He was also down a set and came back and won it.

The game was so damn exciting to watch.

The horse absolutely does not do all the work, that statement clearly demonstrates a total lack of knowledge of sport on your part. No offense
The equestrian events in the Olympics all have international followings among every social class, so again, I don't follow how the "keeping rich people happy" argument.

If that's the case, the horses would be randomly selected before each round. They would all be raised by the same stable, etc.

Anyone else slightly disturbed that during the javelin toss they have people running towards the hurling spear to mark it? Call me crazy but my natural instinct isn't to run towards the tool originally designed to hunt with.

These guys are like Batman (Chong Wei) vs Joker (Lin Dan).. unstoppable force vs immovable object.

Long history of rivalry, very different play style, best players of the era.

Big deal for any badminton fan, and likely, a rivalry we won't see again in a long long time.

Both are probably going to retire soon, as both are in the twilight of their career.

So how much percentage would you put on the horse and the rider?

I'm sorry, but every single other olympic event is 100% human effort without help or external factors. This alone is enough for me to want to kick it off the olympic games.

whether or not equestrian events should be part of the olympics may be up for debate but the fact is that these riders are there in London representing Canada in their events so we should ALL be supportive of their efforts. Which makes the following kinda suck:

Spoiler!
if these tests are really done for the horses' benefit (ie: to ensure their safety), why are these tests random then? shouldn't ALL the horses get tested to ensure they're all 100% healthy and ready for competition?

Just watched the women's 400m hurdles. There was a Bulgarian athlete named Vania Stambolova and she wiped out over a hurdle, resulting in a DNF. Anyway the best part of this was the commentary:

"[...] but Stambolova --"
"and she did stumble over"

It takes a significant amount of time for a relationship to be built between horse and rider. If the relationship does not exist, the horse will no listen to the rider.

Without a human, the horse will not do any of the things we ask of them in competition. It all comes down to the individual humans balance, muscle control, timing, ability to command respect. It's fair to say, it's 100% human effort being judged.

It's easy to criticize a sport you do not understand, which is whats happening here. There's a lot more to equestrian than what meets the eye.

Every horse goes through a health assessment upon arriving in London, and I believe another before and after every round. I'm not sure if there are also random checks or if this was discovered during a scheduled one, it's definitely a bad ruling though.

If I want to watch a human battle a beast as a display of his/her command over it, I think I'd rather watch bull riding.

If Olympics really is a show of "athleticism," all the criterias you say in human balance, muscle control, timing, ability to command respect seems like a far more exponentially challenging and valorous display of human achievement in bull riding rather than... you know, making a horse prance about.

Notice that Bolt didn't look 100% focused and still ran that well? I'd imagine with more focus and pushing all the way, under optimum conditions, 9.50 is attainable.
