I just posted video of the 1936 Olympics under the eventing section. Big difference

I've been following it in-depth on eventing nation, and I'm psyched. However, my county has decided to hold out fair that week, so I'll be showing horses without internet during it.

I'm excited! If you're in the US, you can use this link to look-up the equestrian-specific dates/times for televised sessions: Olympic TV Schedule | NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo | NBC Olympics

Under "TV Schedule by Sport," click "Click here to see all Equestrian on TV." You'll have to set up your location by providing your zip code and cable provider first.

Ann Romney's horse is a mare named Rafalca. I'm cheering for her too!

Here's a link to a Youtube video of Rafalca performing a Grand Prix test at the 2012 USEF Dressage Festival of Champions, National Grand Prix Dressage Championship and Olympic Selection Trials at Gladstone, New Jersey in June:
