People who had never even HEARD of dressage are now discussing it. I guess at least my family will now have heard of it, at least!
Just a bizarre turn of events for the equestrian world, I think. Too bad she doesn't event, the eventers would love the publicity I am sure ... of course, then all the animal rights people could come out of the woodwork and get upset about the dangers of it all. So I suppose dressage is the safest thing right now.
This is on the dressage forum, thanks Mike, if I could figure out how to delete it, I would.
