August 6, 2012


We’ve enjoyed watching the Olympics this past week or so.  My favorites are the Equestrian events.  All of them – the Three Day Event, the Dressage and the Show Jumping.  All three take immense strength, concentration and coordination.  It is a pleasure to watch riders at this level compete. 

Unfortunately, NBC did not always show these events when they had them scheduled.  And as these were all taped, there is no excuse for that.  They also had some bad editing – cutting from an important movement or jump to something non related.  They did this in other sports as well. As I said, bad editing.  And sometimes just no comprehension of a particular sport.

And one last comment.  I am going to bop (with cast iron skillet) the next person who refers to dressage as “dancing”. These are all movements basically found in nature and refined, condensed or extended. It is a strenuous and demanding sport.
