On the one hand, yay, another figure skater on horseback! On the other hand, I am shrieking at the sight of bare feet in open stirrups and no helmets. It's such a dangerous combination - my stomach feels like it's full of ice right now, just thinking of how easy it is for a foot to slip through those stirrups and the rider to be dragged. Kamila, take better care of yourself!

There was a time in the past when horse riders and cyclists didn't wear helmets. Humanity survived :)

Oh, yeah, it's just, as horse owner and a lifelong rider, I have seen some truly gruesome accidents happen even under the safest circumstances, from shattered elbows to people falling underneath horses and having their faces trodden in, concussions from a horse just tripping and the rider landing head first, people being caught with a foot in the stirrups and being dragged, whiplash, dislocations, and so on, and, well, I'd really rather not see people take unnecessary risks. And while I know Kamila came out safely from this, else we'd have a very different post on social media, it would have been a real pity for her to start out the Olympic season with, say, a foot needing reconstruction because a horse trod on it and spun around. I just want her to make it through the season safe and sound!

Jonathan Guerreiro about Kamila:

"I am mesmerized by Kamila, especially after we performed together on the Tutberidze show. She is a God-kissed person who is incredibly charming in life. The feeling that Camila is not skating to the music, but writing this music with her movements. Also what jumps! She has everything she needs to win."
