I felt pretty bad for my USA teammate Will Coleman who had to withdraw in the final warm up. Twizzel all of a sudden looked a little uneven and Will decided to pull him out. After spending the last two weeks with Will, I know how devastated he must be. He has put so much into this event, moving to England for 6 weeks, training harder than he ever has before, and the horse is in magnificent form.
I enjoyed a cocktail party at the Burghley House last night with some of the Neville Syndicate members. It is an amazing backdrop to this great event. The Neville syndicate also joined me on a course walk this morning (photo above) as I wheeled the course. It looks to be a long way around over some bloody big fences! I look forward to walking the course this afternoon with my jumping super coach, Phillip Dutton.
I also took the folks from Horse Junkies United on a little course walk and they've got photos and videos on their website - check it out!
Also have a look at some fun facts about Neville!
