Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend the Olympic Dressage Freestyle event - it was one of the most amazing equestrian sporting events I have ever seen in my entire life. And because Charlotte Dujardin won a gold for Team GB and Laura Bechtolsheimer also won a bronze, that atmosphere was explosive! People were screaming until they couldn't scream anymore, Charlotte was sobbing away on the podium, Valegro (her horse) looked like he wanted to give their routine another go, and the crowd did six rounds of a pretty awesome mexican wave. What a day.
I've always enjoyed watching the Freestyle Dressage events, and it's always been a dream of mine to have a go on a Grand Prix dressage horse, just once. I imagine it would be like sitting on the Lamborghini of all horses... One day maybe, if I'm lucky.
