At this moment I am off enjoying the Equine Affair. I hope it is not raining on me and that all the horses and riders are safe away from the thunderstorms they are predicting. Well really I hope that the forecasters are wrong and that today is a perfect day in Massachusetts. I am using my absence to talk to you all about a news story I heard from “Glenn The Geek” at the 2010 WEG radio show.
The woman who has more then once caused me to swear on this blog (and not from joy) Anky Von Grunsven, has decided she wants to win the WEG gold medal in REINING in 2010. Not dressage, reining.n You see winning Gold Medals in dressage when you are not the best isn’t good enough. She needs to work her evil magic (I swear that woman has a pack with the devil, there is no other explanation) on another poor discipline. Hopefully those judges are not as easy to manipulate as the ones in dressage.
I think I would be less pissed about the announcement if…
A) She didn’t mention medals in her desire to switch
B) She was giving up dressage in order to switch, not just being greedy
C) She actually cared about reining as a discipline
D) I thought she liked horses and wasn’t abusive.
You can see her scary smile with her all decked out in western gear here.
