RAFALCA & Ebeling-DRESSAGE-Olympics-Ann Romney

Rafalca- (Ann Romney is part owner) DRESSAGE Mare ridden by Jan Ebling- Tomorrow - first phase of Olympic DRESSAGE--the test shown on video is a free style Grand Prix filmed during a Dressage test (Dressage horses and riders have tests that they must execute before judges -from 1st level through Grand Prix)--here in CA---
I have posted on DRESSAGE many times here - I will remind that it is/ was training for WAR and is not a "ballet"--GRRRRRR to those who think it is easy!

Would you believe me and boss watched this at work?? She was streaming it live from London. She said, "We're not that busy, let's watch it."

I swear I have the best boss in the world. I was getting paid to watch the Equestrian part of the Olympics.

And since she, herself is a horse trainer was pointing out a lot of stuff on how the horse was behaving, telling me to watch how the riders urge the horses, etc.

It was cool!
