Individual  rankings  HERE:


Please note:  Italy’s two riders did quite well.  I applaud both Stefano Brecciaroli and Vittoria Pannizon for the tremendous effort and great rides.   Vittoria Pannizon achieved 11th place in the overall  individual standings.  Pannizon’s dressage score was 53,50 , but she went CLEAR cross-country ride (no time faults) and 2 CLEAR  jumping rounds (no time faults)  in the show jumping test!   She has great potential–was lacking a bit in the dressage score–her horse is an excellent cross-country jumper.  Stefano Brecciaroli also an outstanding rider, achieved an excellent dressage mark  of 38,50 , but had time faults on his clear cross-country ride, and in show jumping rounds.  I really had hoped he would earn a medal for Italy.

Moreover, this particular Olympic cross-country course was quite difficult…that’s  the opinion of most riders…

HERE is an article with riders comments ‘after’ cross-country:
