‘Oh Crap’ Monday Classics: Dressage Apocalypse

That moment when you realize you might get sucked up into a tornado mid-dressage test. Monday is already the crappiest day of the week, so it only makes sense that we make things official.

This Russian rider’s freestyle begins pleasantly enough — you can actually hear some birds tweeting in the background. Then the ominous music kicks in, the wind picks up, the sky darkens, and it begins to thunder. Then rain, then monsoon, then… dun-dun-duuuuun.

Nonetheless, the show must go on!

All I have to say is, RESPECT.
