^They've done it with a few things, not just the horses. It's really lame, to take entire events and put them beyond the reach of most. And especially with something like show jumping, where we actually have medal chances. Eric Lamaze is ranked 3rd in the world right now, and is sitting on a horse that rivals Big Ben.
I'm wishing to be in the US right now so that I could watch the NBC streams - if they work as planned, it really puts everyone else to shame.
