Why Dressage is not a Sport!
I have to highlight quickly before I begin, if you do not know what dressage is – leave this site now.
Once you experience this travesty, you cannot remove this from your mind. Imagine a world where you never knew about, or experienced Justin Bieber.
Wouldn’t the world be a much better place for you?
You may say that comparing Justin Bieber to dressage has no comparative qualities.
I disagree, having seen both – Each situation left me with an overwhelming desire to kill myself. If the reaction is the same, the action must be the same/similar.
Action -> Reaction
This site as such will dig into the differing aspects of dressage. We will examine this “sport” from different angles to point out how ridiculous this event truly is and while along the way there will be many words to describe dressage – sport will not be one of them.
In fact on the dressage Wikipedia page you can find the telling quote – Dressage is occasionally referred to as “Horse Ballet“.
Last time I checked Ballet was not a sport, it was art. Why if we include a horse does it become a sport?
If Leonardo painted Mona Lisa while on a horse, would this be a sport? What if the Horse sculpted Michelangelo’s David, does he get a gold medal? (Bearing in mind the horse wouldn’t get the credit; it would be Michelangelo as he trained the horse)
This is just one of many profound arguements you will find as you navigate www.dressageisnotasport.com
As a final point, I realise a lot of people will disagree with this site. My girlfriend has said that I am being silly.
My final point is this.
No, no I am not – Dressage is Silly.
