Closing ceremony of Rio Olympic Games
Closing ceremony of Rio Olympic Games

The Olympics have taken possession of the world’s collective heart. A sprawling South American nation rife with economic, political and social upheaval plays host to the Olympic Games and the world with barely the strength to hold its own. And yet the world comes, the Games proceed, records are set, and at the closing there are many a wet eye. It was touching to watch the whole event and just when you thinkĀ  Olympic Women’s Beach Volleyball will never, ever, ever end the closing ceremony is finished.

Dressage is probably my favorite sport of all next to Figure Skating, particularly Pairs and Men’s. But this piece is about Dressage at the Olympics. I’m super excited to watch what unfolds. This one of the most difficult of any discipline with everything dependant on the communication and harmony between horse and rider makes for very edge of your seat viewing.
