The greatest show on earth is underway as the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games has commenced. In addition to the helmets that will be worn for eventing and showjumping…..we are hopeful that there are at least a couple of equestrians out there who want to become the biggest role models on earth, by making the decision to wear helmets for dressage. In a few days time we shall find out…..:)
In the meantime, here is an excellent video interview with the President of the Fédération Équestre Internationale Princess Haya discussing the equestrian events of the games. Jordanian Princess Haya bint Al Hussein is a former Olympic athlete and champion of sport in the Middle East.
