How amazing was Gabby?!
Showjumping was definitely my favorite:
Ian Miller with Big Ben, my all-time favorite showjumping team!
The course in London
Though I love watching cross country as well - I can't imagine how scary that must be!
Zara Phillips in the 2012 Olympics - Team Great Britain took the eventing silver medal.
Both today and tomorrow feature gold medal finals - individual jumping today, and dressage tomorrow. While I'm more a fan of jumping, I can enjoy dressage. I took a few dressage lessons in high school and let me tell you, it is not easy! Though I am annoyed by Ann Romney and Rafalca and all the media coverage. (AND...people who say dressage should not be an Olympic sport. Hmm, what about ping pong? Trampolining? RACEWALKING!! You could make that argument for easily half of the other Olympic sports.) Though I am enjoying Steven Colbert and the fact that he has chosen dressage as his sport of the summer!!!
Best line: "How does a horse get into dressage? 'Dad, I don't want to go into battle...I just want to DANCE!'!!!"
What have been your favorite Olympic events?
