7/28/2008 3:48:27 PM

115 degree heat, high humidity, possible typhoons - human's choose to compete horses have no choice

7/28/2008 3:15:03 PM

I am more impressed by those who chose not to participate due to health risks for their horses.

7/28/2008 2:24:46 PM

my God Bless you all & have a safe & successful trip.

7/24/2008 11:07:38 PM

I just hope we don't have to compete w/other sports, which cuts into quality time for the horses.

7/24/2008 9:58:07 PM

How do we watch on the internet???????????

7/24/2008 9:05:22 PM

Wish I was there! Go get 'em!

7/24/2008 5:32:27 PM

Hoping the coverage will improve. Network coverage of any horse event is usually poor.

7/24/2008 4:59:35 PM

7/24/2008 4:26:22 PM

7/24/2008 3:09:50 PM

I refuse to support the politics involved in the whole Olympic process!

7/24/2008 3:00:51 PM

Television coverage is usually not good for equine events, so why bother! We'll hear about it soon e

7/24/2008 2:55:41 PM

Riders and horses good luck, be safe, make us proud!

7/24/2008 2:32:20 PM

Best wishes for SAFE and successful eventing!

7/24/2008 1:41:59 PM

I can't get NBC on my TV. I would like to see the equestrian events.

7/24/2008 11:54:22 AM

Have lost most interest in the Olympics. Will only be watching Equestrian events when I can.

7/24/2008 10:49:33 AM

7/23/2008 10:33:24 PM

USA Rocks! Go Team! You are our true modern day warriors!

7/23/2008 6:47:18 PM

THE BEST OF THE BEST, THEY'LL BRING HOME THE GOLD!!!

7/23/2008 6:25:12 PM

My local cable company doesn't have Oxygen which is broadcasting the equestrian events

7/23/2008 6:16:32 PM

You are all totally wonderful, riders too!!!

7/23/2008 5:50:39 PM

I don't get Oxygen, so I won't be able to watch xc on TV. Will it be on the internet?

7/23/2008 4:45:31 PM

if NBC will show them!

7/23/2008 4:42:03 PM

I don't think we should be there at all

7/23/2008 4:06:53 PM

On television if any of the equestrian competition is shown!!

7/23/2008 2:47:42 PM

GO TEAM USA!!!!!

7/23/2008 2:00:27 PM

Can't wait until the china olympics are over so I can start watching again.

7/23/2008 12:23:38 PM

Unvortunately, TV coverage has always been poor.

7/23/2008 12:13:17 PM

Go USA!!!!!!!

7/23/2008 11:24:04 AM

Go U.S.A.!

7/23/2008 11:13:29 AM

Depends on how it's broadcast-no cable or dish here, just network TV & coverage typically very poor.

7/23/2008 10:56:15 AM

I'm boycotting the entire thing, for political reasons

7/23/2008 10:31:01 AM

I hope and pray that no horses or riders are killed or seriously injured!

7/23/2008 9:55:13 AM

Go Team Go Horses

7/23/2008 9:14:40 AM

I will watch on TV unless there is not enough and then will resort to Internet.

7/23/2008 9:12:56 AM

We will miss Teddy!

7/23/2008 9:10:13 AM

No cabel/satellite and supposedly not being broadcast by regular sports networks

7/23/2008 7:42:37 AM

TIVO!!

7/23/2008 7:11:54 AM

7/23/2008 7:07:16 AM

Come on, eventing team, win one for Theodore O'Connor!

7/23/2008 7:06:42 AM

Why would anyone put their horse or themselves in a place where the air quality is so poor?

7/23/2008 7:06:34 AM

I will be cheering on Canada! Go Red and White!

7/23/2008 7:03:53 AM

Go Team! We are routing for you.

7/23/2008 7:00:23 AM

How about other teams since it's not only Americans here? Huray for the horses,whatever nationality!

7/23/2008 3:09:42 AM

May have to upgrade cable for the channels I need.

7/23/2008 2:10:12 AM

I find China's human rights violations unforgivable I refuse to watch anything.

NBC should air more of the equestrian events due to US hosting the WEG in 2010.

7/22/2008 8:59:00 PM

It's too bad they don't show more horse sports on TV

7/22/2008 8:25:47 PM

7/22/2008 8:24:32 PM

Unfortunately, equestrian sports is never has very good Olympic coverage.

7/22/2008 8:20:24 PM

7/22/2008 6:24:57 PM

The fun of watching the Olympics will be tempered by worries about the horses' health.

7/22/2008 5:26:28 PM

Hopefully there will be decent coverage on cable TV.

7/22/2008 5:22:36 PM

You have to pay extra for digital TV in Canada to see any of the Olympic equestrian events. Sucks!

7/22/2008 5:22:34 PM

It is a extremly poor enviroment to have a horse in

7/22/2008 5:19:40 PM

How I will view the events depends on how they're provided.

7/22/2008 5:18:59 PM

Wish they'd show the ParaEquestrian events! Know one of the USA riders!!

7/22/2008 5:17:57 PM

Go Canada, go

7/22/2008 4:55:27 PM

Go Eventing Team!

7/22/2008 4:47:35 PM

Rural, no cable or satellite or Oxygen = no Olympic Equestrian events - what were they thinking?

7/22/2008 4:45:16 PM

I will watch on regular TV, not cable or satulite

7/22/2008 4:42:56 PM

Hope they show more of the compatitions this year at a normal time.

7/22/2008 4:34:55 PM

I just pray that the riders are very judicious in their riding and protect their horses

7/22/2008 4:28:35 PM

I plan to watch as much as possible!

7/22/2008 4:20:50 PM
