Well we really feel like we've been to Rio now. We spent the afternoon at Corcovado Christ the Redeemer. Serenity in the clouds and truly awe-inspiring.

Our sightseeing was preceded by a great morning watching Emma and Zidane, who were much more on form. The pair produced a super test for 69.914% - so so close to 70% but a really good result in 5th place.

Read Rozzie's blog from Day 10 in Rio.

Grade II was won by Great Britain's Natasha Baker on Cabral, with a score of 73.400%. Silver went to Demi Vermeulen of the Netherlands with 71.600% and bronze went to Rixt Van Der Horst (also of the Netherlands) with 70.743% - so it was very close!

Grade Ia was also decided, with Great Britain claiming gold with Sophie Christiansen and also silver with Anne Dunham. Bronze went to local rider Sergio Oliva.

Tomorrow is our last day and we will be there to cheer for Lisa Martin and Firegirl in the Grade IV Freestyle.
