Back in the early days of these Olympics I was talking with a nonhorsey friend about my disappointment in not being able to watch any of the three-day competitions on TV or my computer.
Friend asked me about the different equestrian competitions, and made a pretty good stab at pronouncing the word "dressage." She has seen the "Royal Lipizzan Stallions" so we talked about that and about competitive dressage.
A couple of days later, I suggested she search youtube for "dressage," "grand prix dressage" and one my favorites, "camel dressage." As well as the NBC videos if she could access them.
The next time I saw her she thanked me so much for telling her about those videos. She told me how beautiful the horses were, and the dressage itself--and she loved the camel!
I told a horsey friend I felt I had won a "convert"!
It just was so wonderful to share something I love with someone and hear them tell me they were so glad I did, that they loved it.
