We interrupt regularly-scheduled Rolex geekery to say ARE YOU #$@$@$#@ING KIDDING ME WITH THIS.
The ground jury for the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final Grand Prix has denied the protest filed April 25 by Swedish rider Patrik Kittel about flowers around the dressage arena. Some of the flowers were not around the ring for the arena familiarization period. Kittel’s horse, Watermill Scandic HBC, spooked in the first extended trot movement in the Grand Prix test, and Kittel filed an official protest with the Gothenburg show office. Kittel finished 10th in the class.
Seriously. SERIOUSLY?!? He filed a protest because there were some additional flowers around the ring and he can’t keep his horse focused? GROW UP ALREADY.
