Seen on my TV screen October 2022 during CBS broadcast of FEI: Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final 2022 – Barcelona 29/09 – 02/10/2022 – Barcelona ESP.
Rider, horse, and *groom*!

I was pleased to see that many of the top riders are getting away from the over-bridling that has plagued the jumper ring. There was also a lot more of riders giving the horse liberty to run and jump. You know, they way it is supposed to be. The way we used to do it. Back when we were winning things.
Notice anyone missing?
