olympic eventing and dressage

Eventing over and Australia had some falls but overall did a good job. Wonderful result for NZ's Mark Todd. Boy is Germany looking good in eventing these days. We're going to have to get our skates on before they're dominating all the equestrian disciplines. Maybe that ship has sailed.

Here's to the classicists out there and those doing their best to ride and train with feel and sensitivity in the cut-throat world of top level competition.
