Olympics equestrian - eventing dressage

Congratulations to Lucinda Fredericks on Flying Finish for a lovely dressage test (the first one I managed to watch on the Olympic channel too). All the riders did a great job in the dressage. Here's to some brilliant and safe rides on the cross country phase from the Australian team (safe for all the riders and horses, one hopes!). We're in the team silver position but so much changes over the jumps. Fingers crossed for a fairy tale year for Andrew Hoy. Congratulations to NZ's Mark Todd (can we claim him too? Like Pharlap??). What a rider. I think he might still be competing in his nineties...

twenty dressage sketches in twenty days: sketch 1

It's hard to keep up with drawing when there's a baby in the house so rather than give up I have pledged to do a dressage sketch each day for the next twenty days. They will be quick and unpolished. I will not be a perfectionist. I will not be a perfectionist...
