Dressage is an Olympic event?

Nothing says "privileged twattery" quite like winning a Gold medal in dressage.  IMO.

//why, yes, I am feeling snarky this evening
//nothing says "trailer park twattery" quite like opining on dressage at a keyboard on a Saturday night

If it weren't for his horse, he wouldn't have spent that year in college those years preparing for the Olympics

Well, there's always that year in college.  Or that night in Enumclaw.

Oh no!  No horse dancing!

The Olympics need more events that are decided by stopwatches or tape measures and fewer events decided by "judges."

Pretty hilarious how much misconception there is about the equestrian events in the Olympics. Especially Dressage.

It's a horse, so you should go with ranch dressage.

Dressage is a sport/hobby of the rich (very rich). No doubt. But dressage is deceptively difficult requiring intense training, dedication and precision. Most riders and horses practice for years, if not decades to master the sport. Beautiful to watch the moves those amazing animals can be taught to execute. Both horse and rider must be in sync with each other. A horse with a painful mouth can't perform to their best. One of my favorite Olympic sports to watch. Along with all the equestrian events.

/not rich
//not an equestrian
///but I am a vet, so I do understand horses.
