Tomorrow's Individual Competition Final, is the last day of competition for the equestrian events, so today was the last training session for the riders. It's hard to believe they've only been riding these horses since 14 August. Watching them now it's as though they've been together for much longer. Some combinations have really stood out from the start and others have taken a little longer to get to know each other, but everyone at the equestrian venue have watched with pleasure as they've bonded and improved every day.
Guilherme Foroni (BRA) and his horse, The Hec Man, have proved to be a brilliant partnership, with a glorious clear in round 1 of the Individual Comp Juan Diego Saenz Morel (GUA) and Little Plains are getting on perfectly, but even great combinations have bad luck and yesterday it was the last fence for this handsome pair Timur Patarov (KAZ) and Catham Park Rosie are proving to be a very harmonious team
Whatever happens tomorrow, in what promises to be a nail biting finale to the equestrian competitions, we are sure the riders will go home with lasting memories, of meeting a strange horse from down under and sharing an unforgettable 11 days in pursuit of Olympic gold.
We hope that regardless of tomorrow's results, all riders will have met some lasting friends (equine and human!), had amazing experiences and learnt new skills during their time here in Singapore, as part of the history making first ever Youth Olympic Games.

Gorgeous girls, Samantha McIntosh (RSA) and Little Miss Sunshine, so far have a perfect record here in Singapore.
