Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro....I think it is absolutely amazing how a horse when doing a half pass  all of its legs are on a different track as apposed to say a shoulder in where their legs are on three different tracks or a walk where all of their legs are on one track

#greatwalker  London 2012, Olympic individual dressage competition. I wangled a shift at Greenwich Park that day and I managed to watch the end of it. Total immersion in Team GB fever and pure joy when the crowd saw Charlotte's score on the board. I have never in my life waved a flag so vigorously.

Dujardin and the GB team won gold in the dressage team event, which was impressive for obvious reasons, but I was doubly impressed that she wore a HELMET and not the traditional hat.  Hopefully more people will recognize that helmets won't affect your score and safety is more important than looking cool.
