    I personally think the Europeans are tougher than here. At least some venues are known for being horribly tough.

    In some ways I agree. But a lot of judges over here do not tolerate rollkur/over flexion. So it would be interesting to see. Different styles I guess.

    It's not widely tolerated there either, seriously.

    I guess I worded that wrong. But yeah, it isn't. I meant that she's just made a name for herself, so judges might have biases towards other riders in that regard. I don't get why the FEI doesn't take more action though. Plenty of people do it with no consequences.
