Olympia Horse Show Begins Today

To greet the horsemen and women of Olympia 2016, here’s some hot Olympia action from 1922. Let’s hope they have a few more bums on seats in W14 this week! It’ll be superstar dressage horse Valegro’s last competition before he returns to Carl Hester’s yard for a gentler life altogether.

  1. Thanks to Comcast’s streaming television of this year’s Olympics I was able to see a lot the the equestrian events. Biggest thrill was the opportunity to see Valegro in action. I remember seeing Rembrandt . . .hard to believe it was years ago. When he was on his game he was also remarkable.
