“Oh Crap” Moment of the Day: Dressage apocalypse by Wylie, published Aug. 21, 2013:

That moment when you realize you might get sucked up into a tornado mid-dressage test. EN shared this video yesterday and we just had to pass it along.

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!

[Николай Лаптев]

All I have to say is, RESPECT.

Go Riding.
