"Not all riders at the Olympics are the best, in fact, if you watch the second half of the dressage, there’s some pretty ordinary riders in there, and you think, ‘shit, I could ride better than that’ and you know you’re probably right. I believe that some pony club competition riders could beat some of the Olympians. But the reason those Olympians qualify, isn’t because they’re the best riders, or have the best horses, or the best gear, it’s because they’ve learnt to give everything they’ve got. And you know sometimes that won’t be enough, but I can tell you this, if you’re the underdog out there and you give 110% you bloody may well beat the best who only give 90%."
Back on campus and preparing for the first day of classes tomorrow. My timetable isn’t too bad, managed to get most Wednesdays off! Still scared though. Bring on second year semester 2!
