(Left, she is explaining the trakehner's question -- that you had to gallop at this nice big fence, but use the immediate left turn after to get the horse back on his feet for the brush drop into the 2nd water, and huge corner out.)
When we went over the Sunken Road, Sinead stopped and explained how she needed to ride that complex. She said she had to be soft going in, not over-ride Tate. Then power out, holding her line. She spoke confidently; she knew her horse could do this, and she had a plan, and was ready to execute. (See the video for how it all worked out.)
What this showed me is that when you do your homework, you have the experience, and you have confidence in what you are doing --- there can be a successful outcome. It is not strange that Ecogold products are following this same diagram; Patricia knows what she is doing, her textiles perform for horses and riders, and the experience and confidence they have in their products result in success. By the way, William Fox-Pitt was riding in an Ecogold pad, too!
