be the rider to get it. She has said she owes everything to him. What a great team.

The most interesting thing about the Countess of Wessex (Edward's wife) and Zara Phillips (Princess Anne's daughter) outfits ould be their hats. Zara wore a hat designed by Karen Henriksen, Sophie one from Jane Taylor. Zara was a surprise show, since it was reported she wouldn't be able to make it as she chases a spot on the British Olympic equestrian team. As for Zara' hubby Mike Tindall, lets just say he was caught in an awkward pose with a soldier's helmet plume framed behind his head.
